Gender Bias in Presentations

I came across this interesting blog post about a blog carnival entitled “Top Presentation Strategies for Women”. The author of the blog post,  Lisa Braithwaite, is right. Why is there a need to single out women? Is there really a very big difference between how men and women present? What do you think?

As for me, I think not. Whether you’e a woman or a man, doing a fantastic presentation does not depend on your gender. It depends on how prepared you are and how much information and skill you have attained all throughout these years of speaking in public and / or doing presentations for your respective audiences.

On that particular blog post, basic principles for presenting were enumerated and explained. Let me share some of them here with you. So whether you’re a man or a woman, you can use these tips to improve your skills in presenting:

1. Learn about your audience and venue in advance.

2. Prepare a strong opening and closing.

3. Engage the audience; ask open-ended questions and invite their participation and knowledge.
