HOW TO DO A GOOD PRESENTATION IN PUBLICBy Eduardo Castejn Dones
Tips for your presentationDress smartly: don't let your appearance distract from what you are saying.Smile.Speak clearly,firmly and confidently as this makes you sound in control.Use silenceto emphasise points.Keep within the allotted time
HAVE A STRUCTUREConsider:Who are the audience?What points do I want to get across?How much time have I got?What visual aids are available? Powerpoint projector? flip chart? Don't necessarily use these. Sometimes the best presentations are the most informal.
INTRODUCTIONWelcomethe audience.Say what your presentation will be about:the aims and objectives.The introduction should catch the attention. Perhaps a provocative statement or a humorous anecdote:
Brieflysummariseyour main points.Answer any questions.Thank the audiencefor listening. Look at the audience again,smileand slow down.The end should be on a strong or positive note
