Transcript

  • 1. How to deliver a Presentation
  • 2. This presentation takes you through the stages involved in the planning and delivery of a presentation. Consideration will also be given to the effective use of PowerPoint slides in your presentation.
  • 3.
    • Has a clear structure
    • Encourages independent thinking
    • Uses clear explanations
    • Is delivered with enthusiasm
  • 4. Your presentation should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Beginning – Tell your audience what you are going to say. Middle – Say it. End – Tell them what you said.
  • 5.
    • Choose your topic
    • Plan your presentation outline
    • Build the talk from your outline
    • Choose your delivery method(s)
  • 6.
    • Consider using one or two of the following:
    • Video
    • PowerPoint
    • Overhead Projector
    • Handouts
    • White/Black board
  • 7. It is important that your talk is geared to the knowledge level of your audience. Research your audience to avoid going over their heads, or boring them. Do not talk down to your audience.
  • 8. Know the time constraints for your presentation, and leave time for questions. A typical audience has an attention span of around 20 minutes, so get important points in early.
  • 9. Use humour, when appropriate, to add sparkle to your talk. Demonstrations also add interest. If you are using a whiteboard or overhead projector, different coloured pens will help to add emphasis.
  • 10.
    • Introduce yourself and give your credentials
    • Tell your audience the rules
    • Speak loudly and clearly
    • Pace yourself
    • Make eye contact
    • Bring your talk to a clear end
  • 11. At the beginning of your talk, make it clear whether questions are allowed at any time, or if you will take them at the end. Repeat questions asked, so everyone hears, and make your answers clear and concise.
  • 12.
    • PowerPoint slides need to be clear, easy to read and understand. As a general rule –
    • Don’t use more than 5 or 6 words in a title
    • Don’t use more than 9 words per line
    • Don’t use more than 7 lines of text per slide
  • 13. Colour is great for highlighting text, but don’t go overboard! Too many different colours will make your slides difficult to read. Use contrasting colours for text and backgrounds. White on a dark background, or black on a light background is fine. Beware of white backgrounds!
  • 14. Bold text stands out very well, as does text in italics . Be cautious using underlining as it can make your slide too busy. Space lines out evenly, avoid gaps in your text, and don’t use too many different fonts .
  • 15. Pictures, charts, and graphs are very useful in conveying meaning. Don’t crowd your slides though, try to use a separate slide for each picture or graph.
  • 16.
    • Give some thought to which sort of graph will convey your message best. You could use:
    • Line Graphs
    • Pie Charts
    • Bar Graphs
    • Scatter Chart
  • 17.  
  • 18.  
  • 19.  
  • 20.  
  • 21. Also consider tables for getting your message across.
  • 22. Once your presentation is ready, the last thing you must do is practice, practice, and then practice again. You are now ready to face your audience and deliver an interesting and informative presentation. http://presentations-expert.blogspot.com
