Tips that will make your next presentation the best one yet
Have you been asked to make a presentation, and you want to knock it out of the park?
If you have an important presentation coming up, it’s important to be totally prepared. Part of being prepared is refreshing your memory on some really important skills that you’ll want to carry into your presentation to ensure its success.
Here are some tips that will help you make a great presentation that will wow everyone!
See stage fright as positive
I know this sounds a little strange, but it’s a small attitude shift that can really make all the difference for your mindset going into the presentation.
If you have butterflies, it just means you want to do a good job. There is nothing wrong with being nervous! Just don’t allow those nerves to get the best of you.
How do you turn the nerves into something positive?
First, slow your breath. This will help you be present in the moment and focus less on your fear and more on your presentation itself.
Also, go slower than you think you should be going. With stage fright, you often talk faster than you realize, which makes it harder for your audience to stay engaged. So, take breaths not only beforehand, but even as you’re speaking. This positive energy will come through, and you’ll be able to connect better with your audience.
This may seem obvious, but you would be surprised how many people don’t think about this and just wing it.
Some people might actually be good at winging it, but if you have a really important presentation and you really want to knock it out of the park, winging it won’t cut it. It’s always better to be over-prepared than under-prepared for a really important presentation.
Instead, prepare, understand who the audience is, and ensure you understand your subject matter. Give yourself that guidance because it is going to help you tremendously when you’re presenting.
