A recent article, 7 Things Successful People Do Before Every Presentation by Larry Alton says that whether you’re presenting in front of large group of business leaders or just a few people you know, the content and delivery of your presentation make an impression that can make or break you.
Here are some preparation tips for successful and impressive presentation.
- Know your audience
- How many people will be in your audience?
- Will they be male or female?
- How old are they?
- What positions do they hold?
- What is their interest in your work?
With all these things in mind, it will help you craft the tone, the position and the direction of your presentation.
- Look at the venue
The venue should correspond to the size and kind of audience you’ll have. Look in advance for appropriate conference rooms for rent or Meeting Rooms for rent that provide complete array of technology and help you shape a successful presentation.
- Outline key points
Outline the key points you want to make during the presentation—this skeletal presentation framework will help you later in the process.
- Make a presentation and not a speech
Your presentation may include prototype, interactive demonstration or a PowerPoint presentation.
Remember that you’re creating the presentation elements, and not a speech–writing a full speech in detail may sound over-rehearsed.
- Practice until you feel confident enough to go live
During your rehearsal, ensure you touch on all the elements of your presentation, not just your speech. Focus on your posture, your body language and your tone.
- Get Feedback then revise
Ask your colleagues, mentors, family and friends to assess your work-in-progress.
This feedback helps you identify flaws you may need to revise and improve.
