INFORMATIVE
PRESENTATIONS

               Briefings
               Training
           Explanations
BRIEFINGS
• Short talks that give already interested and
  knowledgeable audience members the specific
  information they need to do their jobs.
• Purposes:
   – Some briefings update listeners on what has happened in the past.

   – Others briefings focus on the future.
Characteristics:
  –   Length. Most briefings are short- usually no more than 2-3 minutes
      on a given subject.
  –   Organization. Don’t require the kinds of attention-grabbing
      introductions or conclusions. Organize in a simple way- topically or
      chronologically.
  –   Content. Summarize a position. Most attendees already know why
      they are there.
  –   Presentational aids. Some briefings may include simple visual aids,
      but they rarely contain the kind of detail found in longer and more
      complex presentations.
  –   Language and delivery. Briefing are usually quite conversational.
      Delivery is more matter-of-fact than dramatic.
Training
• Teaches listeners how to do something such as: operate a
      piece of equipment or use software, relate effectively with
      the public, avoid or deal with sexual harassment.
                   Planning a Training Program:

 1.     Define the training goal
        • Training always aims to change the way your audience
          acts, so the place to begin is to identify who you want
          to teach and the results you want to bring about.
Average Retention Rates of Various Training Methods

                          •   An important learning principle,
                              supported by extensive research,
                              is that people learn best when
                              they are actively involved in the
                              learning process.
                          •   The “lower down the cone” you
                              go the more you learn and retain.
2. Develop a schedule and list of resources.
    – After defined goals and identified target audience, you are
        ready to design the training.
    – This steps includes:
      Figuring how much time you will need to plan and publicize
          the training, and the steps you need to take between now
          and the time you deliver it.
      Identifying the staffing and physical resource you need, and
          making sure they are available. Line up the facility, and
          make sure it’s furnishings and layout suit your design.
          Identify the materials participants will need (pens, name
          tags, etc.) and the equipment you will use (computer,
          projection system, etc.).
      Creating/purchasing any necessary materials.
3. Involve the Audience
   – Lecturing to a passive audience has its place, but it isn’t the only
     way to train an audience.
   – Hands-on experience is much better than just told them what to
     do. E.g. train them by teaching them how to operate the
     machines themselves.
   – A variety of other tools involve the audience in a way that
     boosts both understanding and interest: quizzes, contests, and
     having trainees teach one another.
– Letting them practice the skill that have teaching, having
  volunteers demonstrate a skill, and let the whole audience
  or group brainstorm and then let each group report back.
– Listeners likely to understand and remember a message
  when use more than one approach. E.g. show a diagram,
  display photo, bringing the object itself, illustrating a
  process, and play video.
4. Organize your presentation
   – The most reliable format is probably a problem solution
     approach.
   – The listeners are most likely to pay attention to the
     information that provided when they view it as solving a
     problem that they face.


5. Delivering the Training
   – When you finally are ready to deliver the training, several
     tips can help make it most effective.
6. Link the topic to the audience
   – Sometimes the intrinsic interest of the subject is reason
     enough to listen for people to pay close attention to a
     session because they know these benefits are worth
     something to them personally.
   – If the subject that isn’t intrinsically interesting, boosts
     interest by showing that listening will help audience avoid
     punishment.
7. Start with an overall picture
   – Every presentation needs an introduction.

   – A clear preview is really important.

   – Without an overview, listeners can become so confused by
      the informational trees that they won’t be able to see the
      conceptual forest.
   – Orient the audience by sketching the highlights of your
      message.
8. Emphasize the organization of your material
   – You can use a number of devices to help listeners understand the
     structure of your material:
    Number items
    Use sign posts
    Use interjections
    Use repetition and redundancy
    Add internal summaries and previews
9. Cover only necessary information
   – If cover topic in too much detail, you are likely to bore or
     even antagonize your listeners.
   – Just tell the listeners what they need to know, and tell them
     just that much.
   – If they want more information, they will probably ask for it.
Explanations
• Increase listeners’ understanding of a subject.

• For examples:
    An orientation session for new workers;

    A meeting with a new employee benefits package is
     introduced;
    A purchasing policy is explained.
•   2 strategies will help make your ideas easy to follow is:
    –       Avoid Jargon
             Introducing to trainees to specialized terms and language.
             Some jargons is necessary, but don’t use any more than necessary
              – will probably bore them and leave them so confused that they’ll
              give up trying to understand the material you are explaining.
    –       Link the Familiar to the Unfamiliar
             People have the best chance of understanding new material
              when it bears some relationship to information they already
              know.
             Without a familiar reference point, listeners may have trouble
              understanding even a clear definition.

Presentation

  • 1. MAKING AN EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION
  • 2. What is a Presentation?  A presentation is a form of communication with an audience.  The object of a presentation is to transmit information and opinions to an audience in your own words, within a limited amount of time.
  • 3. An effective presentation should:  Who will I be speaking to?  What do I want them to know by the end of my presentation?  How will you make it easy for your audience to understand?  It explains the purpose of presentation  Attract & focus the attention of the audience  It gives a preview of the key points that the presentation will cover.
  • 4. Types of Presentation • Informative :to provide interesting and useful information to increase the knowledge of your audience.(giving information) • Report : to give your audience an account of what you or someone you represent has learnt or done. • Persuasive : to convince your listeners to accept your proposal • Special occasion: to give speech for some special event such as in party, funeral, award, etc.
  • 5. Types of presentation Example Informative Lecturer to student Report Constructor to top management (Construction project) Persuasive Constructor to top management (Construction project) Special occasion Emcee to guests (party)
  • 6. Different types of presentation has:  Different audience  Different purpose  Different skill to present  Different language (tone)
  • 7. INFORMATIVE PRESENTATIONS Briefings Training Explanations
  • 8. BRIEFINGS • Short talks that give already interested and knowledgeable audience members the specific information they need to do their jobs. • Purposes: – Some briefings update listeners on what has happened in the past. – Others briefings focus on the future.
  • 9. Characteristics: – Length. Most briefings are short- usually no more than 2-3 minutes on a given subject. – Organization. Don’t require the kinds of attention-grabbing introductions or conclusions. Organize in a simple way- topically or chronologically. – Content. Summarize a position. Most attendees already know why they are there. – Presentational aids. Some briefings may include simple visual aids, but they rarely contain the kind of detail found in longer and more complex presentations. – Language and delivery. Briefing are usually quite conversational. Delivery is more matter-of-fact than dramatic.
  • 10. Training • Teaches listeners how to do something such as: operate a piece of equipment or use software, relate effectively with the public, avoid or deal with sexual harassment. Planning a Training Program: 1. Define the training goal • Training always aims to change the way your audience acts, so the place to begin is to identify who you want to teach and the results you want to bring about.
  • 11. Average Retention Rates of Various Training Methods • An important learning principle, supported by extensive research, is that people learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process. • The “lower down the cone” you go the more you learn and retain.
  • 12. 2. Develop a schedule and list of resources. – After defined goals and identified target audience, you are ready to design the training. – This steps includes:  Figuring how much time you will need to plan and publicize the training, and the steps you need to take between now and the time you deliver it.  Identifying the staffing and physical resource you need, and making sure they are available. Line up the facility, and make sure it’s furnishings and layout suit your design. Identify the materials participants will need (pens, name tags, etc.) and the equipment you will use (computer, projection system, etc.).  Creating/purchasing any necessary materials.
  • 13. 3. Involve the Audience – Lecturing to a passive audience has its place, but it isn’t the only way to train an audience. – Hands-on experience is much better than just told them what to do. E.g. train them by teaching them how to operate the machines themselves. – A variety of other tools involve the audience in a way that boosts both understanding and interest: quizzes, contests, and having trainees teach one another.
  • 14. – Letting them practice the skill that have teaching, having volunteers demonstrate a skill, and let the whole audience or group brainstorm and then let each group report back. – Listeners likely to understand and remember a message when use more than one approach. E.g. show a diagram, display photo, bringing the object itself, illustrating a process, and play video.
  • 15. 4. Organize your presentation – The most reliable format is probably a problem solution approach. – The listeners are most likely to pay attention to the information that provided when they view it as solving a problem that they face. 5. Delivering the Training – When you finally are ready to deliver the training, several tips can help make it most effective.
  • 16. 6. Link the topic to the audience – Sometimes the intrinsic interest of the subject is reason enough to listen for people to pay close attention to a session because they know these benefits are worth something to them personally. – If the subject that isn’t intrinsically interesting, boosts interest by showing that listening will help audience avoid punishment.
  • 17. 7. Start with an overall picture – Every presentation needs an introduction. – A clear preview is really important. – Without an overview, listeners can become so confused by the informational trees that they won’t be able to see the conceptual forest. – Orient the audience by sketching the highlights of your message.
  • 18. 8. Emphasize the organization of your material – You can use a number of devices to help listeners understand the structure of your material:  Number items  Use sign posts  Use interjections  Use repetition and redundancy  Add internal summaries and previews
  • 19. 9. Cover only necessary information – If cover topic in too much detail, you are likely to bore or even antagonize your listeners. – Just tell the listeners what they need to know, and tell them just that much. – If they want more information, they will probably ask for it.
  • 20. Explanations • Increase listeners’ understanding of a subject. • For examples:  An orientation session for new workers;  A meeting with a new employee benefits package is introduced;  A purchasing policy is explained.
  • 21. 2 strategies will help make your ideas easy to follow is: – Avoid Jargon  Introducing to trainees to specialized terms and language.  Some jargons is necessary, but don’t use any more than necessary – will probably bore them and leave them so confused that they’ll give up trying to understand the material you are explaining. – Link the Familiar to the Unfamiliar  People have the best chance of understanding new material when it bears some relationship to information they already know.  Without a familiar reference point, listeners may have trouble understanding even a clear definition.
