Keys to unlocking your best public speaking self
Quick, simple techniques that will change the way you see public speaking
  
You're sweating and your heart is pumping double-time. We've all been there as we approach the podium to give our presentation. Americans share this common phobia. It is our #1 fear, ahead of dying! But with a few simple techniques, we can start to tackle this monster and pave the way for better, more engaging presentations. We'll learn how to first establish a strong connection with the audience, and then keep them engaged while we deliver our material.

Presentation Skills in a Nutshell: The "Shortcut" to Speaking Excellence
Becoming an Excellent Speaker in Just One Hour
  
Among the traits required for effective leadership, none is more important than the ability to speak in front of a group, to get “buy-in”. Yet speaking in front of a group is also the number one fear in the US. How can these contradictions be reconciled? Simple. With Larry Tracy’s “Presentation Skills in a Nutshell” method. Attendees in his training session grasp an easy-to-learn-and-implement method to present coherently and persuasively before any audience-a system Larry developed, and used so effectively, that President Reagan described him as “An extraordinarily effective speaker.” His "Nutshell" method has evolved from three facts: (1) Strong presentation skills are vital for managers and executives aspiring for greater success and the winning of competitive contracts (2) Busy people have neither the time nor the need to learn the “glitz” of the public speaker; (3) Instead, they require a “shortcutâ€...

Bullet Points are Deadly
Bring Power to Your PowerPoint
  
Bullets kill. Bullet points make an audience wish that they could do away with the presenter! There is no need for most slides to have more than a few key words. The speaker should be the focus, not the slide. Slides should support the speaker’s key points, not repeat them. Great slides have a pictures, cartoons, brief quotes or phrases, and never a long series of tiny dots and even tinier print. Why would you want to give your audience an eye exam? If you are an optician that might make sense, but the speaker’s job is to inform, persuade, motivate or entertain. A long line of bullet points does none of those essential tasks. Make your PowerPoint presentation visually compelling, dynamic, colorful, clever, or emotional. Use pictures (not clip art) to underscore and drive home your key points. Think of a magazine cover that demands your attention; so should a good slide. But after a few seconds the attention should go back to the speaker. Jim’s presentation cont...
