How to Present Your Ideas Clearly - A 3 Step Process
Originally published on PresentationExpressions.com.
When you give a presentation, it is very different for your audience than when they are trying to learn something by reading about it. When someone reads something and they don't understand, they can re-read until they understand; however, that is impossible when they are listening to your presentation. They cannot ask you to go back and repeat the presentation, nor can you go back and repeat what you just said. So it is important to present your ideas and thoughts as clearly as possible during your presentation. This video will give you a three step process to learn how to present her ideas clearly.
The 3 step process to present your ideas clearly
Step 1: Watch your language
The first thing you must do is use language and vocabulary that your audience can understand. That means the simpler the vocabulary and language you use, the better.
Step 2: Talk like a person
The second thing you should do is to write your presentation in a conversational way because that will make it easier for your audience to understand what you are saying. Your presentation is not a textbook and therefore, shouldn't sound like a textbook or something highly academic.
Step 3: Find a guinea pig
The last thing you should do is find someone to present your presentation to who is not familiar with your topic. This will help you figure out whether or not your presentation can be easily understood. A child or a grandparent can be a very good person to give a presentation to, and will force you to read evaluate your presentation based on the previous two steps.
