  33. 33. The Wow Factor in a presentation can be created by many things, listed below are a number of things to consider in your delivery. Eye contact Look at the audience as you speak. If it is a small audience, you can look at each person in a short period of time. If it is a large audience, look at the audience in small “clumps” and move from one clump to another. One way to insure good eye contact is to look at your audience before you start to speak. Face your audience pause, smile and then speak. This will help you maintain good eye contact throughout your presentation as well as commanding immediate attention. One of the ways to have consistently good eye contact is not to read your speech. Use note cards that have key words on them. The word or phrase should trigger the thought in your mind and then you can speak it. If you are including a quotation or complex statistics, reading from your note card actually lends credibility. If you write out your speech you will tend to read it and lose eye contact with the audience, as well as not being as enthusiastic in delivery as when you speak from note cards. Remember – the purpose of eye contact is enable you to modify your delivery according to audience attentiveness and response. Dramatise Include a “wow” factor in your speech. Something in your speech should make your audience think, “Wow!” It could be a story, a dramatic point, an unusual statistic, or burst of high energy that helps the audience understand immediately. With a “wow” factor, you then have something to look forward to in the speech that you know will have an impact on your audience. You’ll become a more enthusiastic speaker because the “wow” factor will get you and your audience pumped for the speech. Energy The greatest asset any public speaking expert can have is ENERGY. Energy comes in many colours and hues, from a whisper to a shout. Some will define energy as passion, enthusiasm or 'fire in the belly.'  With this fire, even a trivial message becomes compelling; without it, the most powerful message will fall unheard. We say 'fire your purpose with passion. Run it through your principle-filter. Prepare. Practice. Then, present. The result will be enormous speaking POWER.' Tell story Tell your own story somewhere in the presentation--especially in a technical presentation. Include a personal experience that connects to your speech content, and the audience will connect with you. You want to help the audience link emotionally with what you are talking about, and the personal experience does that. With almost any topic you might choose, you have at least one “war example.
