Presentation mastery got one of the questions I get is what happens if I forget my presentation and I’m halfway through midstream, and I forget everything. How do I look really like? I know what I’m talking about.
How do I make sure that my audience is really engaged? Look: some of these subjects come up all the time around presentations, Dale Carnegie, of course, I’m William farmer from Dale, Carnegie, Australia, Dale Carnegie was fantastic and helped people out.
How would I present themselves how to do it effectively? In fact, he wrote a famous foot. Could the quick and easy way to effective speaking so here are a couple of those techniques from Dale Carnegie’s work, I’d like to share with you today now, if you are planning on doing a presentation and you were planning on memorizing it I’m going to give you A piece of advice: don’t do it, because what happens is you’ll start to really think about your presentation and every word.
If so it moves. The chair stands up to go to the toilet and you lose your place. All of a sudden, all the wind will go out of the sale, so don’t try to memorize your presentation. The other thing is that comes across a little bit artificial.
Now, with the beauty of PowerPoint, you can just flick and then the PowerPoint will come through and it usually reminds us of what the next thing is in our presentation: skills. If you don’t have a lot of PowerPoint slides good onya, because your PowerPoint slides should be there to actually enhance the presenter, not replace the presenter.
How many times have you been a presentation with its been death by PowerPoint? You felt like emailing them and saying just email me the presentation because it was just as effective. So if you are going to trade people’s time, that’s your wage or your salary and everybody else and above 20, 20 people listening.
I always think I want to trade their time with as much value as I possibly can so when you’re presenting your ideas, think about it. What’S the benefit to the people that are in the audience and if you do find yourself in one of those unfortunate events where you have got this full stop, and you don’t know what comes next? Here’S a couple of techniques, here’s the first one! First of all, don’t tell your audience all the time, we’ll lift our eyes show some fear and we’re telling our audience.
We don’t know what comes next, if I’ve been to just do look very wise pause, look, and by that amount of time I’m sure the words will start to flood out. The next thing just speaks because it’s like a segue, it’s like a bridge that connects to the next thought or asks a question of the audience and straight away by asking a question: looked in your hand, there may be someone engaging it stimulates conversation and it helps you to remember what you’re talking about all take your presentation into another direction.
If you are going to use notes, okay, make sure your notes are very, very clear, maybe six words, six words, six lines, no more! Nothing is to make sure it’s easier to see. Don’t hide behind a lectern, because what that does is it creates a barrier between you and your audience, use power points as a prompter.
I could talk about the subject for a long period of time, but that’s probably the key and regards to mastering presentations. There’S remember that you are the message and not PowerPoint and that when you do have that full stop use it to your advantage.
Don’t tell your audience that you don’t know what comes next. So I’m way, if I’m an engagement, specialist hey, how do you give effective presentations?
