  • Stevens Business Plan Builder for Technology-based Start-ups © 2011Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved Welcome to Effective Oral Presentations. The next module in your Entrepreneurship 101 course. Transition: The objectives of this module…
  • In order to accomplish this, I have prepared 3 modules…
  • Stevens Business Plan Builder for Technology-based Start-ups © 2011Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved Before we begin…take a look at this video on what not to do as a presenter…

  • As you watched the video, you may have wondered about your own presentation style, and how you… Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • Perhaps you would like to appear… Transition: These modules were designed to give you the fundamental skills to enable you to be an effective presenter. Let’s begin with the 1st module.
  • Stevens Business Plan Builder for Technology-based Start-ups © 2011Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved
  • Verbal communication skills are about… T: Let’s break this down…
  • 1. Speak loud enough so that people don’t have to strain to understand you. 1-10. Voice projection is necessary and it takes effort. Don’t fade out - energize yourself. 2. According to the dictionary, articulation is “The power of speech…divided into clear and distinct words.” Pronounce all syllables and vowels, and articulate and energize your consonants. Consonants carry the strength of the word – don’t drop them. 3. In some cases, when you want to master a second language, consider an accent reduction class. University/online 4. Avoid filler words… Transition: What are they…
  • Habitual. Instead of filling the gaps between thoughts with these garbage words, pause and breathe instead. What seems like an eternity is only a couple seconds. How breathe. Pausing allows your audience to interpret your message, and it enables you to be speak more expressively…
  • Pause between thoughts. Don’t forget to breathe. Attempt to maintain a moderate pace, but know when to slow down, speed up…and stop talking. Inflection is the rise and fall of your voice. Avoid monotone or flat voice. Attempt to add emphasis to key words and phrases. They give you a reason to sound and look animated as you speak. Transition: For example…
  • In Summary…
  • 1. Speak loud enough so that people do not have to strain to hear you. Voice projection takes effort. 2. Speak clearly and effectively. Consider an accent modification course if applicable. 3. Avoid cluttering your speech with filler words. Pause instead. 4. Use inflection to emphasize key points. 5. Pause and breathe between thoughts. Transition: In addition to verbal skills, there are also non verbal communication skills…

  • T: How do you maintain eye contact when presenting?
  • Clear Remember to smile. T: In addition to good eye contact, effective hand gestures are also an important non verbal skill.
  • T: Effective HG also…
  • Why…what about how… Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • T: Now let’s talk about movement. Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • Movements to avoid… Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • To sum it up, when practicing your presentation skills… Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • Clear To create a balanced stance, place you feet hip-width apart and facing forward. This will allow you to release your nervous energy productively through your hands and your voice. Attempt to give one thought to one pair of eyes. Increase your volume to a 7-8 level. Pause and breathe deeply from your diaphragm. Gives you a wider range for inflection so you don’t sound monotone. You will be heard…and you’ll sound more interesting. Use gestures to describe and emphasize key words and phrases. Gesture with your hands above your waist and away from your body. When you’re not using your hands, let them relax at your sides. Please stand and try out the following examples with me…
  • This slide builds. First the title appears. Clear it and talk about guidelines for gesturing – the usual stuff you say. I tell them to start building a vocabulary of gestures they can call on to bring their ideas to life. Have them stand. Click and the first bullet appears. Have them say the sentence aloud and use gestures. That…now – Talk about the range of oppositional gestures, with one hand and then the other, or with both hands: now or later, it’s this or it’s that, it’s this and it’s that, we tried this and now we’re trying something new, we started with this and now we’re adding that. Have them try it again. Increase – Talk about the different ways people showed the increase – sudden, gradual, step by step – left hand, right hand, both hands. Which one is the right one? They all are when they describe the concept you’re trying to communicate. Have them do it again and try a different gesture. Maybe a third time with another choice Global solution – Talk about the different ways they showed this concept. Have them try it again and make the globe larger. Next quarter – No coaching. A whole set of gestures that involve timelines – off to the left, off to the right, right now in the center – traveling along that timeline. Have them say it again and play with the timeline horizontally. T: Lastly, NVC also requires a professional image…
  • Although…acceptable to dress casually as students in the classroom… Live in a multi cultural society with different religions, customs & way of life. (Unity, loyalty & respect for the elderly.) Strive to maintain face & harmonious relationships. T: Effective NVC… : Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.

  • As you begin to build your presentation, write down a one sentence desired outcome. When you can articulate your outcome clearly, you have taken the first step toward a well-organized presentation. For example: If your desired outcome is for every UKM student to have an Apple IPad, all your details should logically move toward this desired outcome. T: Keep in mind your audience…
  • Classmates vs. Apple executives Consider the different key audience factors for each. For example, “seniority” could be an audience factor for presenting to Apple executives. In this case you might put the conclusion/recommendation right up front. T: It is not about everything you know, but rather what the audience needs to know…(hose picture)
  • Don’t drown your audience in too much information. Keep asking yourself: Do they really need to know this? Speak in short sentences. It forces you to be more concise. T: Now that you know your desired outcome & your audience, let’s discuss talking points. Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • The structure of your presentation includes a flow of ideas that lead the audience, point by point, to your conclusion. Transition: Let me show you a basic presentation outline that will accomplish this. Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • Attempt to open with an attention grabber for impact: Important question or fact/startling statistic/relevant quote/interesting or radical idea Conclude your presentation by summing up the critical points of your presentation, including a call to action (or next steps), that will lead you to your desired outcome. Transition: As you are building your presentation, consider transitional phrases that will connect one idea/slide to the next…as I have just done.
  • Additional handout in class Transition: A final point on organizing your presentation is to consider variety. Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
  • People love to hear personal stories, but only tell one if it fits with your topic. Examples and analogies add spice to your talk. They give you a means to sound and look animated as you talk. Stats and facts substantiate (back up) what you are saying. T: Why are a variety of visuals important?
  • T: In your next class you will be giving your 1st team presentation. Let’s talk about how to present PPt. slides effectively.
  • 1. If reading left to right. 2. Eyes 3. When you have a pie or bar chart, it’s best to give a context before getting into the details. 4. If you don’t go in order, no one will be able to follow you. Sync. 5. Elaborate on the points, don’t just be a reader. If every word you say is on the visual, you add no value to the visual. Provide information on the meaning or context so the visual stays in a supporting role, not a primary role. T: And most of all…
  • In summary…
  • Like Steve Jobs did in this video…
  • Attempt to hone these skills until you own them, beginning with one skill at a time. T: This concludes the module… Stevens Institute of Technology June 2011 © 2011 Stevens Institute of Technology.  All Rights Reserved.
