Presentation Mechanics | 24 Steps to Creating the Perfect Presentation

Perfect Cruise Ship Presentations

Perfect Cruise Ship Presentations

Fiddling it is called.

When a speaker is not comfortable on stage because s/he is not used to the format they are given you s/he will fiddle.

Nervous twits. Stuttering. Fumbling. Phrases like – ‘usually, I …’ or ‘this is not what I was expecting …’ or ‘At my last talk I … ‘

A good cruise ship speaker will be comfortable with a hand mic, a roving mic, a standing mic.

A good speaker will be comfortable with a clicker or without.

A good speaker will be comfortable with LCD monitors on either side, overhead or all over the place. Or with one big screen behind.

A good speaker will be comfortable with a stage that is 4-5 steps wide or 40-50 steps wide. And will know how to make use of either.

A good speaker will be comfortable with no stage and find themselves on the same level as their audience.

A good speaker will be comfortable using their own pc or supplying their slides via a flash drive and working off of the venue’s pc.

A good speaker will be comfortable when some or all of their presentation mechanics fail them and they just have to talk.

A good speaker will be comfortable no matter the venue they are in … or at least they will be game to make the most of any situation.

Anybody can do a good, make that a great job, when all the ‘stars are aligned’ = when everything works just the way it is supposed to.

But a great speaker can do an amazing job when nothing works right and they still don’t miss a beat.
