WHAT IS PRESENTATION? It is a way of communicating ideas & information to a group. It carries the speaker’s personality & allows immediate interaction.
A GOOD PRESENTATION HAS: CONTENT: Information that is to be given to the audience. PACKAGING: It must be well prepared. HUMAN ELEMENT: Presenter should make it interesting so that it can be remembered.
STRUCTURE: Presentation has to be well structured i.e it should have a proper start, body and conclusion so that it can be easily followed by the audience.
START \ INTRODUCTION Follow this pattern: Always start by greeting people. Introduce yourself Use any Hadith, Ayah or any relevent incident to grab audience’s attention.
Use the words: ‘lets begin’, ‘can we start’ Introduce the topic Give aims and objectives of the presentation.
BODY Your body of presentation should be as follows: Content should be limited. It should be interesting Your ideas should be linked and not written randomly Example should be cited. Summarize the important points.
CONCLUSION Should be as follows: Inform the audience that you are about to close. Say something that will be remembered and is interesting Answer the questions.
VOICE It is the most valuable tool of a presenter. Volume: you should be heard without shouting, Lower your volume to draw attention and raise it to make a point.
Pitch: Your pitch should not be too high or low. Pace: Avoid talking too fast or too slow. Color: Use your emotions while presenting.
WHAT IS BODY LANGUAGE?: Communicating through non- verbal aclions like gestures, etc postures is body language.
Positive body language Maintain eye contact with audience. Always smile Stand straight but not too relaxed Move to indicate the change of focus Use pen to indicate a part Move forward to emphasize.
Negative body language Failure to make eye contact. Looking at notes\ screen all the time. Staring into people’s eyes. Back turned to audience.
NERVES Tension and fear can ruin a presentation. Make dua\ nafal before presenting. Tension can be reduced by adopting following exercises. Before the presentation visualize the room, audience and yourself giving presentation.
During presentation take a moment to yourself by getting a drink of water, take a deep breadth and say to yourself ‘ I can do it!’ Keep in mind that even best presenters make mistakes.
ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS Always keep time at the end of presentation for questions. When a question is asked repeat it so that everyone can hear it and in the mean time prepare your answer in your mind.
While answering, direct your answers to entire audience and not to the one who asked. Answer should not be longer then 10-40 seconds. If you do not know the answer be honest.
GOLDEN RULES FOR PRESENTATION Font size should be visible Use capital letters, bold face and underlining to highlight. Have the slides ready in order Test the visual to see if people at back can see it.
Stand at the side of screen facing audience Do not read directly from slides. Do not wave pointer in air. Do not lean on podium for long periods Circulate in the room as you speak.
Vary your techniques ( lecture, debate, disscussion) Use 7 lines on each slide and each line should have 7 words.
