Reading – 7 presentation tips from the 2015 world champion of public speaking

These are really good. As a trainer, the one I liked the best was the last tip:

Visualize rather than memorize your speech.

If you try memorizing your speech word by word, your performance will suffer, Qahtani said.

He likes to visualize a map of certain points in his speech that he fills in during his performance. It’s about becoming comfortable with the material to a degree where you can casually talk about it.

When you’re teaching a multiple day course, memorization is not really possible, but visualization is. I like to have the road map in my head about where we need to go, and make sure we hit the targets along that map at approximately the correct time to keep the class moving forward within the correct time frame. Then I have the freedom to let the class interaction occur naturally within that larger picture.

That works for me. What tips would you give for presentations?
