10 AUDIENCE RAPPORT Say hi. Say bye. Earn their trust. Keep their trust.

11 ORGANIZATION Share your organization; transitions…; Introduction…Rationale…Results…Summary sub-summary slides mark sections, define logic, crystallize ideas; have a clear ending…Thank you…

12 ORGANIZATIONAL AIDS Their thoughts stray during a 45 minute talk. They need repetition both to remember things… …and to crystallize & integrate new information. They need to trust a speaker to learn. Facts about people :

13 FLOW OF IDEAS Make what you want the audience to know OBVIOUS from the start of the talk - tell them the punch line first. Remind the audience of where you have been, where you are going and why often enough that they follow your train of thought. Remember to…

14 WHY CRYSTALLIZE IDEAS? Cements concepts and integrates data. Gives the chance for folks who drifted off or were drawing a cartoon to catch up. Relieves stress of folks who didnt get it. Allows folks with different learning styles or from different backgrounds to see where you are going.

15 CRYSTALLIZING IDEAS Simple slides help the audience: Hypothesis If…then,…; logic We reasoned that…; titles that are informative; sub-summary; overall summary. You know the work better than anyone!

16 STYLE… Jokes… Sunsets… Backgrounds… Font… Colors… Show and tell… Bullets… Transitions… Movies… Animation. Depends on the audience you are addressing. Depends on your comfort zone & personality.

24 WHY SHOULD I CARE? Be enthusiastic Be present (Puzzled?…) Be interactive (violate borders)

25 AUDIENCE RAPPORT Establish rapport with body language; keep it with a loud, clear voice… ; … and open body language; keep eye contact with audience, give them space to think; match the depth/breadth of the information to their needs. Interact at many levels:

26 THE RELATIVE VALUE OF WAYS OF COMMUNICATING What is the relative impact of your body language, your tone and your words? On the next slide you will see the answers so get your guesses in mind and then go to slide show mode. Again, do take the time to look at the URLs.
