Unfortunately, presentations of this sort can easily become a kind of
inter-office "career day" or "show-n-tell for grownups"
To keep your presentation from become a sermon on the virtues of
technical communication, I'd keep things centered around two themes:
1) TIME
2) Money
Anyone who can demonstrate how their job saves me time and/or $$ can
preach to me all day -and if someone can show me how they've implemented
their latest brainstorm, software or gadget to actually MAKE $$ for me,
well, I just became a tithing member of the church.
Amen, sister, preach on! I be-lieve, yes I be-lieve!!!

to present something to your entire company, what would you present?



Every morning, one of us presents a 'something'. Often developers do
show and tells of whatever they've developed recently, or tools or
technologies they are investigating or implementing. Managers and
account managers will update us on how various opportunities are
progressing. The admin people will periodically update us on the
procedures we should be following.



Normally, when I present, because I'm fairly new in post, I'm able to
preset a new thing. First time, I showed the tool I was intending to
buy. Next time round I showed some prototype output I'd made with said
tool. The next time I used this slot to get developer buy-in and
feedback on how I was intending to refer to various UI elements
(hemidemisemisubtabs etc...) in the forthcoming manual.



I'm due to present again next week and am wondering, if you could talk
to your entire company for 15 to 20 minutes about anything at all, what
would you tell 'em?



Would love to hear,

Thanks!
