Simple Rules for Effective Presentations

Majority of people can improve their presentations dramatically by focusing on eliminating bad habits and presentation skills more than seeking to add anything on. How often have you come out of a seminar and overheard someone say, "Wow, he/she was great! Did you see how effectively he/she used his/her hand gestures?"

That said, here are some ideas to help you become a better presenter  :-

1. Keep it simple
             -   Speak naturally
             -   Make eye contact
             -   Don't do crazy things with your hands
             -   Don't do much more than speak, i.e. managing props etc.

2. Be impassioned

3. Balance the format of your information

4. Build the relationships beforehand if possible

5. Get the audience to participate at varying levels if effective

6. Show, don't tell. That is, use stories, not facts and figures

7. Get rid of distracting idiosyncrasies

8. Don't misinterpret people's actions and get discouraged

9. Know your material

10. Never, ever, go overtime

Presenting yourself effectively can turn you into a presenter that shall be admired for a long time to come.
