Presentation Skills PPT

January 26, 2012 by Dr. Jon Warner in Presentation Skills

Presentation Skills PPTThe ability to present confidently and well can be a significant benefit to individuals both in their personal and in their workplace life. These skills can help an individual to share his or her ideas, gain support for his/her recommendations, train or coach others, win a promotion or even achieve a pay rise. However, despite the clear advantages, many people avoid presenting at all costs. So why is this?

For many people, making a presentation fills them with fear and trepidation. In fact, most people are more comfortable dealing with death, bankruptcy, taxes, divorce, imprisonment, snakes, spiders, mice, and the dark, rather than to have to stand in front of even a small group of people and talk for just a few minutes. This makes the whole experience one to avoid if at all possible.

Overcoming presentation fear cannot be achieved overnight, but the process can be made a little easier and less intimidating each time with two approaches.

  1. Learning more about the basic skills of presenting, including preparing your message or content, flowing it sequentially creating a presentation event that will work well for a given audience.
  2. Learning how to better prepare yourself properly and deliver any presentation in a clam, confident and well-paced manner each time.

A Presentation skills PowerPoint (or ppt) led workshop can help many people to better appreciate both of the above approaches and to practice skills in the safe climate of a training room. In this case, this Presentation skills PPT is also fully scripted with trainer notes, allowing full explanations of points to be given by a workshop leader or facilitator (whether or not they are a professional trainer) and even includes a range of discussion exercises and paired or group activities to allow participants to practice specific skills as they are described or shared.
