The learner can see examples of prepared plans for persuasive, and, informative, presentations There follows an invitation to complete an exercise based upon their preparation for a presentation at an interview. This module also introduces the learner to the value of concise and neat prompt cards.
3. THE INTRO
An essential part of a powerful presentation is an impressive beginning. In this video the learner will find the essential requirements for a good start with an example to emulate.
4. THE SUMMARY
Every presentation needs to be summarised. This video explains what a summary should contain and how it should be delivered.
5. BEHAVIOUR – Powerful Pace
A “normal” conversational voice is unlikely to be suitable for a presentation. This video demonstrates what is required to allow an audience to follow and understand the verbal content. An associated exercise gives the learner the chance to assess and change their presentation pace.
6. BEHAVIOUR – Power Pauses
A short pause can seem like a lifetime in front of an audience. This video encourages the learner to embrace long pauses and appreciate their considerable benefits.
7. BEHAVIOUR – Power Language
This video encourages the learner to be concise. It proposes simple language and the avoidance of too many details. Being submissive, over polite and apologetic are tendencies to be avoided by the powerful speaker.
8. BEHAVIOUR – Beware “Fillers”
“Basically, in reality, erm, actually, well, you know, like and kind of…” are just a few of the many useless “filler” that infect our language. The associated video points out when and why they occur. Work to eliminate them from your vocabulary so that they do not distract the audience from the presentation content and objective.
9. BEHAVIOUR – Eye Power
During presentations it is essential to give each audience member eye contact. This video explains how and why this is necessary and for how long you should try to look at each person.
10. BEHAVIOUR – Power Positions
The speaker has a responsibility to control every aspect of their presentation. Too often speakers stand in an inappropriate place that serves to confuse the audience. In this video the learner will be shown the two places that must be used during their future presentation.
11. BEHAVIOUR – Power Presence
The speaker is the undisputed number one visual aid. Sadly too often this powerful status is ignored or deliberately discarded. The video explains that it is unwise to be a slave to PowerPoint and that there are various alternatives that can be used to enhance most presentations.
12. BEHAVIOUR – PowerPoint
PowerPoint has many benefits for the presenter and audience when used properly. Unfortunately, too often it is used incorrectly as a preparation tool and the audience suffers the dreaded slow “death by PowerPoint”. In this video the learner will see how this media should and should not be used.
13. QUESTIONS – Powerful Responses
There is usually no shame in saying that you don’t know the answer to a question. Sometimes the answer may be closer than you think when you are under pressure. In this video you will hear of ways that will give you time to think before dealing with tricky questions.
