How To Make Your Next Presentation Unforgettable

How To Make Your Next Presentation Unforgettable

Presentation plays a vital role in representing an individual or company’s core values, innovations and efficiency. Every business and enterprise requires unique presentation in front of people in order to stand out from the rest and to build a confidence in people.

Giving a presentation in front of a group of people, including bosses, clients and people worldwide that are connected via teleconference is one of the toughest things you’ll have to do. During such a critical situation the major thing is to MAINTAIN CONFIDENCE. It doesn’t matter if your presentation is good or bad, if you are confident enough only then are you capable of sharing your ideas and can convince others. There are a few easy steps to make your presentation effective, interactive and memorable:

Vary sound, sight and evidence

Diversify your presentation material in order to keep the audience attentive with variation in your evidence, voice and visuals. By adding diversity while speaking and volume rate, you keep your audience’s attention and inspire them to tune in. By talking expressively and conversationally, your passion will shine.

Inject your presentations with emotional words, like “excited.” With practice, you’ll feel more comfortable with this type of vocal variety. Rehearse your presentation and you will get confidence.

Fluctuating the kind of evidence you use to support claims in your presentation is vital. Presenters used to rely on their favorite kind of evidence, like stories or data. Both quantitative and quantitative academic exploration has found triangulating your support delivers more memorable results. Consequently, try to deliver three diverse kinds of evidence, such as a testimonial, a data point and a story. This will conveniently strengthen your argument.

In order to intensify the variety of your nonverbal delivery (movement and gestures), record yourself while delivering a presentation during rehearsal, then play the recording and practice your gestures/movements. You can add variation to body movements and gestures without the distraction of speaking.

Know your audience

Being a presenter, your job is to assist your audience and make it easy for them to understand your message without any hurdles. Avoid delivering numbers devoid of context, because this makes it hard for the audience to understand the relevance.

An additional method to make things relevant is by connecting your presentation theme with information the audience already knows. You can activate the audience’s mental constructs by comparison of advanced information with something the audience already knows about.

Rehearse your presentation for better output

Rehearse your presentation again and again as many times as possible, and consequently you will get better. In this way you overcome your fear of forgetting some ideas or fear of lack of confidence. You must also be neatly dressed. Audiences are going to notice you and what you say, so it is always good to “put the best foot forward” for the day.

Read the mindset of the audience

You should be capable of judging or studying the mindset of the clients/audiences who will be attending your presentation. You must be confident with the topic of the presentation and solve all the doubts related to it. So if your audience asks you a question, you should be capable of answering it.

Make them care

Emotionally-charged messages are more easily remembered by people than fact-based messages. Our emotional reactions have a fast roadway to our long-term memory. Try to bring some sort of emotion into your presentation to make it effective. Your tone and style should be compatible with the emotional impact. You should practice in front of those groups who can give feedback so you can make yourself as perfect as possible.

By adding emotion and variety, you can be sure the audience will remember it for a long time. The way you present leaves a strong impact on the audience. Amplify your positive impact on the audience by using these techniques and approaches.

How to Be Productive: 11 Ways to Be Productive and Happy at Once

How to Be Productive: 11 Ways to Be Productive and Happy at Once

A lack of productivity leads to a lack of happiness.

When you can’t see yourself making progress or getting things done, you get anxious and become stressful.

There are also tons of things that contribute to unhappiness here too: Facebook notifications, emails, texts, and chatty co-workers are just a small fraction of the disruptions we’re bombarded with. These “little things” can stack up fast and lead to hampering your happiness and productivity levels.

Learn how to be productive with the 11 tips below and reclaim your everyday productivity and your happiness, once and for all.

1. Be happy now

Life is too short. No matter what you’re doing or where you are, be happy now. Start by finding something to be grateful for; everyone has at least one thing to be grateful for.

Most of the world still has trouble getting access to clean drinking water… yhat means you can even be grateful for that bottle of Aquafina you’ve got on your desk right now.

2. Finish your day before it starts

Proper planning is the secret to peak productivity, and it’s also a good idea to set daily goals. Get yourself a planning tool and prioritize your daily tasks with it.

3. Celebrate the small wins

Every time you check off a task from your to-do list, you release a “happy chemical” in your brain called dopamine. This gives you the motivation to move forward and do even more.

For example, after I finish writing this article and I’ve crossed it off my list of things to do today, I’ll get a nice burst of “happy chemicals” releasing in my brain. The best part? Zero side effects!

4. Leverage like there’s no tomorrow

Look for ways to use the good old 80/20 rule by identifying tasks that you might be able to outsource or leverage out to a virtual assistant.

Stop wasting time doing things that don’t challenge you or ignite your passion. Hire out or automate anything and everything within your means.

5. Recharge your batteries

Figure out how many hours of sleep your body needs and make sure you get it. Take time to stretch, walk, or relax—you’ll be glad you did.

Here’re some simple ways to relax completely and get rid of stress.

6. Become an early riser

This is one of the most underused productivity “hacks” on the planet. Ever since I decided to start waking up at 5am every day, my productivity levels and happiness have gone up dramatically.

Most people aren’t up that early, so no one can bother you or disrupt you from what you want to do. Use this time to exercise, meditate, or to get a head start on your day.

7. Do work you’re passionate about

Make it your goal to blur the line between work and play by doing more things you’re passionate about. This promotes happiness both inside and outside of the workplace.

8. Use time blocks

For example, when I wrote this article, I gave myself a one hour time block. This prevents unnecessary dilly-dallying like updating your Facebook status and checking email.

Use an app like Alarmed to keep you on track.  Here’s a snapshot of the app from my iPhone.

    9. Avoid interruptions

    Interruptions are among the biggest barriers to both productivity and happiness. Every time you’re interrupted in the middle of a task your level of productivity takes a hit.

    We’ve all been there: you’re fully immersed in an important project until all of a sudden the workplace chatterbox appears out of nowhere and starts talking about stuff that doesn’t matter. By the time she’s gone, you’ve already forgotten where you were and it takes 30 minutes to get back on track.

    Avoid this by letting people know that you’ve got important work that’s got to be done.

    10. Shut down the digital disruptions

    iPhones, mailbox notifications, twitter, facebook, and everything that pops, slides, or fades in and out of your screen has got to go. Shut them down and focus.

    It’s as easy as turning off the notifications or scheduling only a specific time to check all these notifications and texts.

    11. Measure your success

    Every now and then, it’s a good idea to measure your results and see how things are coming along.

    How’s your progress? Are you pacing in the right direction? Are things getting better? Worse? It’s always a good idea to track your progress regularly.

    With an app like Rescue Time, you can easily keep track of the time you spend throughout the day. It helps you to find out how much time you’re really on-task and so you can review your progress.

      With these 11 effective ways to improve productivity, you will get more things done timely and become happier.

      Start small and take up each suggestion one by one, you can boost your productivity and create your happiness too.
