Make Your Next Presentation Your Best
By Lance Miller, Toastmasters'
2005 World Champion of Public Speaking
This concept holds true for most things in life, including giving a speech or a presentation. When we see a great comedian, an inspirational speaker, or a well-delivered presentation, we're seeing the final product. We are not seeing all of the preparation that went into that final product.
There is an old saying, "Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of experience comes from bad judgment." I can tell you, "Good speakers come from experience, and a lot of experience comes from giving bad speeches." The thing to keep in mind is that not all of those bad speeches need to be given in front of audiences!
Over the last 15 years, I have coached countless professionals on speaking and presentation basics. The main element these individuals seemed to lack was sufficient practice and drilling techniques. By helping clients learn how to successfully practice their presentations, I was able to help them achieve the results they desired.
Here are some basic tips you can use to enhance your public speaking skills:
1. Practice out loud.
2. Practice giving your speech to something.
3. Drill your speech a specific number of times.
If you make a mistake during the drill, do not stop and correct yourself! Just keep going and correct yourself the next time through. Drill like you will when you deliver your talk. If you make a mistake during your live presentation, you are not going to stop and correct yourself, so donít get in the habit of doing it in practice. This will help you to slide over mistakes if you make them in your live performance.
4. Get someone to coach you.
5. Get in front of an audience.
6. Drill in a space similar to the one where you will be speaking.
7. Videotape yourself.
If you practice your presentation with these 7 tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to becoming a confident and skilled presenter!
