Improve your presentation physiology

We have all sat through presentations where we have disengaged from the presentation.  Looking around a room at wall art or scribbling on a notepad.  Was this your fault or an issue with the presenter?  

So often we see presenters showing signs of nerves whilst presenting. Looking down at their feet rather than the audience in front of them.

Well at The Presenters Handbook we aim to improve the physiology of presenters. The question is do some of the areas mentioned in this video ring true?

If you need support in improving your own physiology whilst presenting, contact us at The Presenter's Handbook. Visit our website and whilst there answer a few questions to get instant feedback on your presentation ability.

Preparing for a presentation

With an estimated 30 million slides being created every day, there is a lot of presenting going on out there: To help you make sure that yours ‘hit the spot’ in terms of engaging your audience and getting your key points and concepts across as effective as possible. We nice people at The Presenter’s Handbook have compiled the top 5 aspects of preparing for a presentation.

  1. Start early because it always takes longer than you think.
  2. To focus your mind, write one clear sentence describing the presentation and its importance.
  3. Collect material which may relate to the topic. Audiences love to receive information they didn’t know.
  4. Design your presentation to be a story that follows a logical sequence.
  5. Stick to the story: If a slide doesn’t fit, lose it!
For further tips on preparing for a presentation contact The Presenter's Handbook via our website.  

In addition find out how good a presenter you are by taking our online questionnaire.
