Esc

11 Whats in the Middle? Tell them about your subject in detail Tell them logically Tell them in a language they understand Use stories and real examples to highlight your points Tell them how this information applies to them Press Esc to end show. Esc

13 Research has shown that people make up their minds what they think about you within the first minute If you accidentally give the wrong impression at first, you will have to work really hard to overcome this Much rests on image, body language, style of dress, tone of voice and initial impact rather than the words you speak.

14 What Do I Do? Stance Expression Eye contact Speed Space Gestures Press Esc to end show. Esc

15 Stance When we are nervous we tend to "guard" ourselves, keeping our upper arms tight against our chest, or hunching our shoulders; this is a perfectly natural thing to do, but it makes us look apologetic. Straighten your back, look the world in the eye, and think tall. Press Esc to end show. Esc

16 Expression Start with a smile but there's no need to smile all the time. A nod or a thoughtful expression will pay far greater dividends than an ever-ready smile. Press Esc to end show. Esc

17 Eye Contact This is one of the most significant indicators of status and competence. Try to keep your eye contact up - people will trust you more, believe you more and know that you are interested in them. But don't stare! Press Esc to end show. Esc

18 Speed If you want to be taken seriously, don't hurry. If you go too fast you'll look as if you're hurrying to catch up, rather than as though you're doing the job competently. If you slow yourself down, you will also give yourself time to think, always useful when time is short. Press Esc to end show. Esc

19 Space The way you handle your personal space tells people a great deal about how you feel about yourself. Feelings of self-consciousness or shyness are shown by small, inward-moving gestures - usually with the palms of the hands hidden. Self-confidence and well-being are characterised by an outgoing body image with expansive, outward-moving, open-handed gestures. Press Esc to end show. Esc

20 Gestures The best way to make a good presentation is to be yourself; if you are not a person who makes a lot of gestures then it is unwise suddenly to start making them in a presentation. Most people are nervous at the start of a presentation, but it is almost guaranteed that after you have been speaking for a few minutes, you will loosen up and look more natural Press Esc to end show.

21 What Not To Do! Presenter mannerisms that irritate most people in an audience include: Lack of eye contact Turning your back on the audience Pointing or stabbing a pointer at an audience Hiding behind the flip chart or screen Fidgeting with a presentation pointer Not being able to find the right slides Standing perfectly still Looking only at a script or prompt cards, not at the audience Press Esc to end show.
