What are three techniques you will use to hold their attention? What presentation technology would work best? What questions might your audience have? How much time do you have?[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=” Develop Content” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”45px” graphic_shape=”badge” graphic_color=”#db5842″ graphic_bg_color=”#4293db” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”check” graphic_animation=”fadeInDown” connector_animation=”fadeIn”]DEVELOP CONTENT: Start with your end outcomes in mind. What are the objectives of your presentation? State your main purpose in one simple sentence. Then, identify 3 to 5 main sub-topics that will help you achieve the overall goals and objectives. Within each of these sub-topics write down what your main teaching points are. How can you grab the audience’s attention with your introduction? Where can you build in humor? How can you illustrate your points using stories, examples, graphics, pictures, or other props? How can you build in opportunities for your audience to practice or apply each of your main topics? How will you transition between topics? What are the key themes that you want to repeat throughout your presentation.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=” Know Your Audience” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”45px” graphic_shape=”badge” graphic_color=”#db5842″ graphic_bg_color=”#4293db” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”check” graphic_animation=”fadeInDown” connector_animation=”fadeIn”]KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE: Many times you will have to adjust the tone, pace, style and even the message for different audiences. If you are giving the same presentation to multiple audiences, always ask yourself how each audience is different. Some differences among audiences include level of education, experience, friendly vs. unfriendly, the time sensitivity of the audience, how much the audience expects to participate, how much entertainment they expect, and whether a logical or emotional argument will work better.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=” Rehearse” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”45px” graphic_shape=”badge” graphic_color=”#db5842″ graphic_bg_color=”#4293db” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”check” graphic_animation=”fadeInDown” connector_animation=”fadeIn”]REHEARSE: It is best is to rehearse in the actual setting of the presentation. Practice in front of a camera, in front of someone who can give you feedback, or in front of a mirror. Focus on time spent per major point—usually 5 to 10 minutes. Did you go into too much detail? Vary your volume and tone— using a consistent volume and tone will lull the audience to sleep. Use body language and vary your facial expression. Use pauses to give people time to think and reflect, and to drive in a point.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=” Keep it Simple” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”45px” graphic_shape=”badge” graphic_color=”#db5842″ graphic_bg_color=”#4293db” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”check” graphic_animation=”fadeInDown” connector_animation=”fadeIn”]KEEP IT SIMPLE: Avoid using big, fancy words that people might not know or that are difficult to comprehend. Use language that it easy to understand and follow. It is much more important that your audience understands you than that they are impressed with your large vocabulary. Avoid using filler words between thoughts like ‘ah’ and ‘uh’, or whatever other filler words you might use in your culture.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=” Use Questions” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”45px” graphic_shape=”badge” graphic_color=”#db5842″ graphic_bg_color=”#4293db” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”check” graphic_animation=”fadeInDown” connector_animation=”fadeIn”]USE QUESTIONS: If possible, ask your audience questions that force them to reflect on what you said, what they think, how they feel, what they understand, how your point has relevance to them, and how they might apply what you said to their lives. if the audience is too large, consider asking them questions that they can write down their answers to and/or discuss their answers with 1-3 other people around them. What are the top 10 most likely questions you anticipate from your audience? How might you respond to each question? Similarly, when possible, allow your audience to ask you questions. This helps you gauge how well your audience is understanding you and where you need to clarify your message to them. You can simply occasionally ask the audience a question such as, ‘What questions do you have?’ Don’t feel like you must have the right answer to every question. It is ok to say ‘I don’t know’ or to ask what other’s may think in response to a difficult question.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=” Scared?” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”45px” graphic_shape=”badge” graphic_color=”#db5842″ graphic_bg_color=”#4293db” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”check” graphic_animation=”fadeInDown” connector_animation=”fadeIn”]SCARED? You’re not alone. Speaking in front of large audiences is one of the most feared activity for adults. Your worst fears won’t really happen. You won’t pass out. You won’t freeze and not be able to continue. You won’t have to go to the bathroom midway through. You may run short of breath. If so, simply stop and breathe deeply. Your mouth may get dry. Drink something. You may forget what you wanted to say. Refer to your notes. You may stumble on a word. Pause and repeat it. A sweat drop may run down your nose. Wipe it off. You may shake. Hold on to the podium. Look at three different people in the audience who are smiling and receptive. Or look just slightly above everyone’s heads – they won’t realize you’re doing it. Avoid looking at people who are frowning or shaking their heads or doing anything else that is distracting to you.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=” Using Slides” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”45px” graphic_shape=”badge” graphic_color=”#db5842″ graphic_bg_color=”#4293db” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”#272727″ graphic_icon=”check” graphic_animation=”fadeInDown” connector_animation=”fadeIn”]USING SLIDES?
