7 Steps for a Good Presentation

You will need to work on your public speaking skills for talking in front of groups large and small. I put together 7 steps and explanations that will help you do better.

Decide what you are going to make the audience change after your presentations. Are you changing how they feel/think? Are you trying to persuade them? Or do you feel you want them to get to know you and what you offer?  Sometimes a presentation is to educate people, so make sure that in addition to getting them to like you, you are able to educate them on your message Keep each section very simple. If you have lots of words/bullets in your slides, or get too wordy over explaining yourself. If you add too much, they will get bored and lose interest. Keep points simple and use your voice, you will be talking a lot and will find a rhythm. Before you presentation, engage the venue members. Talk to who will be doing sounds and lighting. Make friends with them and get them on your side to help you. Practice where you will stand and how they can help you so you can both do a great job. Stand in one spot, do not pace and weave.

How to personalize your presentation style

In creating a list of essential steps for self-improvement, after watching videos provided on YouTube I have created a list which is quite personalized to my presentation style.
