Being Confident

  • 30 second commercial


Public Speaking and presentations

  • Use the internet (e.g. YouTube) to watch some presentations.

  • Can you identify examples of good and bad practice?

  • Tips for good presentations

  • Things to avoid


Assessment of presentations

  • If you were the assessor, what would you be looking for?

  • Create a peer/self assessment record for the presentation task.

  • Compare this with the exam board assessment record.

    • Anything to add/take out?


Public Speaking

  • Be prepared

  • Appear confident

  • Speak slowly and clearly – avoid ‘ums’ and ‘ahs’.

  • Ensure you emphasise the intended points

    • (Communication Activity)

  • Positive body language


Being prepared

  • Know your P.A.L.

    Purpose: Know what your purpose is in giving your presentation. Is it to inform? To persuade? To entertain?

    Audience: Who is your audience? What age group are they, where do they live, what attitudes do they have?

    Logistics: These are things that have to be organised. You should know how much time you have to speak, what time of day it will be and how the room will be set up

  • Rehearse – over and over again

  • Think about the timing

Delivering Confidently

    • Use your hands to emphasise and reinforce

    • Vary your gestures

    • Nod your head and smile to emphasise what you are saying

    • Make proper eye contact – with everyone in the room


Delivering confidently

  • Don’t repeat what is written on your slides

  • Don’t overload your slides

  • Slow down – pace yourself and punctuate your speech with relevant pauses (try taping/video recording yourself)

  • Prepare for questions that may be asked

  • Be enthusiastic about your topic

  • Use humour and anecdotes if appropriate
