Giving PowerPoint presentations has become an important part of being a student. As a student, you will be swamped with presentations throughout your academic life and trust us, that doesn’t stop. Therefore, being good at presenting your hard work is of utmost importance. If you are not good at it, there is just one tip and that is to learn to be good at it. Whether it is your new science project or a computer software that you recently developed, you have to tell it to people in the most compelling and interesting of ways.
We at My Presentation Designer have compiled a list of tips that can help you give better PowerPoint presentations. Let’s have a look:
Well, you may have heard it in your Communication Skills class – there should not be too many words on the slides. Having a text-heavy slide makes it extremely difficult for the audience to understand you – obviously they are not there to read. Make sure you present your content in simple bullet points and that you do most of the talking.
If you think what you have to say is boring (which will be the case most of the times), do not be afraid to do something creative or interesting to lure the audience in. We have all seen how Obama can be funny in his speeches and how Novak Djokovic makes everybody laugh in press conferences. This ability to improvise makes us want to listen to them again and again.
The presenters who can engage their audience for the maximum amount of time are considered to be the best presenters. For this, you may have to do something unconventional, such as having a cartoon in your PowerPoint presentation and talking to it or making an interesting conversation with somebody in the audience. Whatever you do, the point is to grab your listeners’ attention and keep it with you throughout.
The best way to connect with an audience is to start by telling a personal story. This tells them that you are sharing a part of your life with them and makes them ready for what you have to say afterwards. A story builds a sense of trust and shows the audience that you are also a human. If you do it right, there is very high probability that your PowerPoint Presentation will be a success.
Making eye contact throughout the presentation with everybody from the left corner to right is very important. It makes the audience feel that they are being talked to and this is what the purpose of a presentation is. Make sure you prepare making eye contact with a friend in rehearsal. The trick is to be relaxed and think of it as a conversation. It is only when you seem interested in the audience that they consider truly listening to what you have to say.
No matter what topic you are given by your teacher, there is always some aspect in it that you are interested in. Find that angle and show your enthusiasm in the presentation. Obviously, if you do not seem interested, your audience will not either. Also, people are more convincing when they are talking about something they are really passionate about.
