Presentations are a great opportunity. They’re an opportunity to move your work forward and to build your reputation. But only if you have effective presentation skills.
First, I confess, I have no magic bullets. Calming your nerves before a presentation is not about one ‘quick fix’, it’s about getting all the little things right.
A simple, engaging presentation structure is like the air that your audience breaths: invisible, unnoticed and essential.
It will draw them into the content, and they will stay fully focused on what you have to say.
To grab your audience at the start of a presentation you need a presentation hook. It’s called a hook because it should be short and sharp!
Have you ever found yourself in a situation that was important to you, and yet you had limited ability to control the outcome? You need to learn how to influence without authority!
Answering questions can be nerve-racking! Whether it’s in a corridor conversation, during a meeting, or after a presentation, you’re on the spot. It’s an opportunity for you to shine or fall flat on your face.
