Depending on who you are, delivering a presentation could either be a wonderful thing or an absolute nightmare! Whatever your position is in business, the chances are that at some point you will have to deliver a presentation to either colleagues, clients, or complete strangers, and it is intimidating! But never fear!
Here are some important tips to get yourself presenting like a pro and get your company that contract, deliver that PowerPoint presentation or just give a great speech.
Understand The Sacrifice Of The Audience
Your audience, whoever they are, have dedicated time to sit in front of you when they could be working or catching up with friends. So think about what the audience has given up in order to be sat in front of you. Making sure that you are sufficiently prepared is essential so that you are worth their time.
There Is Nothing Wrong With A Bit Of Tech
If you need to be dynamic in your presentation and you feel you do not have what it takes, don’t be afraid to be entertaining and give your presentation a bit of edge using graphics or music or footage on a big screen to give your presentation a bit of energy and passion. It will help! And making sure that you have all the equipment ready and tested beforehand will save you some stress so you can focus on your presentation. If you are a new business looking for the right equipment such as a lectern, they can be found for decent prices online at places like Lectern Australia.
Learn How To Work The Room
Depending on what the presentation is, there are arguments for and against “working the room,” and unless you’re delivering a presentation that requires uber concentration where you are stating facts and figures for an hour, you can easily move around instead of standing at the center of the stage. Still, the trick is to pick a handful of people that are spread out randomly throughout the room to aim your speech toward. Pick people with friendly faces if it helps so you can continue to go back and focus on them. That way you are talking to those different areas of the room which make you appear more engaging.
