slide suggestions

presentation suggestions
Presentation Suggestions
  • Language: Do not use words like “you must,” “you should,” “you have to.” Consider this a persuasive rather than a dictatorial presentation.
  • Focus: “We” versus “I” and “You”: State what you will be doing and what the audience will be doing. Be specific. Don’t say “we will do” when that is not the reality of the situation.
  • Team effort: To convey that the change will require a team effort, use team metaphors.
  • For Design, Delivery and Message Coaching

    • Make your messages clear and audience focused

ten delivery tips
Ten Delivery Tips
  • Voice: When you are nervous and your voice is shaky, speak a little louder. The shakiness will diminish or disappear.
  • Eyes: Always start and end each sentence looking at someone.
  • Feet: Point them straight towards the back wall. That way you will look at everyone in the audience.
  • Gestures: Gesture with one or both hands above your waist, not by your thighs.
  • Arm position: Put your arms by your side. Don’t hold your hands in front of you or put your arms behind your back.

Don’t read your slides.

Tell your audience information that is not on the slides.

Ten Delivery Tips
  • Filler words: You won’t say “um” when you pause and breathe between your sentences.
  • Short sentences: Make your sentences short so you can emphasize key words, make your point, and give the audience time to digest the information.
  • Pauses: Pause between your sentences to give your audience time to digest what you say.
  • Movement: Move towards or away from the audience. Don’t stand in the same place the whole time.
  • Facial expressions: Don’t present with a deadpan look on your face. Express yourself!
explain these issues during your talk
Explain These Issues During Your Talk
  • Why this change is necessary and important to the company, department, group and / or person.
  • How this change will benefit you and the audience.
    • Short term, if applicable
    • Long term, if applicable
  • How you and your group are participating in the change with your audience. The motto is, “We are in this together.”
  • Say, “We are doing this because…” and state facts, feelings, and opinions.
    • You want your audience to know why change is happening, not just that it is happening. They will be more open and feel less coerced.
  • Pick a motto, phrase, or metaphor for the change and use it throughout the talk.
  • Make sure your language will bring the audience to you rather than alienating them.
