Preparatory Stage Learn / know your audience (Whom you are going to talk?) Set aim Lay parameter / boundaries of presentation
Pre-Presentation Preparation You should have sufficient knowledge about the topic (Well informed) Decide your Point of view (Either in favour or against) Collect ideas, facts and figures, quotations etc. on the topic Never read from a script instead have cue cards
Rough Draft Fair Draft Rehearsal Rehearse your presentation – to yourself at first and then in front of some colleagues.
MAKING THE PRESENTATION Greet the audience ( for example, 'Good morning, ladies and gentlemen' ), and introduce yourself to them. Tell the audience what you are going to speak about.
HOW CAN YOU ATTRACT AUDIENCE?
SOME DOS Dress appropriately for the occasion Use positive body language Balance your body on both legs Keep hands out of the pocket Keep eye contact with the audience Keep a smiling face Change pace / delivery, but not too
Keep the presentation short by focusing on the information Try to Make the start and end touchy Look cool, calm and feel easy Be clear and audible ( Neither shout nor whisper ) Deliberately pause at key points – emphasizing the importance of a particular point Use sense of humour
Some DONTS Dont lean against the wall Dont stick to dais Dont bend a lot Dont cross your arms behind your back Dont repeat the things Dont rush or talk deliberately slowly ( Be natural ) Dont joke – always disastrous unless you are a natural expert Try to end it with quotation
SET UP Go to the class/meeting room early Check out seating arrangement / sound / visual system Sit on the chair of audience to check out so that the audience may not have any problem
Murphys Law If anything can go wrong, it can be any time/ any stage, especially at the last moment (So be ready). If it happens, relax and collect your thoughts again.
ALWAYS REMEMBER! The more prepared you are, the less worried and more effective you will be.
At the end have QUESTION & ANSWERS SESSION Listen to the questions attentively and patiently Dont let the question seeker down Dont be offensive Provide facts and logics rather than your opinion
REMEMBER! You are better than no one and no one is better than you.
