Conducting presentations is one of the types of publicActivity, which involves demonstrating and describing an idea. The need for a presentation can be related to professional or educational activities.

In either case, it is recommended to use the general rules for conducting such speeches in order not to make mistakes and get success.



Take time to prepare the presentation. First of all, create a plan that must begin with the presentation of your person and the presentation theme. The plan should resemble the table of contents in the book. Make your speech: start with the introduction, telling about the purpose and relevance of the problem, in the main part, concentrate on the main idea, its merits, characteristics and features, in the end summarize, underline once again several important points. In the presentation, the main thing is not what to say, but how. By highlighting important ideas, you must ensure that they sound clear, simple, clear and at the same time interesting. It is possible during the speech several times to repeat an important idea, so that everyone will catch the message.


Competently prepare slides. Remember that they should only illustrate your story, but do not describe everything for you. Do not put a lot of text into slides, they only carry visual information for better perception. Your presentation should first of all be an interesting narrative with the right intonation and expressive gestures. Even interesting pictures fade in front of a monotonous, inexpressive speech. Instead of the text on the slides, pay attention to the correct selection of images, try to make the slides illustrate your presentation as best as possible, clearly demonstrating your idea. Beautifully design the slides using a gradient background and a medium-sized font. Do not insert large tables or multi-level lists.


Adapt content to listeners -Operate only with those terms that the audience understands, and if you have to talk about something new, then explain the meaning in detail so that there is no doubt in your knowledge. In the story you can insert a little humor so that the presentation is not tedious.


The presentation, as a rule, lasts one hour,Including technical problems and tuning techniques, answers to questions from listeners and the story itself. The narration should last no more than twenty minutes, in which lay all the theses and main thoughts of your presentation. Rehearse the presentation several times.


While conducting a presentation, do not rush or delay. Speak clearly, clearly and in a measured manner. Watch your intonation, emphasize important details, do not forget about pauses. Do not read your report, look at the audience and do not turn your back on it. It is not recommended to lean on a table or chair. You can move around the room to establish a closer contact with listeners. But do not go constantly from side to side, this can only distract them.


At the end of the presentation, give the audience colorful booklets or CDs with a presentation to confirm their words and leave something to memory. This increases your chances of success.
