The VoiceThe voice is probably the most valuable tool of the presenter. Itcarries most of the content that the audience takes away.One of the features of speech is that we can easily tell otherswhat is wrong with their voice, e.g. too fast, too high, toosoft, etc., but we have trouble listening to and changing ourown voices.- Volume- intensity- Tone- Pace- Color 13. The Body Your body communicates different impressions. People not only listen to you, they also watch you. Displaying good posture tells your audience that you know what you are doing and you care deeply about it. Also, a good posture helps you to speak more clearly and effective. Eye contact Facial Expressions Gestures Posture and bodyorientation Proximity 14. Active ListeningGood speakers not only inform their audience, they also listen to them. Bylistening, you know if they are understanding the information and if theinformation is important to them. Active listening is NOT the same ashearing! Hearing is the first part and consists of the perception ofsound.- Evaluative- Interpretive- Supportive- Understanding 15. NervesThe main enemy of a presenter is tension, which ruins the voice, posture,and spontaneity. The voice becomes higher as the throat tenses.Shoulders tighten up and limits flexibility while the legs start to shakeand causes unsteadiness. The presentation becomes "canned" as thespeaker locks in on the notes and starts to read directly from them.-Before the presentation - Lie on the floor-Mental Visualization-During the presentation -Take a moment to yourself-Never drink alcohol to reduce tension-Know that even the best presenters make mistakes 16. Questions Keep cool if a questioner disagrees with you. You are a professional! No matter how hard you try, not everyone in the world will agree with you!- Always allow time at the end of the presentation for questions.- Questions do not mean you did not explain the topic good enough- Make sure you listen to the question being asked- Answers that last 10 to 40 seconds work best 17. Tips ans TechniquesEleanor Roosevelt was a shy young girl who was terrified at the thought of speaking in public. But with each passing year, she grew in confidence and self-esteem. She once said, "No one can make you feel inferior, unless you agree with it." - If you have handouts, do not read straight from them. - Do not put both hands in your pockets for long periods of time. - Do not wave a pointer around in the air - Speak to the audience...NOT to the visual aids. - Use colored backgrounds on overhead transparencies and slides - Learn the name of each participant as quickly as possible . - Circulate around the room as you speak. 18.
