Top 3 tips for Effective Business Presentations
Course Code : PR10
1. Planning - Careful planning of your presentation will ensure that you reduce your nervousness, give you extra confidence and guarantee a successful outcome.
Think carefully about what you want to achieve; What are your objectives for giving the presentation? What are the outcomes you want? Who will be the audience and what influence do they have on making the decisions to guarantee those outcomes?
Plan logically - even before you commence creating presentation slides. Start planning by using bullet points for the information items on paper and then expand your ideas using a memory mapping technique. After that order your points logically so they flow into a story - but unlike a story book they should be very clear and unambiguous. Structure these points into the main body. Then work backwards to creat your introduction. When that is done you can work on your conclusion.
2, Connecting with your audience on a human level - Business presentations and public speeches are not a one way process unlike a movie. Interacting with your audience will ensure that they are more connected with you at a human level
The best presenters in the world can connect and engage with their audience to ensure their interest in your message and that you are fulfilling their vision of what they expect.
3. Practice Makes Perfect - Practicing your presentation delivery sufficiently is essential for success. Practice will reduce your fear and build confidence.
The best way to do this is face to face (or online through video conferencing systems lie Zoom or Skype) with a professional Presentation Skills Trainer who will be able to give you instant feedback on your performance and teach you the public speaking techniques that you need to improve your delivery.
Most multinational companies these days use English for their language of communication, so if your native language isn’t English it is important that you rectify, improve and learn correct English pronunciation. An experienced native English speaking Presentation Skills Teacher / trainer will be able to help you with this aspect of business communication as well. Coaching in the correct use of intonation is also required to ensure that you can stress the important points correctly.
Taking a Presentation Skills Course is perhaps the best investment anyone in business can make these days as effective public speaking skills are needed even more as you progress up the career ladder to senior management.
