Most of the companies demand for presenting the knowledge in a different way which makes the product interesting to deal with. So here we are to provide the FIVE GOLDEN RULES to enhance and learn presentation skills.
Don’t be nervous; stop chewing your nails and read further to leave the best impression of your presentation.
The First Rule says don’t let the audience sleep at any point of time. The matter of your presentation should be so strong that makes a grip to the attention of your people. Not only the climax, the beginning and end should also take the breath away. Your Voice is the heart of your presentation; make the best use of it as it is the key of a good speaker. The Best use of pitch, body language, facial expressions and gestures adds spice to it. Eleanor Roosevelt said “No one can make you feel inferior, unless you agree with it.” So feel a hero in yourself and you are the conqueror of the world. Always check the reactions of your audiences who have given you their ear and modulate with them.
The Second Rule can lead you to world of dominance. “I came, I saw, I conquered” well said by Julius Caesar. When you are presenting the data you have to be the full sovereign of it and your people will follow you. You are the one who sets the environment of the room. This powerful position not only makes you to rule your territory but also gives you the responsibility to take care of your people. Listen and understand the queries and lead them to the path of clarity.
Third Rule is easy to understand but difficult to follow. It says you are not supposed to repeat yourself. Explore your subject and touch the deep shell under the water. Nervousness is the only reason which leads to repetition. We know it’s obvious that you feel self conscious when a crowd is judging you every second. Don’t let your fear overcome you, relax, fight with your nerves, rehearse well and be confident.
Fourth Rule makes you the critic of yourself. Create a check list and work on your loop holes. Ask your mirror, “How am I? The main aim of presentation is to drive people’s attention to the thing which they don’t even want to listen. Express yourself so clearly that actually hits the mind and force your audience to interrogate. When you start hearing questions and confusion that means you are doing a good job.
The Fifth Rule is the golden gate of your presentation. Everything you say should be full of life and excitement, Even if the subject is too serious, your passion should have the strength to make it a flawless job of interaction. The piece of communication should be two way, as give and take. Just keep in mind “The entire world is a stage” William Shakespeare.
