Oral presentation behaviors
Presentation flows + logical progression
Don’t jump from point to point without
stating the purpose or providing supporting data for each
: introduce yourself + explain your topic and objectives, highlighting the key points to be addressed
Keep bullet points and lists to a minimum – consider providing a handout with this kind of data.
Maintain good eye contact
Choose a point towards the audience to look
Don't necessary to look at particular person
Audible clear voice
Practice public speaking
Remember to speak slower (tend to rush when worry)
Practice with timer
In practice, finish 1 mins sooner than planned time => Time for unexpected sistuation
Maintain audiences' attention
Interact more with audiences: Asking questions, eye contact, get audiences to involved in the presentation.
Prepare more materials: videos, pictures, graphs
Try not to rely on the slides
Appropriate visual aids
Correct and appropriated references
Stay Consistent, Consider Culture, Compress Data
Keep it Simple: Each visual should focus on one idea or concept. When using text with a visual, keep the text to a minimum
Using presentation stick, if there is a graph/gif => interact and explain the graph
Avoid too much Hand gesture, Consider using gestures to emphasise a point
Monitor audience’s body language: Postive or negative
Confident & authoritative presence
Warming up your body a little before a presentation can help clear out those nerves.
Warm up your wrists by doing a few wrist rolls as if you’re conducting a symphony. This can help any hand gestures look more natural and fluid.
