presentation.jpgThe Three Golden Rules of presentations are

  1. Stand up
  2. Speak up
  3. Shut up

They may need a little elaboration:

Stand Up

  • Be visible, but do not stand in one place with your hands in your pockets, or even worse: sit behind a desk.
  • Move about. Show that you are in command by occupying and using your area, the stage or the floor space that is yours.

Speak Up

  • Speak in a good, clear voice.
  • Use your voice as an instrument to keep the audience's attention and to underline the most important points in your presentation.
  • Use eye contact to maintain a rapport with the listeners.
  • If appropriate, use humour as a way of creating contact
  • Tackle questions in a positive, friendly way.

Shut Up

  • Know when to stop.
  • Plan your presentation effectively, so that you give the most important information in a way that will be remembered
  • Do not try to say too much - you will either end up spending too much time or drown the audience in a flood of information they will not be able to digest.
  • Do not be afraid to improvise if necessary. If you instinctively feel that the audience is becoming restless or bored, it might be a good idea to skip a couple of points in order to highlight the really important message.

Complete this summary of the main points by choosing the correct alternative (an adjective to describe a noun or pronoun, or an adverb of manner or an adverb of degree)

  1. It is that you feel a little
  2. It is however important that you do not act
  3. Sometimes it may be to improvise.
  4. Improvisation is not a bad thing.
  5. A very point to remember is that you should not speak in a voice.
  6. : you must remember to speak .
