Let’s face it, being an effective presenter isn’t easy. For some, it’s downright terrifying. But speaking is a necessary skill both in school and in real life. Here’s how to become a better speaker. Well, in theory.
Do Use the 10-20-30 Rule
Coined by great the Guy Kawasaki, he says you should have 10 slides per presentation, shouldn’t be over 20 minutes long and nothing smaller than 30 point font. That’s a good place to start.
Do Prepare for the Worst
What do you do if the video you planned to play doesn’t work? Or the projector malfunctions halfway through your presentation? Simple. You keep going.
I’m going to mix things up and throw in a poll today.
Imagine confetti being thrown in the air right about…now.
So because I trust your judgement more than I do mine, I want to know which of the below you would be most interested in reading about.
I know the ideas are random and different from what I normally write about. The article in question won’t be posted on this blog, but on another site. If all goes as planned, I’ll include the link to the article once it’s published so you can marvel at my blogging endeavors (more like horrendous blogging attempts).
Like I said, I trust your judgement and I respect your opinions. It should be obvious by now that I’m the worst at making decisions, which is why I am asking you to decide for me.
I’m leaving a part of my life in your hands. What you choose to do with my life is not up to me.
