How to Push the Attention Reset Button in Presentations

Of course there are times when we give presentations and we notice that we are somehow losing the attention of our audience. Typically, this happens when the presentation is not well-prepared, when the presenter or speaker is an amateur, or when the topic being discussed is simply boring.

Well, don’t fret. Even if you’re a beginner in this field, there are buttons you can push to make sure that you are not losing your audience. Olivia Mitchell, another presentation guru, discusses this further on her blog: What to do when you’re losing your audience

  1. Tell a story.
  2. Make your audience laugh.
  3. Make a transition.
  4. Break for Q&A.
  5. Change something… anything.
  6. Make them talk.
  7. Make them write.
  8. Take mini breaks.
These things are easier said than done. To find out more how to push these attention reset buttons, head to:   What to do when you’re losing your audience
