10 Tips To An Effective Presentation
ASPCA, National Shelter Outreach
- Eye Contact
Using lots of eye contact makes people feel connected to you and the program.
Gestures can help you paint pictures with words but be careful that exaggerated gestures don’t detract from the message.
Be enthusiastic. If you don’t care, why should they!
Articulate your words clearly so your audience understands you, especially if the topic is unfamiliar to them.
Controlling your breathing helps you to control nervousness and gives you time to gather your next thought. It allows you to pause to provide emphasis.
Correct posture conveys confidence to your audience.
Change the tone of your voice to create or change a mood.
Dress for success. Be neat and professional. Don’t wear accessories that make noise or that will be distracting.
Use proper language and watch those nonwords (um, uh, etc.).
You look better and feel better when you smile. It will warm up the audience too.
