Going From a Blank Page To an Engaging Presentation

Going from a completely blank page to an attention-grabbing presentation can be daunting task for your employees.

The good news is that they don’t need to just sit there and stare at the monitor, trying to work it out any themselves.

By taking the right course, your staff will go through some of the best time-tested strategies to get through this process while letting them explore their potential (and still having fun learning!). This is easy as you can choose a customized program that will benefit to their professional growth.

One can have the best presentation with convincing facts but the art of sending the message (to hook the audience and master the delivery) is equally important, if not more important.

  • Improving Aspects of Communication Skills:

Sometimes the main reason the audience doesn’t get the right message lies with the presenter’s ability or lack of ability to communicate it. There are always communication elements that can be improved.

Here are some of the materials to help your employees prepare (we just can’t wait to share).

  • Generating and Delivering Ideas Effectively:

It is normal to have a blank mind on what to write for a presentation. Share the topic with your trainer and the other participants and come up with different angles to approach the topic as a team.

Besides learning to structure a presentation, organizing the details, and open a presentation, there are two important things to be discussed in the beginning:

  • Getting the audience’s attention
  • Dealing with nervousness

Whether the target is to give a report or to convert sales, practising nonverbal cues is a great step:

  • Body Language
  • Voice Usage

For example, how many facial gestures should I show? Do I need to walk around and use my hands? Is eye contact important? How do I project my voice?

Another essential part is the ability to present to an English-speaking audience. Culture-wise, what are the dos and don’ts? What are some cultural values that need to be considered? How to avoid misunderstandings?

Fortunately, with tips from experienced trainers (and if you’re lucky enough, native trainers), the amount of time to research culture differences can be minimized.

  • Choosing a Lasting Message to Conclude:

Different audiences and goals will require different ways to summarize a presentation. General tips include the following: be concise, deliver a clear call-to-action message, be consistent with the target message, and choose the right words to make an impression that will last. But all types of presentations will need thorough planning for its ending:

  • What to conclude
  • Strategies for a good conclusion
  • Phrases for effective conclusion

Additionally, a presentation usually involves a Question and Answer session in the end, which can be challenging.
