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’re moving onto the letter J.
Jabber – this is a common fault among speakers and one that can be easily avoided with plenty of rehearsal. The more chatter you surround your messages with, the less they are going to get through and stick with people.
Jargon – everyday terms that you use may not be as widely used within the whole company. Be sure not to use anything that the whole audience won’t know. Be careful with marketing speak, audience members can find this off putting and see it as you not being entirely straight with them.
Justify – don’t justify every point you make but make sure you can. Messages or statements that may have consequences should be explained and given reasoning to help your audience understand.
