Have you checked out our 10 Second Tips yet? We’ve put together about 15 snippets of advice for presenters and speakers – and they’re all really short… around the 10 second mark.
Obviously in ten seconds we’re not going to go deep into the topics. These short videos are intended as little prompts, reminders of best practices if you really want your message to resonate with an audience.
So we’ve compiled some tips and techniques that, over years of delivering our popular TalkitOut coaching workshops, we’ve found to be absolutely central to good presentations.
The first two have been posted on Facebook and Instagram. We’ve started a video playlist on Facebook, so if you missed the first two, you can catch up here. And don’t forget to check every Monday for a new tip.
The topics include how to start a speech or presentation, how to connect with an audience, the importance of telling stories, the persuasive power of passion, and the massive difference that the simple pause makes to any presentation.
We also look at defining your controlling idea, using humour, understanding body language, and how to ad lib safely.
Check our posts on Facebook and Instagram. We always like to hear from you, especially if your want to share any experiences of public speaking.
Talking of tips, we’re also giving away a series of four short videos packed with tips, plus a White Paper of our Top Ten Tips, and a sample of our new online course Presentations Masterclass.
