Tell the Story
Recently I heard two presentations – adequate….compelling perhaps….call to action maybe.
Making a presentation meaningful and interesting takes work. Toastmasters is a good place to hone ones speaking skills.
From the Harvard Business School:
Telling a story is a the key element in excellent presentation skills along with a call to action….after all that is the purpose of most presentations. The other component is the professionalism of the speaker….developing a style which holds the interest of the audience….speaking clearly with out the use of filler words and overused adjectives….and of course succinct.
It’s a speakers responsibility to be excellent and nothing less….otherwise don’t take on the task.
