If noone is taking your business proposals seriously, it may be time to rethink the way you make your presentations. Here are a few tips:
* Be concise – Few managers have the patience or time to listen to someone who rambles.
* Use visuals – A simple graph or table can help you get your point across to people who prefer visual media.
* Offer supporting material – If you have a study or statistics to back up what you have to say, make sure that you have a copy with you.
