Clip and save–>

Your talks need to be serious, but not heavy.

  • They do not want to be lectured to’ they want to be informed.
  • Tell stories to support you main points. Go with 3 points max.
  • Stories rather than delivering dry facts.
  • Your audience is probably vey educated – don’t talk down to them.
  • You must use visuals….PowerPoint or the like. Do now drone on in a monotone. Variety, pauses.
  • Use images not bullets
  • Put in video clips. 15 – 20 seconds. Use the time to take a drink.
  • Be extemporaneous NO NOTES. Involve the audience.
  • Relax and be a little funny – no canned jokes, but an anecdote where YOU goofed up.
  • Look good – dress for success. First impressions are made in 15 seconds.
  • Don’t be glued to the podium – use a remote slide changer.
  • Use a green laser pointer and don’t wiggle it on the screen – hold it steady.
  • Stand to the left of the screen so you point at the beginning of a thought.
  • Tell them what you are going to say. Say it. Tell them what you told them.
