Great presenters are effective communicators. They talk with confidence and build connections with the audience by asking questions and being welcoming to new ideas.
In order to give a persuasive presentation, you need to have an audience-centric approach to presenting. Take the time to think through who your audience is, as this will enable you to tailor your story in a way that resonates with your audience. If your story is fresh and engaging, your audience will listen and remember it. People of all ages love stories and remember them. That’s why stories have been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years.
We’re excited to share with you an amazing (if we can say so ourselves) new resource that we’ve created – The A-Z of Presenting. To give you a taster, we’ve included the first three presentation tips below:
Audience engagement is key
Use a range of strategies to interact with your audience and get everyone involved during the presentation. Consider things like using a live polling system, presenting in a conversational way and starting with a powerful story.
Bullet points won’t engage the audience or be remembered after your talk. Make every point as visual as possible.
Use Contrasting Colours that work well together. Our eyes are attracted to items that stand out in contrast to others. Use this to your advantage when highlighting key points in your talk.
If you’re wondering why bullet points are a big no-no in presentation, watch our dedicated series of Youtube videos on the topic. For all your presenting needs, contact us to arrange a free consultation on firstname.lastname@example.org.
