  • 3. Visual Aids
    Visual aids are essential tools that will allow you to captivate your audience.
    Visual aids will not only enhance your presentation, but also help you to remember key points and keep you and your audience focused.
    Visual aids will support your argument and increase the audience’s understanding of the main points. This is because the mind better remembers picture information rather than word information.
    A visual presentation willenhance your credibility and it may even help you with your nerves.
  • 4. Types of Visual Aids

    • 6. Charts: compare ideas or explain main points.
    • 7. Transparencies: highlight key words, ideas, or graphics.

  • Tips For Preparing Your Visual Aids
    Bigger is better. Be sure your visual aids can be seen by the people in the back row.
    Keep the wording simple.
    Make your visual aids eye-catching. Colorful and attractive designs are the key.
    Do not allow the visual aid to become your speech. In other words, don’t use your visual aid as a crutch.
  • 10. Body Language
    Your movements, facial expressions, and gestures have as much meaning as your words.
    Using Body Language:
    Keep your shoulders back but stay relaxed. If you look at ease, your audience can concentrate on your presentation.
    Breathe deeplyand give yourself a moment to think about what you will say.
    Be yourself and let your facial expressions reflect what you’re saying. Artificial expressions and gestures will distract your listeners.
    Use simple hand gestures, such as pointing to a visual aid, to add emphasis and interest.
  • 11. Using Your Voice
    The way that you use your voice can add to the meaning of your words.
    The three most import characteristics of your speaking voice are volume, tone, and speed.

    Preparation is the key. The more often you rehearse your speech, the more relaxed you will be.
    • Take a deep breath.
    Arrange your notes. Look around before you begin. Don’t rush into your speech.
    • Focus
    Concentrate on what you are doing and on what comes next. Visualize the steps in your presentation.
