Speak To The Next Slide September 22, 2010

Posted by Jason in Daily PM.

Here’s a simple tip to remember for any presentation:

As you present (or prepare the talk), think of the transition to the next slide and speak to its points before you click over.

That’s it.  Simple, right?

But think about what this requires.  First, you obviously need to know your material and the slide content.  You’re not using the slides as your notes.  You’re using them as supporting material for the points that your active speech and body movements should already be communicating to your audience.

If you’re not doing this, your audience is reading the slides rather than listening to your words.  If this is happening, you can sit down and everyone can just read silently.  Or maybe you don’t need to be there at all…
