  1. 1. First 3 NLP Techniques to Improve your next Presentation! Part 1/3 Adjusted for SlideShare Simple Actionable Repeatable
  2. 2. The # 1 Predictor for success in business and upward potential 'How much you enjoy public speaking and how effective you are at it' - Study Stanford University & AT&T -
  3. 3. “In case of doubt, leave it out!” Until you have  3 Topics  3 Messages  3 Examples Your presentation will be easier to  Deliver  Follow  Remember 1. Use the Rule of Three Order, & Chunk your content!
  4. 4. The ‘Rule of Three’ is powerful, tested and effective and is being used in presentations in politics, business and education (and in jokes, fairytales and cartoons) to launch products, ideas and initiatives 1. Use the Rule of Three
  5. 5. That is why… will consist of:  3 slide decks  with each 3 techniques  supported by 3 examples 1. Use the Rule of Three
  6. 6. To feel safe! Feeling safe is a basic need for the Old Brain. Just like food, water and shelter 2. The #1 need of your audience?
  7. 7. That is why you need to appear confident (and not nervous) 2. The #1 need of your audience: To feel safe 3 tips 1. Stand still during the first 2 min. 2. Inhale, exhale and pause 3. No excuses, None!  “I had no time to prepare”  “Excuse me, this is not my slide”  “Sorry for this unclear visual”
  8. 8. That is why you need to ‘answer’ these 3 questions asap  Who are you?  What do you do?  Why are you there? Example  “My name is ...”  “I support customers, prospects, partners with ...” Unless you are a CEO, dentist or teacher (etc), try to prevent using your jobtitle. Just describe your audience what it is you are doing  “Today you will see, hear, learn ...” 2. The #1 need of your audience: To feel safe
  9. 9. That is why you need to mention the time how long your presentation will last, while showing the agenda slide So they know when they are able to  Have a drink, bite or smoke  Visit the toilet  Reply to their customer, colleague or partner 2. The #1 need of your audience: To feel safe
  10. 10. To not look foolish in front of their peers, colleagues or manager 3. The #1 fear of your audience?
  11. 11. So don’t ask your audience: “What do you want to learn or improve?” Now, in front of their peers, colleagues or managers they have to tell you what they are not good at. Not a good feeling 3. The #1 fear of your audience: To not look foolish
  12. 12. It’s better to ask them: “What have you seen elsewhere, which you really liked, admired or found interesting?” You probably get the same results from your audience and they don’t look foolish! 3. The #1 fear of your audience: To not look foolish
  13. 13. So don’t open up for questions with: “Are there any questions?” 3. The #1 fear of your audience: To not look foolish This implies your presentation was ‘perfect’ and they can’t have any questions unless they were not paying attention or are less smart then the rest of your audience So, how to do this better?
  14. 14. That is why you use ‘What’ to open up for questions with: “You have seen topic X. What are your questions regarding X?” 3. The #1 fear of your audience: To not look foolish This implies that you understand and expect there to be questions for this new/difficult topic X They can feel safe to ask a question without having the idea that they are the only one not understanding X
  15. 15. So don’t start your answer with: “I have explained that before, haven’t I?” or “As I said before ...” or “As I mentioned earlier ...” Implying your audience is not smart enough to understand it the first time Don’t treat them like back in highschool Do use the opportunity to repeat an important message 3. The #1 fear of your audience: To not look foolish
  16. 16. Take Action Now! Now YOU can take 3 actions: 1.
