Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
Why do we speak?
Know your Audience and Estimate their Expectations
Determine the Style of Your Presentation
Instead of memorizing,
Do i have to memorize my presentation?
It's important to know your materials.
Organize the structure of your presentation.
Plan the flow of your talk.
Don't be bound by words.
you can use an outline or notes

This will help you determine the language you're going to use, the pace and tune of your voice
If you're talking to a group of young people, you will use modern terms and you will probably talk faster.
- the opposite occurs if you're talking to an older group.
This depends on the nature of the topic,
For example: if it's a business meeting, using facts will be required.
If you're teaching a skill or a moral, then stories will be excellent.
TIP: Most of the time you will be using a mix of those two in different parts of your presentation. (People LOVE to hear stories)
The ideal dress?
Preparing Your presentation
When preparing your slides, make them short, concise, clear and to the point.
After all, no one wants to read 500 slides stuffed with useless words.
It all comes down to this one,
– Eye contact
– Posture & movement
Vary the tone and pace of your speech
Put warmth in your voice (friendly tone)
Put energy and animation in your voice
We have to pay attention to three things
Using Your Voice
Eye contact keeps people engaged
and is a great source of feedback
Make eye-contact often
Be mindful of duration
Don’t ping-pong back and forth
Make contact with the entire room
Avoid overuse of one or two gestures
Don’t grip immovable objects
Avoid crossing your arms
Adopt a comfortable, confident stance
Evenly distribute your weight
Keep as few barriers as possible between you and the audience
Posture & Movement
It's perfectly Normal!
People start listening only
when you stop talking
If you're going passionate
do NOT pause.
If you're using facts, pause to let the people absorb the information
What NOT to do?
Give Respect, Get Respect
The amount of respect and attention you give to your audience, is what triggers their behavior towards you
Don't try to imitate a presenter, You're unique
so should your presentation
