Operate Your Presentation like a Pro

In an article for Consultant News, Toastmasters International’s Paul Carroll outlines some basic tips to give a presentation that is actually worth remembering. A good presentation begins with understanding your audience, which means you should study up on them beforehand. From there, develop a clear message that will be of interest to them. Be as concise as you can while still conveying all the essential details; you might be surprised how much information you can actually afford not to give. Along those same lines, if dealing with complicated subjects, use metaphors to simplify the message.

Lastly, when you speak, use active language that inspires (you guessed it) action. If nobody feels a vigorous need to act after your presentation, you may have failed in your aims.
