Presentations have become an enormous part of the way we work today. For some it means turning up to seminars and conventions to share our company’s message, while for others it can be presenting new ideas in the safety of the office. But even if it’s as rare for you as an occasional job interview, having the confidence to perform a winning presentation can be crucial to your career.
In fact, a whopping 75% of us confess to suffering from anxiety when it comes to public speaking. But that needn’t be the case, with the right preparation and a few special techniques, nailing that presentation can be a doddle. For a start, you’ll need to prepare. Identify the message you want to share, find a way to express it as a story, and arm yourself with some visual prompts to get you — and your audience — through all that text.
Giving a killer presentation isn’t rocket science — it’s closer to rock’n’roll! Once you’re confident in your material and in your method, you may even come to enjoy the challenge. Check out our new infographic for a step-by-step guide on how to develop that killer technique.
