Evidence beats opinion. That’s why Rexi Media is different.
Lots of presentation training companies base their techniques on anecdotal information and observations. Not us. We apply research transform the way you create and deliver presentations. We’ve combined that research with our own experience and proven best practices to develop the our workshops.
Rexi comes from the Latin verb “to direct” or “to guide,” and we chose it for our name because it expresses what we do: Give you the skills to guide audiences to a desired action. Audiences will forget over 80 percent of what you present. We teach you how to engage your audience to increase their retention.
We’ve distilled our training down to techniques scientifically proven to work, and eliminated those based on myths. In a nutshell, here’s what sets Rexi Media apart and why we can improve the results you get from your presentations:
- We don’t tolerate stale thinking—We constantly research the latest presentation techniques. Our consulting approach combines principles from cognitive psychology, sociology, advertising, sales, marketing and adult education.
- We customize every program—We find out what your goals are and tailor our workshops and training sessions to meet them—just like any expert presenter would do.
- We measure long-term retention—All our workshops, webinars and executive coaching sessions have built-in, measurable checklists participants can use long after they’ve completed our training so that their presentations stay sharp.
Debunking Presentation Myths
Variety is the key to engagement.
Rexi Media Finding:
Variety sustains attention (see screen shot below), but it only leads to recall if you include other techniques.
Too much variety
Variety will get attention but if you want to control the 10% people remember, you must repeat it at least 3-4 times during a presentation. Otherwise, people will only remember the gist of the presentation, and very few, random specifics.
