  • 9. Lets fix it up with a quick look at mistakes to avoid in a presentation
  • 10. Um, Er, Ugh… No idea what to say? Mistake 1: You just don’t know your topic
  • 11. Or you memorized every bit of it And now spewing it all out Blah, Blah, Blah…
  • 12. ESSENTIAL TIP: Be FAMILIAR with the TOPIC, Don’t memorize
  • 13. Memorizing will lead to dressing your turkey with ice cream toppings. Knowing it all well ^ _ ^ Presenting it all wrong!!
  • 14. Or Questions will leave you “THUNDERSTRUCK!!!”
  • 15. ESSENTIAL TIP: Dig in deep. Be ready. Face the questions with answers.
  • 16. Mistake 2: Your slides are at fault Is it too exotic to be true? This happens when you’ve mismatched your story and the topic.
  • 17. ESSENTIAL TIP: Stick to your main point. Prepare your story slides the way they match with your topic.
  • 18. Are you offering INFORMATION OVERLOAD?? Each slide looks like – A 500 pages long fiction Or A 1000 pages long user manual
  • 19. Don’t overburden your slides with Information. Stick to one message per slide Don’t OVERFILL your slides
  • 20. Give information in smaller chunks. Don’t Add Details…Details…Details…
  • 21. Your presentation also has a verbal part, if you’ll fit in all the information on the slides, there’s be no more any need to speak. Your slides are your visual aids not the whole show.
  • 22. Keep words simple, sentences uncomplicated. Avoid bigger paragraphs, use bullets.
  • 23. Don’t force your audience to take ASPRIN Is reading your fonts a stressful exercise for eyes?
  • 24. Don’t create a modern art with your font typeface. Keep them STRAIGHTFORWARD
  • 25. Your fonts aren’t super models. Don’t size them “ZERO FIGURE” Don’t make them “ILLEGIBLE”
  • 26. Presentation is not the place to play with colors. Don’t ELECTRIFY your audience with gaudy colors. Keep them sober, serene, soothing.
  • 27. Mistake 3: You don’t carry yourself well. What kind of presenter you are? Cool, Boring Or Professional
  • 28. Don’t present in a hurry, you’re missing your flight, are you? If you’ve to board the next flight, better leave the presentation for someone else.
  • 29. Deliver. Don’t Rush. Don’t make waves for your audience. Speaking super fast may skip out the core message from reaching your audience.
  • 30. ESSENTIAL TIP: Maintain a pace, practice before the actual presentation. Record your voice and listen how fast you speak.
  • 31. Do you inspire your audience to fall asleep? Are you too slow?
  • 32. Does it ever happen that when you start telling a thing, it has already appeared on the slides? This will surely make people fall asleep!
  • 33. ESSENTIAL TIP: Be clear with what to speak. Make a mental picture. This will help you speak with power and authority.
  • 34. What is your style? A Slouch Supermodel Business Executive
  • 35. Neither be a slouch nor a model. Being executive is a better option. But, trying to be a speaker at the first is the best. If you’ll be slouch, nobody will pay attention to you. If you’re a super-model Type, you’ll be a show stealer, but you’ll steal the effect of your message too.
  • 36. ESSENTIAL TIPS: 1. Dress right, speak bright. 2. Avoid sluggish clothes, voguish hair style, jingling jewelry, and unprofessional get up. 3. Take a shower, dress right, look elegant. Make sure your audience focus on your message and not on you.
