So much presentation skills advice focuses just on the presenter, ignoring the fact that a great presentation needs effective slides. Think about it: if your slides are dire, what you do with your hands is pretty irrelevant!
There are plenty of claims out there about the best way to prepare for a presentation:
- Your slides should contain a single image with one line of text
- You should use a script
- You should practice in front of a mirror
- You should always maintain eye contact, and not look at your slides
So how do you separate fact from fiction? Our free video presentation dismantles the myths around presenting. We will look at how to prepare for a presentation, where to stand, where to look when presenting, and – most importantly – how to make sure your slides support you – instead of undermining you.
