Here's our 5 Top Tips for delivering a great presentation. For more in depth training on giving presentations we offer a Presentation Skills Training Course.
1) Tailor Your Presentation Around Your Audience
It is for the audience that you are giving your presentation, so make sure that your presentation is suited to the type of audience you are speaking to. For instance if the audience will be largely made up novices or people who will not know a lot about your chosen subject then it is up to you to inform them and make sure that it is easily understandable. Similarly you will want to skip the basics if your audience are already well accustomed with the information at hand.
A telephone presentation is unique in many ways and many people will never have the need to give one. However if the situation occurs when you have to give a telephone presentation then you will be glad to have been prepared.
Preparing a Telephone Presentation:
One of the fundamentals of a telephone presentation is to be prepared for the worst. For instance if the connection was bad or there was some kind of interference it is a good idea to have the person’s telephone’s number at hand in case the line goes dead as it won’t look good if you are unable to phone them back.
Some find this added dimension to be more relaxing, as they can no longer see their audience. However in this climate your choice of words and voice tone become imperative. It is still important to prepare as usual, and to have some form of cards or notes at the ready for guidance to help you not lose track.
