Executives, leaders and team members all need effective presentation skills to be effective in business. Whether you are speaking at a conference or running a team meeting, you need to organize your thoughts and grab people’s attention. Plus, you need to be conscious of non-verbal cues and body language to come across with as masterful and confident.
Organize Your Thoughts – What message do you need to convey? When you organize your thoughts properly, you will craft a well-composed message that is easy to understand and remember. Start by knowing the outcome you want. What action do you need listeners to take after hearing you speak? Then open with a bang and close with a call to action to drive results. Laurie simplifies the process to organize your thoughts.
Grab Attention Quickly – How do you wake people up, get their attention and keep it? If you don’t grab the audience’s attention with your opening, you may not fully communicate the important facts and message you intended to share. Discover how to capture the listener’s interest and hold on to them from the first word until the last.
Use Body Language and Tone of Voice – Everyone reads body language even if not fully aware they are doing it. Your non-verbal and vocal cues can make you appear confident and at the top of your game or nervous and ineffective. Learn the moves and tone of voice that ensures you make a solid first impression and finish with impact.
