A RELAXED AUDIENCE LISTENS – AND LEARNS – BETTER Remember the role of humor. Avoid what could offend. Utilize a variety of approaches. Don’t be afraid to make fun of yourself. No presenter knows everything about all topics. Be aware of your biases. Others will be.
PREPARATION HINTS Run the program by your “editor.” Practice speaking and using the equipment. Remember “Murphy’s Law.” (If the equipment can break, not be present, etc., it will break, be missing…. Be prepared to make do with what you have (which might just be YOU). Organize your space: (podium, AV equipment, chairs for participants, etc)
Beginnings and Endings Try to welcome and greet attendees as they come in. Start on time Attempt to include participants as much as possible (depends on venue, program, etc.) Offer opportunity, if possible, for comments. Invite critique – written or verbal. Thank participants. Be genuine. End on time.
TRY TO BE OPEN Pray, center yourself, etc. before the presentation. Remember God is always present. Be aware that this encounter never occurred before and the Spirit can act in spite of us. Give thanks when done – to God, to those present, to yourself for surviving.
