How to give a presentation

  1. 1. PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING TIPS FOR BECOMING A BETTER SPEAKER These are the key takeaways from a coaching session I did with a client. I believe you’ll find them useful:I recommend rehearsing your presentation at least three different times:1. Rehearse your presentation at normal speed as though you were speakingin front of an audience. Record yourself speaking so you can come back towatch the video and analyze your performance.2. Rehearse your presentation speaking at 3 times the normal speed. Rushthrough your presentation super quickly...3. Rehearse your presentation at half the speed you normally speak...slowdown your pace...These three techniques will help you internalize your presentation.Other takeaways:
  2. 2. 1. Go through your diagrams systematically. Refer to each part of thediagram verbally or with a pointer.2. Use animations to build each part of the diagram systematically3. Make sure what youre saying and whats being shown on the slide iscongruent. If you need, insert a couple of slides so that the visual matchesthe verbal4. Practice your delivery - be conscious of your pauses, your pace and yourvocal variety. Emphasize and pause before certain words to add more impactto them5. On the last slide, make the diagram bigger and change the color of eachquadrant individually6. Give examples, examples, examples. Dont be abstract. Focus on beingspecific by working through examples. See if you can work through anexample on each slide where you have a diagram. It will make your pointsclearer and memorable.7. Create a compelling conclusion. In your conclusion, highlight the THREEmain points from your presentation. Then, use the one-line that is thekeytakeaway message of your summary. Next, build their pain by focusingon the consequences of not working together. Finally, end on a positive noteby highlighting the benefits of working together.
