Tips to Improve Giving a Speech
"The human brain is a wonderful organ. It starts working as soon as you are born and doesn't stop until you get up to deliver a speech."
The purpose of any presentation is to get your audience to understand, believe, and act on what you say. Many people are afraid of public speaking. You don't want to just stand there and read from a piece of paper. This post will give you some quick tips to help with public speaking.
The first tip is to really remember the information that you are presenting. When you really remember the information, it builds confidence and you will look like you know what your are talking about. Presentation power is memory power. Take charge and control of your content, because without notes you will look more professional in your delivery. If you don't move an audience, you are not managing your content correctly. Great presenters know that audiences tend to remember the first and last bits of the presentation. Therefore, you want to make your introduction and conclusion powerful and outstanding.
The next tip is to remember the acronym "FLOOR." This acronym represents principles that the audience of a presentation tends to remember.
"F" First things
"L" Last things
"O" Outstanding information
"O" Own links- continually link info to the audience to make it more outstanding
"R" Repeated information- the main points
If you use these principles, then your audience will remember more and this will make your presentation more enjoyable. You want to have a clear structure installed in your head, so that it will be easier to move your audience and this will make you look more confident and will result in you giving a much more powerful presentation. I hope these tips help you the next time you need to give a presentation. Thanks for stopping by.
