Delivering a Presentation

Delivering a Presentation

1. There is no one “right” way to create/deliver a presentation.

2. You know more than your audience.

3. There are “need to knows,” and there are “nice to knows.” Focus on the “need to knows.”

4. Making a presentation is an art, not a science.

5. The best presentations are those you are passionate about.

5 characteristics of an effective presentation:

# RElavant target contents

# Dynamic delivery

# Coherent organisation

# Staying within the time limits

# Adapting to audience.

* Effective presentation starts with effective planning:

1. Know your purpose.
2. Know your audience and its needs.
3. Know your subject.
4. Craft your presentation.
5. Choose your audiovisuals.
6. Practice, practice…and then practice some more.

Four methods of delivery:

1. Impromptu
-- No notes, no preparation

2. Reading from a Manuscript
-- Presentation is written out word for word

3. Reciting from Memory
-- Memorizing whole speech

4. Extemporaneous: practicing enough that you need minimal notes, allowing you to sound and look natural, conversational
