Presentation: Skills You Need To Present With Confidence

Ritu M.
11/01/2018 0 0

You know the subject. You know the people who will be attending your presentation. You know the setting. You know the rules.

Yet, you freeze when it is show time.

Sounds familiar? Read on for some suggestions to overcome similar situations.

First, let’s get basic pointers out of our way:

1. Content is the King and you have to conquer this king. It means that you have to know your subject. Like really really know it! More than your audience do. Actually, much more than they do.

Why? Because then that gives you an edge over others in the room. It also gives you inner confidence to stand up and be in command. Knowledge is the power. And now you have it. And your audience doesn’t have it. That makes them sit down and listen to you. And that is your goal!

2. Keep it simple. Just focus on the core message. Do not try to cover the whole lot of things in one go or one slide.

3. Smile and keep the eye contact most of the time.

4. Do not read the slides. Remember, your audience can read too. Use slides as the backdrop and focus more on having dialogues with your audience.

5. Use more of numbers, facts, pictures, videos and less of text in your presentations.

Now, here are some suggestions to make it even better and effective:

i. Think like your audience: Why should they listen to you? What is in it for them? Maybe there is something for you but what is for them? Your message should be built around their needs, ease, and understanding. Focus on their reactions and energy in the room during the presentation. Adjust your delivery style accordingly. If you notice audience reaching out for their phones, ask questions or engage them in group discussion. Keep them engaged and interested.

ii. Start and End: We humans are quick to judge. You have few minutes to capture or lose your audience’s attention. If your start is powerful (or funny!) and you take off on a high note, it will give you boost you need for continued momentum.

You want your audience to leave the room with the positive and inspiring message. Hence, concluding your content in a meaningful way is always a good idea.

iii. Body language and voice modulation: If you are not interested and do not show your enthusiasm for your content, no one else will do that either. Hence, it is very important that you are extremely engaged and excited about presenting. You must display this engagement through your positive body language. Also, speak slowly and clearly. Stress on important points and phrases. Stop there to ask questions. The tone, pitch, and your voice is the indicator of your confidence.

Voice modulations don’t always come easy. It needs practice. You can also watch and learn from people you admire and look up to for their fine speaking skills.

There is this and there is more to it. Go for one-on-one coaching for personalized solutions to get rid of social anxiety and improve your game plan.
