Here are some tips to be an effective presenter:
- Show interest in your topic and connect with your audience.
- Build your presentation around what you want your audience to get from it.
- Make it easy for your audience to understand and respond.
- Concentrate your presentation on the core message.
- What is the key message (or 3 key points) for your audience to take away?
- Smile and make contact with your audience.
- Smiling and eye contact builds rapport and allows the audience to connect with you and the subject.
- Start strongly.
- It's crucial to capture your audience's attention and hold it.
- Avoid "Death by PowerPoint."
- Tell a story.
- This is a great way to make sure your audience is paying attention and to engage with the content. It's a good idea to start with a story and then have your presentation act like a continuation to that story.
- Use you voice effectively.
- Change your pitch and tone to engage the audience with what you're saying. Speak loudly enough to be heard and capture the audience's attention.
- Your body counts too.
- Gesturing and body language is crucial in your message. Consider open gestures and walk confidently around your stage. Avoid:
- Stiff posture
- Crossed arms
- Rocking back and forth or pacing
- Relax, breath, and enjoy.
