Tale Of The Harrowing Perch Tale Of The Harrowing Perch Presentation Transcript

  • Tale Of The Harrowing Perch
    By: Nora “The Empress” Tarr
  • What you are about to hear is a true story
    Location is set in Dallas, Texas – Summertime – My first travelling training session
    I spent a week’s pay on my new blue suit,
    – matching pumps, and a great hairdo.
    My nickname is “Empress”
    – let all of this information, set the tone for what follows.
    Presentation By Empress Tarr
  • Upon Arrival At The Facility
    Always check your equipment:
    • Visual Aids – Projector - Screen
    • Table
    • Water
    • Writing Implements
    • Adjust Podium (if needed)
    • Amplification (microphone, speakers, etc.)
  • General Preparation Tips
    • Arrive early;
    • Assess your room and stage;
    • Assure comfort in temperature and lighting;
    • Arrange your presentation materials;
    • Welcome your audience!
  • Tips For a Great Presentation
    • Always put your audience at ease;
    • Be confident and be comfortable;
    • Exude energy, and controlled enthusiasm;
    • Know your material as well as your audience.
    so far so good …
  • The Perch
    The Perch is a type of pose.
    It is often-used by skilled presenters.
    It works well, when used properly, putting your audience at ease.
    Makes them feel like you are just settling in to chat with them, one-on-one…
    Instead of standing stiffly at a podium…
    Or formally lecturing from the stage.
  • The Perch “Technique”
    The goal is to appear as if you are lightly seated on the corner of a sturdy… (emphasis on sturdy) table.
  • The Perch “Technique”
    Maintain eye contact with your audience…
    Carefully position one hip on the corner of the table – “perch” yourself on the corner of the table;
    Lean slightly forward towards your audience, crossing one leg over the other;
    Maintain excellent posture;
    Smile warmly and continue speaking.
    You have successfully executed “the Perch”!
  • Well,that is what should have happened…
    my table was one of those lightweight, folding tables
    Even my new blue suit, (though I am thankful it was a pant suit)
    – with my matching pumps, and what was a great hairdo
    could not save me….
    • My handouts were jettisoned over my head…
    • My butt unflatteringly hit the floor…
    • My glass of water was somehow in my hair…
    • I now had a birds-eye view of my audience’s knees.
  • Conclusion
    Simply put – a woman partially seated on the corner of a light-weight folding table, causes a perfectly scientific, logically, explainable event.
    The “Perch” fails, leading instead to an undesired – though obvious transition to the “Seesaw”.
    This ultimately leads to an almost certain, embarrassing, and deeply significant damage to one’s self esteem – at least on a temporary basis.
