The presentation is the game of hardly 20 odd minutes. You got this time to show what you exist inside, you may be a hero or may be a goat but these 20 mins are what you got to justify yourself. For some people out there, giving a presentation might be plain-selling but many others are unfamiliar in this section. Nowadays anybody at any time may be asked to deliver a 5 mins session in front of the audience and for that, you must be prepared. The following points will show you how.
Before you begin. Dress smartly, don’t let your appearance distract from what you are saying. Also, smile and have an upright posture. Try to appear confident and enthusiastic. If you are comfortable inside, at the first glance itself, your body language will let others know your ability.
At the start. Introduce yourself loud and clear with a hello while throwing a smile. Studies have shown that smiles are infectious; that means that once you smile, it’s hard for everyone else not to smile.Smiling will also help to release the hitch.
Your first few words.Will captivate your audience about the key factors of presentation and your ability to define them as well. The problem here is most people don’t know how to hook up their audience. This is rather a key part because studies say that the average attention span for human beings was eight seconds in 2016. It was twelve seconds in 2000. That means that what you say and how you say it, has a greater importance today than it had yesterday.
Carry on the Tempo. Now after catching attention, your duty is to carry it up to end of your presentation. And this will only happen if you engross them in your stories. You can tell them your experiences to increase their excitement. It is found in a study that, making an emotional connection with audience help presenters to stay in their audience mind for longer. So try to speak with them and inspire them.
Finish it off in Style.Your conclusion is your final impression on your audience. Make it exiting by telling a short story, maybe a personal note. Let the audience know you are ending without any rambles. Hope you getting the point… Basically, the best part of the presentation is the end. You can end it by asking a question or a feedback whichever best suits the occasion.
Things you must avoid.While self-confident posture and flawless delivery are ideal conditions to ensure a successful presentation, there are things you must avoid while doing presentations. For e.g. If you are using slides while giving presentation, don’t read it out word-by-word, your audience is literate enough to read what is seen in front. Similarly, don’t use complicated statistics every now and then which will make them bored. Play it simple. And thirdly, avoid moving about too much. Pacing up and down can unnerve the audience, although some animation is desirable.
