Each month we will bring you hints, tips and inside advice on how you can be making the most of your presentation, whilst ensuring you stand out from the crowd.
This month we’ve got the letter F.
Fear – most people are fearful of public speaking, but remember that most of the audience will have the same fear as you. The best way to combat fear is to practice and be prepared, you’ll have confidence in knowing you are ready to speak and know exactly what you’re going to say.
Fonts – being creative with your presentation is great but be careful with fonts, use legible fonts and stay clear of handwritten type. Try to choose a font that has variations, so you can bold key words. If you do use a non-standard font make sure you install it onto the laptop that will be running your presentation.
Facts & Figures – bold facts & figures can really make an impact and make the audience sit up and listen. They are a great way to back up what you are saying. Be careful not to make your whole presentations fact based, the audience will respond well to your opinions too.
