It’s a commonly-known truth that not too many people have the natural ability—or even comfort—with public speaking or presenting. And that is okay! Even the best trainers and presenters out there have combatted nerves and have had to prep for hours and hours before a presentation.
You know what they say: practice makes perfect! From sports and music to test-taking and cooking—this adage is applicable across nearly all of life’s events. At The Bob Pike Group, we know that practice does indeed make perfect when it comes to prepping for a presentation of any type or size!
Being able to do your best to prepare for a presentation shows your audience that you cared to take the time to be able to clearly deliver the messaging and content they’re excited to absorb. A smooth presentation with clear objectives and delivery will surely result in better content retention and engagement.
Here’s a quick and handy list to guide you as you prepare for your next presentation. Not every tip will work for you, so pick and choose what best suits your training style. You won’t regret taking the time to prep. Oh, and always remember that participant-centered training is king!
These are just a few tips trainers can use to prepare for their next presentation! As you prepare, stop and think of previous presentations you’ve attended that have left a lasting impact on your own learning. The impact it left on you is largely due to the preparation by the presenter ahead of time.
At The Bob Pike Group, we offer great courses that focus on presentation skills. Be sure to sign up for an upcoming workshop that will help you prepare for your next presentation while integrating Creative Training Techniques®. In our two-day Presentation Skills workshop, you will learn how to refine your own content into an engaging presentation you can deliver with poise back on the job!
