Whether you’re preparing for the next board meeting, presenting at an industry conference, or preparing for a demo or webinar, presentation skills are a must for any business. However, before you even get to the actual presentation, there are a number practices to keep in mind as you’re developing your content.
Mike Neumeier, principal at Arketi, recently spoke at the PRSA 2013 International Conference in the session, “How to Give a Presentation in Nine Words.” We all know you presentation is dependent on your content and flow, but Mike provides some practical advice including:
- Don’t treat your presentation like a lecture, treat it like a talk
- Research your topic
- Step away from technology
Mike’s overarching theme was that a presentation should be a similar to a conversation; it should be a talk between you and the people in the room. For most of us who aren’t natural presenters this can be tricky, especially when our presentation, or “talk,” involves a room full of strangers or – even more distracting – a virtual audience. His advice: don’t treat your presentation like a lecture, treat it like a talk. Whatever your topic, imagine having a conversation about something important you want to explain to a friend.
Research your topic before starting an outline. You have to know what you’re talking about. Understanding or becoming an expert on your topic or idea before starting your outline is key to developing a compelling presentation.
Once you have your big idea, write it down and refer to it as you work through your outline. Jot down notes to complete your points. Use those points to support your idea.
