I was preparing a presentation on Presentation Flaws and was searching online for content when i came across an article on it by George Torok, The Speech Coach.

I used Smart Art to just make it a visual presentation from the text document.

I liked the flow of the content. It was Crisp. The content is totally sourced from George Torok\'s article from

Presentation Flaws

  1. 1. A Shravan Shetty Presentation with content from a article by George Torok, the speech coach<br />PresentationFlaws<br />Why should you care about your presentation skills? <br />
  2. 2. Because poor presentations cost… your career.<br />There are no perfect presentations and no perfect presenters. <br />That means that every presenter could be better – if they want to .<br />There are three types of presenters <br />
  3. 3. Effective presentations are the result of good presentation skills in action.<br />Skills are improved by understanding the principles, practicing the techniques and getting constructive feedback from a skilled coach. <br />Tiger Woods follows this formula to stay ahead. <br />
  4. 4. Have you ever wondered why some presentations are so painful to sit through and others can be delightful? <br />
  5. 5. Here are some of the presentation flaws that We ’ve witnessed <br />Lecturing instead of conversing<br />Inappropriate language<br />Clumsy start<br /> Limp close<br /> Reading the slides<br />Lack of eye contact<br />Nervous signs<br />Annoying slides<br />
  6. 6. RECAP<br />
  7. 7. Why are so many presenters so inconsiderate when it comes to designing their slides?<br />Annoying slides“You probably can’t read this.”<br /> Yet the presenter showed the slide anyways.<br />Your slides either enhance or annoy. <br />Are you clear on the difference? <br />Technology is only valuable if it aids the human experience. <br />
  8. 8. Lack of eye contactIf you won’t look at me – <br />Why should I listen or believe you? <br />Limp closeThe next most important impression is the last one because that is How your audience will tend to remember you. <br />You need a prepared and well-rehearsed closing line that reinforces your message. <br />Nervous ticksIt’s perfectly normal to feel nervous while presenting.<br />If your audience sees it they will question your capability.<br />Stop the shuffling feet, touching your hair and Playing with paper or pens. <br />
  9. 9. Inappropriate languageThe words you use convey a lot about you, your values and how you see your audience. “You guys” is not appropriate a frame of reference. <br />Reading the slides The presenter reads the slides,<br /> word for word as if we are too stupid to read them ourselves. <br />
  10. 10. When was the last time you bought something from anyone lecturing at you?<br />Lecturing instead of conversingConversations sell – lectures don’t. Make your presentations more conversational and you will sell more. <br />
  11. 11. Want to do better in your Life and Your Career ?<br />
  12. 12. Ponder thisHow much did you prepare to get the opportunity to deliver your presentation to your superiors or directly to your prospects?<br /> Why not improve your odds of success? <br />How much are you willing to invest on your presentation skills to improve your success rate? <br />There are no perfect presentations and no perfect presenters. <br />
  13. 13. That means that…..<br />YOU can be a BETTER <br />PRESENTER <br />If <br />YOU<br />Want to BE<br />
