measuring the success of
      your presentation
Hi, my name is Akash and I’m a presentation skills coach and author of “Public
Speaking Secrets of the Champions”. In this mini eBook,
you will discover the two questions which will help you
determine the effectiveness of your presentation.

How do you measure the success of a
               presentation?
There are two important questions you can ask to measure the success of your
speech.


First question: did you achieve the objective of your presentation?


The goal of a speech is to take audience members from Point A to Point B. It’s to
move them in some sort of way - maybe to move them emotionally and to inspire
them; or to move them intellectually and give them more knowledge and more
tools on a topic. So, if a speaker manages to meet his objective of moving his
audience from Point A to Point B, then it’s a successful speech. Or,as you put it,
it’s a commendable speech.
Second question: Will your audience remember your message 3 days
after you presentation?


Did you know that most presentations are forgotten within a couple of hours? A
successful speaker, however, leaves a lasting impact on his audience. As
speakers, we want to make sure that our impact lasts beyond the day of the
presentation.


For example, let’s say you’re giving a sales presentation. Your objective is to
convince Mr. and Mrs. Jones to buy a car or insurance - or whatever the product
- from your company. Now, no matter how good your presentation, it’s unlikely
that Mr. and Mrs. Jones will enthusiastically hand over their credit card to you
at the end of your presentation. They’re going to need a couple of days to think
about it. What you want is for your presentation to be remembered at the time
when they are making a decision - when they are thinking about whether or not
to buy from you, you want your message, your presentation, to be remembered
and influence their decision to “YES! We’re going to buy from you.”
Same thing applies to interviews. You want the recruiter to remember you so
that when they’re making the decision about who to hire, you pop into their
minds.


So to summarize, the two most important questions any presenter should ask at
the end of a presentation - the questions which determine whether a
presentation was effective or not - are:


  (1)     Did I move my audience emotionally or intellectually from Point A to
     Point B? Did I achieve my objective? and

  (2)     Will they remember my message 3 days after I speak?
