  • 1. PRESENTATION SKILLS Presented by: Maam Lumanglas DENR-HRDS, 21 and 25 January 2008
  • 2. The 3 things you must know
    • Use visual aids where you can
    • Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse
    • The audience will only remember three messages
  • 3. 1. Use Visual Aids
    • One of the most powerful things that you can do to your presentation is to add in visual aids
    • Research shows that if you use visual aids you are twice as likely to achieve your objectives
  • 4. 1. Use Visual Aids
    • Ditch the bullet points - use pictures instead
    USE VISUAL AIDS IN YOUR NEXT PRESENTATION!
  • 5. Why should we use visual aids?
    • a. How we take in information during a presentation
      • Professor Albert Mehrabian did a lot of research into how we take in information during a presentation
  • 6. Why should we use visual aids?
      • He concluded that 55% of the information we take in is visual and only 7% is text
      • In a speech you are only using 38% of the communication medium
  • 7. Why should we use visual aids? USE VISUAL AIDS Whenever You can!
  • 8.
    • b. Making the presentation memorable
      • In a Study at the Wharton Research Centre they showed that using visual slides had a dramatic effect on message retention
      • The effect of using visuals is truly astonishing!
    Why should we use visual aids?
  • 9.
    • A picture is worth a thousand words…
    Why should we use visual aids?
  • 10.  
  • 11.
    • c. Achieving your objectives
      • The best piece of advice I can give you to double your chances of achieving your objectives in a presentation:
    Why should we use visual aids? USE VISUAL IMAGES!
  • 12.
    • Study by Decker Communications:
      • By using visuals in your presentation you could expect roughly to double the chance of achieving your objectives
    Why should we use visual aids?
  • 13. 1. Use Visual Aids
    • So hopefully by now you got the message loud and clear:
    USE VISUAL aids IN YOUR NEXT PRESENTATION!
  • 14. 2. Rehearsal
    • We see no end of people who spend hours pouring over their bullet points but fail to rehearse properly for the presentation
      • "If you fail to prepare, you are prepared to fail“
      • Rehearse your presentation and it will get better
  • 15. 2. Rehearsal
    • Rehearsing can be a bit of a drag, and it’s easy to forget
    • Not rehearsing is probably the most common mistake of all presentations
    • Imagine a contestant singing a Regine Velasquez song without rehearsing!
    • Rehearsing could make the difference between a good and an average presentation
    Rehearse and you will get better
  • 16. 3. The Rule of Three
    • This is one of the oldest of all the presentation techniques - known since the time of Aristotle
    • People tend to remember lists of three things -- structure your presentation around threes and it will become more memorable
    The Rule of Three: We remember three things
  • 17. 3. The Rule of Three
    • Odds are that people will only remember three things from your presentation
      • What will they be?
  • 18. 3. The Rule of Three
    • a. The audience are likely to remember only three things from your presentation
      • Plan in advance what these will be
      • Before you start writing your presentation, plan what your three key messages will be
      • Then structure the main part of your presentation around these three key themes and look at how they could be better illustrated
  • 19. 3. The Rule of Three
    • b. There are three parts to your presentation:
    • Beginning – Middle – End
      • Start to plan out what you will do in these three parts
      • The beginning is ideal for an attention grabber or for an ice breaker
      • The end is great to wrap things up or to end with a grand finale
  • 20. 3. The Rule of Three
    • c. Use lists of three wherever you can in your presentation
      • Lists of three have been used from early times up to the present day
      • They are particularly used by politicians and advertisers who know the value of using the rule of three to sell their ideas
        • EXAMPLES…
  • 21. 3. The Rule of Three
    • Veni, Vidi, Vici (I came, I saw, I conquered) - Julius Caesar
    • " Friends, Romans, Countrymen lend me your ears" - William Shakespeare
  • 22. 3. The Rule of Three
    • "Our priorities are Education, Education, Education " - Tony Blair
  • 23. 3. The Rule of Three
    • Public safety announcement:
    • Stop,
    • Look
    • and Listen
  • 24. 3. The Rule of Three
    • Winston Churchill's famous Blood, Sweat and Tears speech
      • He is widely attributed as saying I can promise you nothing but blood sweat and tears
      • What he actually said was "I can promise you Blood, Sweat, Toil and Tears “
      • Because of the rule of three we simply remember it as blood sweat and tears
  • 25. 3. The Rule of Three
    • In presentations, less is more
      • If you have four points to get across -- cut one out
        • They won't remember it anyway
  • 26. Three Presentation Essentials
    • Use visual aids where you can
    • Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse
    • The audience will only remember three messages
