When Presentations go Wrong - Some Badly Wrong

Martin Oxley, Managing Director of buzzback Europe, will be presenting When Presentations Go Wrong - Some Badly Wrong on Tuesday 15th September at 10am GMT at ESOMAR Insights Festival 2020.

We all recognise that story telling is an important part of delivering research that moves both hearts and minds. We also see and hear a lot about great successes. But what about presentations that move hearts and minds but in the wrong direction? We don’t hear much about those do we?

We all know there is a huge market for ‘bloopers’ as well as the great movies. So, we think it’s time to hear about the research ‘bloopers’.

This fringe event is all about what can go wrong in presentations. From the slides that don't make sense, the projectors that stop working, being attacked by a bee, writing 'this ad stinks' in your notes - but having them projected, having your flies open, having the wrong audience to some very heated arguments (all have happened to me.)

Come along and tell us about your worst experience or even the ones you have heard about.

Let's learn from our collective mistakes, let's remember we are a people business and where there are people there are mistakes. Let’s have a bit of fun in the process too.

Oh, and remember what they say: stupid people don’t learn from their mistakes, sensible people learn from their mistakes but the really intelligent learn from other people's mistakes.

And finally, to make it a bit more fun, there is a vote and prize for the winner (or loser depending on your perspective.)
