    How To Prepare Ourselves For A Presentation?

    Hi everyone!

    I have done a couple of presentations at my campus but still now I don't have a much clear picture about how to actually do a presentation in front of a huge crowd!


    It would be really helpful if you guys could give me some tips on..


    • The style of presenting it
    • The accent we should follow
    • The way to make the presentation more interesting without the crowd letting bored
    • The way to seek the audience's attention

    Every public speakers having their own style and if you ask them they would tell you like they became this level because of their first ever terrible presentation Personally i realized that myself too!

    There are multiple types of presentations like, Story telling, Public speaking, Corporate presentation, Sales Pitch, Startup pitching ( Mostly 5-8 minutes), free style public speaking,etc,etc! Get to know your target audience and the type of the presentation that you wanted to do first.

    It depends whether you've stage fear. It goes away when you do this often, trust me.
    You don't have to mind your accent or style. Just be confident and flow in your way of speaking.
    If you want to grab attention, then you must be energetic or your topic must be heavily interesting. Once or twice cracking subtle jokes will help. Give an energetic opening to your presentation. Don't go with the template openers, but try something unique on your own.
    And keep eye contact with the audience! That is the key to not to letting them sleep. If you're nervous, keep an eye contact with few trustworthy people in the crowd. That would make you much familiar and likable.

    Shana, Thanks for these practical tips from your own experience. I too have a bit of stage fear, I think with practice we can overcome this. And I agree with you we should have our unique presentation style rather than following others.
