Opening Your opening has three powerful purposes Selling your audience on listening to your presentation. Introducing the subject matter. Establishing your personal credibility. } Opening } Main Content } ClosingPowerPoint Presentation: Opening the talk Opening the Talk The most critical time to be locked into your audience is in the opening of your talk. That's the moment the audience is forming their first impression of you. All their subsequent attitudes and opinions are filtered through this initial reaction. Think of it as similar to meeting an individual for the first time. When I first meet someone, I gain a sense of trust if they look me in the eye, give me a firm handshake and direct all their attention to me. If they turn away or attend to something other than me, I'm unlikely to connect with them.PowerPoint Presentation: Opening material Direct Statement About your subject and why it is important to your audience. Indirect Opening Dealing with some vital interest of your audience that you can link to your subject. Vivid example Vivid example or comparison leading directly to your subject. A recent media example of something that is happening in their community etc. Strong quotation Related to your subject. Using a quotation that can easily be remembered. Important statistic Related to the subject. Story or anecdote Illustrating your subject. Share a story about something you have experienced or know of. Questions Posing a question to the audience to ponder on. Interaction Getting the audience to share an experience with another member of the audience or some other form of interaction e.g. show of hands Suggested approaches for your opening include:PowerPoint Presentation: connecting Connecting So when you start your talk, make it your first goal to connect with your audience. Try to have yourself and your material organised so that, from the moment you stand up, you are able to focus all your attention onto the members of your audience. Avoid referring to your notes or laptop or looking at the screen. Once you've made this connection then it's fine to break eye-contact because you've created a positive, audience-centred impression. You can then refer to your notes or work your PowerPoint as often as you need. But never let these things be the main focus of your attention. Make each member of the audience feel as if they are the most important thing. Then they're more likely to trust you and you'll be more likely to influence them.PowerPoint Presentation: Making a connection Have you ever been served by a shop-assistant who is also talking on the phone or chatting to a fellow staff-member when they were supposed to focussed on you? It gives the impression that they couldn't care less about you doesn't it. Sadly you can see a similar impression being created in many presentations.PowerPoint Presentation: Presenters trap Presenters Trap The presenter stands up to begin their talk - but instead of looking at the members of their audience, connecting with a smile or at least some kind of eye-contact, they're either pushing buttons on their laptop, shuffling their notes or looking at the screen behind them. The impression that's created is "I'm not really interested in you - I'm more interested in getting my presentation right!" Very often this type of behaviour gives the audience the impression that the speaker is unfamiliar with their material - perhaps not a credible expert. But paradoxically, many of the people we see doing this on our training courses are actually highly qualified in what they're talking about. The solution is simple. Instead of being obsessed with your notes or PowerPoint, be obsessed with your audience . That means more than just looking at them while you're speaking. Notice their reaction to your words. If you ask a question, give them time to consider their answer before you start talking again. Use their responses - nods and smiles - to pace your delivery.PowerPoint Presentation: Maintain the connection Maintain the Connection To maintain this connection, don't break eye-contact until you finish the sentence you are delivering. In fact, once you've finished a sentence, keep your eyes up on your audience to gauge their reaction to what you've just said - in other words, show interest in their response. An audience-obsessed speaker is keenly interested in their audience's reaction to their words - they care about their audience. A notes-obsessed speaker doesn't really seem to be interested in what their audience thinks at all. CONGRATULATION !!! You have completed the course: CONGRATULATION !!!
