When discussing the thesis or when attending a formal event, it is common practice to keep a small presentation or a speech. Unfortunately, often it is not something fun to listen to! The presentations, in fact, are generally pretty boring and repetitive. So today I will give you some helpful advice to keep an effective presentation, so as not to lull the audience! Let’s talk about How To Make A Presentation.

how to make a presentation

First, you have to decide which software element or technique used in the presentation: PowerPoint, a model, a simple speech etc. The important thing is to choose the one most appropriate to the situation and the subject matter. For example, if you’ll have to write on a surface (the board or a panel), it would be appropriate to prepare a draft of a sheet or trace a pattern on the surface itself. If you are going to create a plastic, I suggest you write a sequence of actions that you will take on a piece of paper. If you want to give a speech perhaps with the aid of a PowerPoint presentation, you will not need to do a graphic draft. Write the speech using the computer so as to control the spelling. Try not to change anything about the first draft: if you are sure of what you did, then you start to write, draw, decorate or shape everything that will be useful for the presentation. Once finished the job, check it again. If you want, you can add or delete items. To work out with the presentation, I recommend you do the “dress rehearsal” before a mirror, beginning with presenting yourself. It ‘a very useful exercise. If you forget a word or phrase and you get stuck, do not be discouraged: take a break and try the same side a few times until you are able to complete it. Remember that during a presentation it is important to speak clearly and concisely, avoiding actions as clear your voice all the time or to repeat ” eehm “or” aah “. The errors of language or pronunciation, they lose points and contribute to annoy listeners.

Helpful Hints

1. Use of images or visual elements, help to understand others that you know exactly what you’re talking. Not to mention that the public will be able to better understand the subject matter.
2. Try not to make a speech too long, unless the subject matter does not deserve this “privilege”. The speech should always be short and “catchy”.
3. Do not be afraid to use a lot of adjectives. Indeed, they are useful in making the speech clearer.
4. Do not put off at the last minute or your work will be approximate. Try to process it little by little, so that you have plenty of time to check back later and remove any imperfections.
5. In a presentation you can also enter a short session of questions and answers at the end of each topic presented. This will help you to better engage the audience and allow you to take a break in the case of very long presentation.
6. Upon exposing your presentation, do not forget if you get stuck a detail or part. Go ahead! Do not think about what you forgot to say or do, because it could jeopardize the entire presentation.

Remember that feeling agitated before exposing the presentation is normal. Or rather, it is human! To be able to control the emotions you will have to try to remember the presentation perfectly everything to say. The more one is prepared, less will be forced to stop and think. Who is sure of himself and what he has done, will have less reason to be nervous.
