I have heard it said that public speaking is, for many of us, our greatest fear. More scary than death or dentists!
And yet even if it is just 5 minutes at a meeting, you will need to do presentations, and how well you do them will have a great impact on how successful you are perceived to be.
One of the things that most people struggle with is how to structure a presentation. How to start, what to say and how to end.
For example, your introduction should include
- Rapport building
- Greeting and scene setting
- Who you are and why you are here
- What’s in it for the audience
Then there is the body of the presentation, and so on…
My best wishes, Paul
