3 Analyze Your AudiencePut yourself in the audience's shoes - try to understand your listener's level of understandingAnticipate what they want to know. Once you know what your audience wants, you can figure out how to "sell" the benefits of your topic to them.
4 Set Your Goal and Keep It Before You Four main goals:To informTo request for an actionTo persuadeTo build a relationship
5 Set Your Goal and Keep It Before You Let your listeners know what you want them to do near the beginning of your talk and again at the end.Present your basic idea and give them an outline of your presentation that would lead you and your audience to the desired result.
6 Do Your HomeworkResearch your topic – speak about something you have earned the right to talk about: through experience or study.Organize the materialKeep it clear and focusedAnticipate questions, and make sure you have the facts to answer them.
7 Do Your HomeworkSeize every opportunity to practice – no professional in any field performs without practicing. Remember, your time in front of a group is your showcase.Discuss your presentation with friends & facultyRehearse several times if possible, in front of someone you know is critical
8 Confidence is the Key Believe in yourself : “I can do it”! That's the main secret of being a good presenter: you have to be confident to show confidence.Explore all phases of your subjectCareful preparation provides the solid ground you need to support your self-confidence.Become more qualified than any member of the audience to give this talk
9 Plan the Parts of Your Presentation List all points you plan to cover.Group them in sections and put your list of sections in the order that best achieves your objectives.Begin with the most important topics.When you put your talk together, keep in mind why your audience would want to hear what you have to say.Encourage questions

11 Making a Powerful First Impression The audience will make decisions about you from your first appearance, your words and the sound of your voice.Plan your opening sentences and practice them in front of a mirror.Use short sentences.Keep technical information at a minimum.Maintain eye contact with all the audience
12 Grab attention, raise curiosity, get the audience looking and listening to you, with: A dramatic pictureA provocative questionA jokeAn interesting factA short anecdoteA quotation / positive statement
13 Promise to tell the audience how they can get something they want. People have very short attention span. To keep your audience with you, you must build in new devices – make your message visual, build anticipation, create a conversation cycle, use role-play practices – to keep your listener's mind 100% occupied.
14 The sound of your voice makes a great difference Practice projecting enthusiasm.People aren't going to be influenced by a lifeless & monotonous voice.To hear yourself speak, record your voice during a phone conversation or practice your presentation using a tape recorder. Then make necessary changes
