What Not To Do When Presenting

do-not-sign-handprint-illustration-design-over-white-background-48231766I usually give tips on this blog on what a speaker should do or apply in his speech and presentations to make him look professional, make him effective and more interesting and captivating to the audience. On this post however, let me give you a few quick tips on what NOT to do instead:

  1. Begin your talk or presentation with an agenda slide. It’s unnecessary and your audience doesn’t really care. Instead, say or do something that will grab their attention right from the get-go.
  2. Let your audience hold their questions until the end.
  3. Make visual aids that are hard to process. They take the attention of the audience away from you.
  4. Say sorry. It takes away your power and credibility.
  5. Skip recapping the whole idea of your presentation.
