Ever thought about the cost of poor presentations?

Microsoft estimates that professionals waste $250 million per day due to poor presentations.

The costs of a poor presentation include:

  • Delayed decisions or no decisions
  • Additional meetings to clarify the issue or make the sale
  • The dollar cost of the poor sales presentations

How do you calculate the cost of poor presentations?

  • Estimate the number of presentations done per week
  • Estimate the percentage of those presentations that are done poorly resulting in more work.
  • Estimate the amount of time spent around clarifying the poor presentation, time spent around the presentation, or time spent getting the initial call.
  • Determine the average salary of the employee

Example:

Avg Annual Salary: $50,000 = $25.64 hourly

40 presentations per week X 52 weeks per year X 25% require more work X 10 extra hours required X $25.64 per hour = $133,328 per year (Annual Cost of Poor Presentations)
