      What would be an appropriate topic???
      Choose something you:

      ·Relate it to your audience
      (why should they care?)
    • The Elaboration

    • The Ending
      Ending a presentation effectively is as important as starting it with a strong impression. The ending should resonate, inspire, and connect!
      If you feel your words can't deliver the appropriate punch, consider using other people's words.
      Do not just say "I'm done!"
    • But composing the presentation is only part of it...
      We also have to deal with...
    • Tip #1 for Dealing with Stage Fright
      KNOWLEDGE
      Research what you are discussing.
      If you know that you know then you are not afraid to tell people.
    • Tip #2 for Dealing with Stage Fright
      FAMILIARITY
      Choose a familiar topic. That way, if you slip up, you are able to improvise based on prior knowledge.
    • Tip #3 for Dealing with Stage Fright
      THE BACKUP PLAN
      "This PowerPoint slide has a dynamic graph comparing reading scores throughout the district, which you would have seen if I remembered to bring a spare projection bulb."
      Plan for the worst but hope for the best. That way you don't have to stress if something goes wrong!
    • Tip #4 for Dealing with Stage Fright
      ENTHUSIASM
      ·Enthusiasm is
      contagious
      ·Animation is key
      ·If you are enjoying
      yourself, so will they!
    • Tip #5 for Dealing with Stage Fright
      BE THE EXPERT
      Remember that it is YOUR topic, YOUR opinion, and YOUR research. So unless you come out and tell your audience that you do not know, they will assume you are the EXPERT
    • Tip #6 for Dealing with Stage Fright
      PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE
      Experience reduces fear, so sometimes you just have to GO FOR IT!
    • Why is this important?
      A study was done of the top 10 reasons why an employer hires an employee. Here are the results of a study …
    • 10. You have the education
      9. You have a solid resume
      8. You have prior work experience
      7. Poise
      6. Appearance
      5. You possess the technical skills
      4. You have solid writing skills
      3. You are enthusiastic
      2. You have good listening skills
    • And reason #1 for why employers hire someone…
      GOOD ORAL COMMUNICATION!
      There are 650,000 words in the English language. 77% of middle management and 93% of CEO’s have a problem with Oral communication. Are you ready to be their voice?
