How to Project Authority at Presentations

TalkShop presentation skills tipsWith time, workers get jaded with the work routine. There are many deadwood, half-dead types in the workplace. They come unprepared for meetings. Presentations turn out half-baked, with no prior preparations carried out. Some turn out a so-so performance.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO advises, “Take advantage of meetings and conferences. While many may cower with fear of stage fright, the tension is natural and can be channeled positively. Take advantage of meetings and conferences for you to shine. She shares the following tips:

1. Come prepared. Do your research and prepare all materials needed. Make it compelling in terms of your form (your image, voice, words, delivery) and substance (message).

2. Ask yourself about the objectives, then craft your speech. Organize thoughts carefully.

3. Own the room. Stand like a champion. Do not fidget. Make eye contact.

4. Use your voice. Pace yourself slowly, project your voice mid-range, and use inflection.

5. Tailor your message to the audience and purpose.

6. Have pre-planned spontaneity that you can inject into your presentation.

7. Stick to your message and beliefs.

Speak clearly, if you speak at all; carve every word before you let it fall.” -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
