Delivering Great Presentations

Delivering Great Presentations
Ever been to a really bad presentation? You know, the kind where the speaker stands behind the podium, uses slides that mirror what he is saying directly, and includes lots of data tables to validate his position.

But. “What’s so bad about that?” you ask. “Isn’t that how most presentations are given?” Yes. That is how most presentations are delivered, but that doesn’t mean that’s the most effective way to deliver them. This kind of presentation risks boring your audience to the point where they start wishing for a fire alarm to go off so they can escape. And once you lose someone, it is next to impossible to bring his or her attention back.
If the information you are presenting is important enough for you to deliver orally, then it demands an appropriate amount of planning and preparation so that the information you present is memorable – for the right reasons. Give a bad presentation and you’ll be remembered all right: It just won’t be the type of impression you want to leave in anyone’s mind.
When someone presents well, it sends the message that the person is capable, confident, intelligent, and competent. These people get noticed and that type of attention bodes well for your career. Even if you don’t make formal presentations in your current position, think about the future and keep in mind that you do have to present your ideas and opinions on a daily basis.

Your Speech Is About Them

Before you begin to craft your message, consider who the message is intended for.

This will help you determine your choice of words, level of information, organization pattern, and motivational statement.

The goal as a Speaker you must go on the platform is knowing, if just one person walked away with Something to keep them thinking, congratulations to you for helping that one person succeed 🤗

Nervousness Is Normal, Practice and Prepare. Know your homework 🤗

Nervousness Is Normal, Practice and Prepare
All people feel some physiological reactions like pounding hearts and trembling hands.

Do not associate these feelings with the sense that you will perform poorly or make a fool of yourself.

Some nerves are good. The adrenaline rush that makes you sweat also makes you more alert and ready to give your best performance.

The best way to overcome anxiety is to prepare, prepare, and prepare some more. Take the time to go over your notes several times.

Once you have become comfortable with the material, practice—a lot. Videotape yourself, or get a friend to critique your performance.

SECRET remember that this is not about you. Not personal. Isn’t that easy. Ok

Key Points To Remeber Chances are that you’ll sometimes have to speak in public as part of your role.

Key Points To Remeber
Chances are that you’ll sometimes have to speak in public as part of your role. While this can seem intimidating, the benefits of being able to speak well outweigh any perceived fears. To become a better speaker, use the following strategies:

Plan appropriately.
Practice.
Engage with your audience.
Pay attention to body language.
Think positively.
Cope with your nerves.
Watch recordings of your speeches.

If you speak well in public, it can help you get a job or promotion, raise awareness for your team or organization, and educate others. The more you push yourself to speak in front of others, the better you’ll become, and the more confidence you’ll have.

Cope With Nerves How often have you listened to or watched a speaker who really messed up? Chances are, the answer is “not very often.”

Cope With Nerves
How often have you listened to or watched a speaker who really messed up? Chances are, the answer is “not very often.”

When we have to speak in front of others, we can envision terrible things happening. We imagine forgetting every point we want to make, passing out from our nervousness, or doing so horribly that we’ll lose our job. But those things almost never come to pass! We build them up in our minds and end up more nervous than we need to be.

Many people cite speaking to an audience as their biggest fear, and a fear of failure is often at the root of this. Public speaking can lead your “fight or flight” response to kick in: adrenaline courses through your bloodstream, your heart rate increases, you sweat, and your breath becomes fast and shallow.

Although these symptoms can be annoying or even debilitating, the Inverted-U Model shows that a certain amount of pressure enhances performance. By changing your mindset, you can use nervous energy to your advantage.

First, make an effort to stop thinking about yourself, your nervousness, and your fear. Instead, focus on your audience: what you’re saying is “about them.” Remember that you’re trying to help or educate them in some way, and your message is more important than your fear. Concentrate on the audience’s wants and needs, instead of your own.

If time allows, use deep breathing exercises to slow your heart rate and give your body the oxygen it needs to perform. This is especially important right before you speak. Take deep breaths from your belly, hold each one for several seconds, and let it out slowly.

Crowds are more intimidating than individuals, so think of your speech as a conversation that you’re having with one person. Although your audience may be 100 people, focus on one friendly face at a time, and talk to that person as if he or she is the only one in the room.

If you’re unaware of it, your body language will give your audience constant, subtle clues about your inner state. Asking to themselves is this real? It was my intention to be honest and keep it simple. Don’t be anybody except you. Folk are not fooled with deception 🤗

Positive thinking can make a huge difference to the success of your communication, because it helps you feel more confident.

ENGAGE WITH THE AUDIENCE

Admit you will follow up with you question by leaving the email so they will be able to have the information they OBVIOUSLY need

And congratulate your AUDIENCE member for asking you that Interesting Question. 🤗 a win win situation.

The confidence of the Audience will explode with delight.

Congratulations 😁

Positive thinking can make a huge difference to the success of your communication, because it helps you feel more confident.
Fear makes it all too easy to slip into a cycle of negative self-talk, especially right before you speak, while self-sabotaging thoughts such as “I’ll never be good at this!” or “I’m going to fall flat on my face!” lower your confidence and increase the chances that you won’t achieve what you’re truly capable of.

Use affirmations and visualization to raise your confidence. This is especially important right before your speech or presentation. Visualize giving a successful presentation, and imagine how you’ll feel once it’s over and when you’ve made a positive difference for others. Use positive affirmations such as “I’m grateful I have the opportunity to help my audience” or “I’m going to do well!”

REMEBER to say thank you

ANGLES CRY TO

Even Angles cry they are sensitive too

Listen to the way they softly whisper

” help me”

Always listen to a whisper

Did you miss me

NO you were always to busy

While the Angles heart was slowly drowning

Wings forlorn falling softly around her body

Did you hear the whisper disappearing home

These are the moments we never capture again
