Presentation & Speech Writing
Delivering a presentation could be sometimes a daunting experience. It is the time when your ability to synthesise information in a short and meaningful manner is assessed. Not only is your information gathering essential but your ability to clearly and confidently deliver your findings and recommendations. A-Mentor can help with your presentation by writing your speech, presentation notes and creating a powerful outline or power point slides.
Planning and writing a script is essential to the successful delivery of a speech or presentation. Unless you are fantastic at ad-libbing, you need to make sure you at least outline your presentation points and meticulously plan your segues before even attempting to compile slides. Your script needs to follow a good storytelling norms: having an introduction, middle, and a conclusion. Your presentation needs to have a metanarrative – that is, an overall point and logical chronology to the story.
Having slides to support your speech or presentation is important. Your audience will read every slide as soon as it is displayed. It is important that that whatever you’re talking about is supported by what is on your slide – never ahead, never behind. At the end of the day, your job as presenter is to control the flow of information so that everyone is on the same page.
Your presentation needs to be interactive. Open with something surprising, exclusive or interesting, and carefully plant in some other interesting titbits so that you keep your audience hooked. That’s a great way to keep people interested in what you’re saying – and in what they can say to you (some people just love to show off). It’s all about engaging your audience and making them feel included. You can even build an atmosphere in the room by asking a question and letting your audience stew in silence for a few short moments before you stun them with a surprising answer they didn’t already know.
Whether you are delivering a presentation to a group of colleagues, or a prospective client, it is vital to get it right so that the presentation assists you in getting your message across. A good presentation style is hard to finesse but it is certainly well worth the practice, you do not have to be a ‘natural’ to learn how to deliver impactful presentations.
