Polish Your Presentation Skills

Polish Your Presentation Skills

Everyone has to give a presentation at
some point during his professional life and whenever the time comes, it
grips one with fear, apprehension and anxiety. Some people cannot get
rid of this fear even after giving presentations many times. Some of us
give average presentations, some below average and some are so good that
their presentation skills become exemplary.

The fact is that with a little practice,
patience and hard work, you too can improve your presentation skills
considerably. If you are properly prepared and know what you have to do,
you will feel little or no anxiety when giving your next presentation.
The skills needed to give a good presentation are very basic but most
people are unaware of their importance.

We have compiled a list of some golden
rules that will help you in improving your presentation skills
considerably and open the doors of a successful career for you. Even if
you have not had the chance to deliver a presentation as yet, you should
be prepared in advance as there is no knowing when you might be asked
to give a presentation. If you are unprepared you might panic and fail
to do a good job.

Golden Rules For A Great Presentation:

These tried and tested rules will ensure that you are able to give a smooth and impressive presentation.

Be Prepared:

For giving a good preparation you need
to be well-prepared and organized. Know what material you have to
include in the presentation and what should be excluded. Moreover you
need to organize all the available information in such a manner that it
has a smooth flow and easily understandable by the audience.

Use Visual Aid:

If you want to create a lasting impact
on the audience and wish for them to retain more information, avoid
bulleting and replace with images instead. Researchers have indicated
that using images and visual aid has a much better effect on the
audience rather than plain text.


In order to engage you audience in to
the presentation completely you need to personalize with them. You can
relate incidents from your past experiences to explain or elaborate a
certain point in your presentation. Choose something which the audience
can relate to, so that they can connect to your story and understand the
point you are trying to make.

Remain Calm:

Nervousness is something which can be
easily sensed by the audience and if you become too nervous you might
end up sending the entire presentation down the drain. You must be ready
to handle pressure and answer questions that the audience poses at the
end of the presentation.

Work On Your Body Language:

For any presentation or speech, body
language plays an important part in making it successful or a disaster.
Your gestures say a lot about the level of confidence you have in your
presentation. If you are nervous it will be reflected by your gestures
and the audience will fail to connect with you properly. You must
maintain eye contact with the audience and talk to them rather than
staring at the back wall.

Know The Specifics:

You must know what kinds of audience are
you presenting to, what do they expect and what kind of information
they need to understand your presentation better. Get the details and
work on them so that you do not have to face any unpleasant surprise at
the 11th hour.

Be Moderate:

While some people believe that a long
presentation is necessary to make their point and try to extend it for
more than an hour. There are others who believe that a short
presentation is the way to go and do not extend it for a period more
than 15 minutes. The fact is that one should decide on the duration of
the presentation based on the type of audience, the topic of the
presentation and the purpose of the presentation.

It is better to keep the presentation
short, but not too short. You have to be able to make your point clearly
during the time allocated for the presentation. Don’t try to rush too
much information in too little time as this will accomplish nothing and
the audience will have retained very little information.

The Trio Rule:

Many researchers have agreed upon the
fact that most of the people are able to retain three main points in any
presentation. So in order to have the maximum effect on the audience it
is advisable that you concentrate on three main points which can best
explain the purpose and aim of your presentation.
If you break down the presentation into too many small points, it will
fail to have a lasting impact on the audience. It is better to keep the
presentation concise and to the point.

Make A Video

If you are too nervous about the
presentation and there is too much on stake, it is a good idea to video
tape yourself when you are rehearsing the presentation and carefully go
through it. See what mistakes are there and which moves are making your
presentation unimpressive. Work on these deficiencies and you will be
able to give a great presentation.

Know What’s Next

If you have prepared a multimedia
presentation you should be familiar with the content and the order of
appearance of the slides. This way when the slide changes you know what
is appearing next and you can start talking about what you are about to
show. This gives you command over the presentation and enhance the
confidence level.

Familiarize Yourself With The Surroundings:

If possible you should visit the room
where you have to give the presentation and familiarize yourself with
the surroundings. This will boost your confidence and you will feel
comfortable at the time of the presentation.

Bottom Line:

Giving a presentation does not have to
be a difficult and threatening task. If you are well prepared and have
attained the basic skills needed to give a presentation, it will be a
piece of cake. Keep in mind, no matter how good of a presentation you
have put together, there will be no effect if you fail to give the
presentation properly.
