Master the three key points to make your presentation great!
Last time we mentioned how to design a presentation to make your presentation more professional and better able to catch the audience’s attention. In this article, we will discuss presentation skills and what are the key points to master in order to get the audience’s attension quickly and willing to absorb the content of your presentation! Let’s take a look at the presentation skills that I’ve compiled for you to share!
Key Point I: The Flow and Logic of Presentations
To deliver a good presentation, the most important presentation skill and foundation is to sort out the “logic and context of the presentation”, which is also a key point that many speakers often overlook.
You need to make your presentation sequence and content have a logical “beginning, ending, transition, and closure” in order to make the audience look forward to the content of your next slideshow.
1. To start the presentation: By introducing yourself or a simple story as the beginning.
2. Commitment: In what situation, or for what reason, I found what kind of pain point…etc
3. Turning Point: What kind of impact and influence these passages may have on the listeners…
4. Conclusion/Make a statement: Stated your point of view, ideas, and proposed solutions or answers are…
This is only some of the most basic sorting logic. Some professional speakers will even add some stories, adjust the sequence of content, Q & A, add data, pictures as a supporting basis, etc… In order to deepen the visual impact, feelings, and feedback of the listeners.
There is no fixed order or absolute right way of presentation. However, in order to grab audience’s attention, the logic needs to be designed to “reduce flare thinking”. Try to get a friend to practice speaking a few times before the presentation, or speak a few more different versions. Those are some very good ways to gather some feedback
Key Point II: Don’t read the exact context on slides
Many people put almost everything want to say directly on the slides so that they will not be afraid of forgetting the content, which is a very wrong way to present.
According to research, listeners will focus most of their attention on the presentation. When your presentation contains a lot of words, they will quickly read the content of the presentation by themselves and think and digest it in their minds. At this time, if you continue to read the content, the audience will feel very bored and it will make people feel that it is better to just give out a handout.
Therefore, a good presentation technique is to minimize the use of textual narrative in the presentation content; instead, it is more correct to focus on visualization, visual language, and data, and to explain the content in an interesting and lively way.
Key Point III: Interacting with the audience
It is very important to pay attention to the reactions of the audience and give timely interaction and response. A good speaker must simulate possible problems or unexpected situations and prepare various measures to show that he or she is not in a state of crisis, which is also a very important presentation skill.
Some speakers do not interact much with the audience and often avoid or fail to respond in a timely manner when asked questions, which may affect other people listening to your presentation.
For example, your presentation is to promote one of your products, but when someone on stage suddenly asks a question that you have not thought about before, you may avoid the question or answer with little confidence, then other listeners will also quickly notice (listeners are very sensitive!).
If you can’t answer the question or amplify the question you can’t answer, that’s not the result you want.
Therefore, when preparing your presentation, you can think about the questions your audience may ask, the more the better, and simulate the best way to respond to them at the moment.
Sometimes it is good that the audience is willing to give interaction, and it can also increase your experience in responding on the spot; on the contrary, if the audience is silent and there is no interaction, that is the most worrying!
Therefore, we suggest you to prepare some settings to open up the interaction before the presentation (preparation for the presentation), such as prize quizzes, jokes to open people’s hearts, etc. These are all good ways.
