How to Rock your
« No matter the stretch of our reason,
beyond lies a lot more to surprise us »
Théodore Roszak – American History teacher
You don’t say things, you sell your idea
Act as a true salesperson & carefully choose your communication style
to express your words.
Every presentation is a new story
Everybody likes stories. Imply someone you care about in it. Put
images on your words. Pick a funny fact or a personal anecdote.
Question your audience.
Individualize your show
Scan your audience; make them feel like your
unique viewer. « Hypnotize & meet » each spectator.
Quote famous/influential people
Make your speech credible with verified & approved content
Make sure you get on stage relaxed
Work on your respiration, meditate, learn to improvise, work out,
dance or practice your techniques. Get an object to relieve stress &
guide your audience: pen, glasses or else
Master your body language
Get yourself on tape or someone to assess you &
work on your unconscious gestures & bad habits.
You don’t want to look static, neither hyperactive.
Keep your heap up, back straight & use your hands.
Occupy the whole space
Get to know the place & objects around you
beforehand; the scene must be yours
Take your time
Watch your rhythm & tone of voice.
The audience is here to listen & learn from you.
Make short breaks & silences. Be convincing.
Keep it up along the way
Your show must be punchy. Interact with someone,
add a video, tell a story, show a case study, etc.
Adapt your speech to your audience.
Be the star
Don’t let your slideshow steal you the show
Look at political speeches,
TV hosts, TED speakers,
movies’ main characters
or industries’ best presentations
Work on your intro & transitions.
