‘Presentation’ can be the most dreaded possible word you could hear in relation to work or a job interview. We all know that public speaking can be a daunting and nerve-wracking experience, and while it’s all well and good to say ‘practice makes perfect’, if you’re too nervous to get up and practice – yes, in front of real live people – how will you deliver the perfect presentation?
Following are some essential tips to help ready yourself in order to deliver the smoothest presentation possible.
Memorise the Presentation: It is absolutely essential that you prepare, and prepare well, for the presentation. This means planning a structure and learning it, so you know throughout which part of the presentation comes next. Not only will this help calm your nerves by knowing you piece by heart, but it will also show to the audience confidence.
Review the Presentation: Double check your presentation to make sure there are no spelling and grammatical errors, and also check how it looks when viewed on a projector as opposed to just your monitor; it is common for the colours to look less saturated when projecting, which means that any mid-tones become harder to distinguish and so harder for the audience to read.
