Help a presentation - Just keep calm!

Overview

In the beginning was the nervousness. Even before it even starts, the hands become sweaty, the pulse speeds up, worst-case scenarios flash in our mind's eye. What if I promise myself? Or worse, if I stumble? Or - I can not think of that - forget what I want to say? A presentation in front of people is always a special situation.

That the body reacts to it with its natural stress program is completely normal - and not always bad. Your attention is sharpened, your muscles and organs are optimally supplied with blood and oxygen. What should serve as a quick escape from the saber-toothed tiger before 2.000 years now ensures that you are particularly powerful. Short-term stress can turn us into absolute high flyers!

4 tips against stage fright and for a successful presentation

Overview

But if we get too nervous, that can quickly turn negative. The language stays away, the pulse explodes. Therefore, I would like to give you a few tips against burgeoning stage fright:

1. Chocolate always helps

Overview

Good news for anyone with a sweet tooth: cocoa in chocolate contains substances that help to increase concentration.

Eat 30 minutes before your performance two pieces of chocolate (not a whole bar!) With a high cocoa content - milk chocolate unfortunately helps less here.

2. Stage fright is not bad per se

Overview

As already mentioned, stage fright is not always a bad thing. Think of it as a sign that your body is adjusting to an extraordinary situation.

Learn to accept your excitement instead of fighting it with all your might. Often that is enough to lower the blood pressure again.

3. Water invigorates

Overview

Imagine a glass of still water within reach of your presentation. So you can moisten your mouth every now and then.

By the way: Take really still water. Sparkling water is less suitable because the carbonic acid makes it burst.

4. Do not ask questions at the end

Overview

The last sentence of your presentation has by far the greatest impact on your audience. Only a few speakers use this opportunity. Often a lecture ends like this: "Um, that's it. Do you still have any questions? "What initially sounds polite is actually a bad ending for your presentation.

This is especially true in the event that you are standing in front of a silent audience in which no one wants to ask a question and then you eventually leave the stage meekly. You will learn how to do it better if you continue reading.

4 tips for optimal presentation preparation

Overview

You have prepared a PowerPoint presentation? Often the temptation is then to cling to the lectern and hide behind his slides. The good news: If you pay attention to the following factors, the presentation will not steal your show - but will make a significant contribution to the success of your speech.

1. Presentation is not called PowerPoint

Overview

Visualization is important, everyone agrees. Unfortunately, there are always and still presentations that rely heavily on PowerPoint - and not just for the accompanying image presentation. The tool is often used simultaneously as a handout and sticky notes of the speaker. My tip: Leave the text slides away. All text slides! As a thought support, you can prepare small orator cards with the key points.

And even if it means more effort: The documents for your participants should not just be the printed PowerPoint file. Here, in contrast to the slides explanations and further references should find. If you already pack this into your presentation and throw it on the wall with a beamer - who else will listen to you?

2. Be minimalist

Overview

"Oh, I could take that with me, too" or "Maybe I should go into a bit more detail here." Do these thoughts come to you familiar? Many people believe that the more information they process, the better the presentation.

The opposite is the case. Instead of taking all the infohappen left and right along the way, you should concentrate on an important message, which you then emotionally charge and impart with enthusiasm. So something is stuck with the audience - at best, exactly what you want!

3. Come to the dark side of power!

Overview

Build instead of the next infographic or 50. Picture in between times a black slide in your presentation. When there's no sign of it on the screen, the audience's attention is back to you. Believe me, this surprising visual effect is far better than the 20. Cake chart.

4. Finish the talk with an appeal

Overview

Better: Before you come to the conclusion of your presentation or lecture, suggest that you are welcome to ask questions after the presentation. Then finish your speech with a clear appeal to the audience.

This appeal is a succinct, effective conclusion to your presentation, which remains in the public's memory.
