    • 2. Read more about it • stevebuttry.wordpress.com • slideshare.net/stevebuttry • @stevebuttry • stephenbuttry@gmail.com
    • 3. Introductions • Name • Job • How long in ACES? • Speaking, teaching experience
    • 4. Consider purpose, audience • Skills (ACES workshop) • Knowledge (prospective ACES members) • Inspiration (ACES keynote) • Fun (a little in any presentation) • Persuasion (fund-raising, recruiting)
    • 5. Consider audience • What brought this audience together (common experience or interest)? • What does the audience already know? • What does the audience want/need from you? • What do you want from the audience? • Are you preaching to the choir?
    • 6. Preparing your presentation • What do you want to achieve? • What are your points? • Write (at least an outline, possibly a handout, blog post, slides, script) • Collect examples, anecdotes • Consider scope (think big, think small)
    • 7. More prep • What’s the setting? (Check it out physically) • Test connection, projection, sound • Make some notes (slides may be notes) • Rehearse • Prepare yourself (good night’s sleep, restroom, water handy, mic position)
    • 8. Grab their attention What works best for this presentation? • Personal connection/introduction • Get right to the point • Provocative question • Tease • Involve audience • Media (if it works w/o context)
    • 9. Reinforce your points People learn (& retain) multiple ways: • Hear (you say it) • Read (slides, handout, blog) • Write (they take notes) • Do (exercise, assignment)
    • 10. Delivery • Speak clearly • Choose strong words • Eye contact • Gesture with purpose • Repeat important points (“I have a dream …”) • Smile
    • 11. Critique yourself • Do you need to speak up or slow down? • Are you fidgeting or playing with something (pen, keys, water bottle)? • Are you swaying? • Are you speaking into your notes? • Are you reading your slides? • Be careful w/ foul language
    • 12. Reinforce points visually • Slides (don’t make them distracting)
    • 13. Reinforce points visually • Slides (don’t make them distracting) • Online examples (grab screenshots or make sure they’re live) • Flip charts, marker boards (write legibly) • Video • Props • Costumes
    • 14. Involve participants • Introductions (relate the participants to the topic) • Questions (restate, respond, review) • Positive feedback • “Volleyball” if you don’t know • Get back to the topic • Stop filibusters
    • 15. Use examples • Your own experience (be careful w/ war stories; self-deprecating humor helps) • Invite participants’ examples • Third-person examples • Show examples on screen or handout
    • 16. Use media • Videos (illustrations, exercises) • Music (live or recorded) • Make it relevant (either in content or in the point you deliver) • Consider the length • Changes pace & voice
    • 17. Exercises drive home points • Short writing or editing exercises • Pairs or small groups – discussion or exercise • Role playing • Competition • Rewards • Homework: Focus on the future
    • 18. Webinar tips • Lots of web services • Cheaper than travel but less effective • Test connection, software & sound • Visuals are more important • Mute callers when not interacting • Shorter is better • Direct interaction
    • 19. Leave them thinking • Watch time (better to cut content & end strong than to rush your ending) • Summarize • Deliver on tease (if you teased) • Q&A (maybe before close) • Drama or media • Call for action: What should they do?
    • 20. And don’t forget … Thank your participants!
    • 21. Follow-up • Give them contact information • Set timetable for call to action: next week, tomorrow, etc. • Handout, blog post, resources • Email reminder about call to action • Phone call (time-consuming) • Follow-up survey
