This presentation was prepared and uploaded as an application requirement for an MBA program.
Kindly note that the author has a PhD in Breast Cancer Metastasis (cell and molecular biology) from the American University of Beirut (AUB) and is not specialized in the field of public speaking. It is only an activity that he enjoys doing and people think he does it well. Accordingly, the herby included tips are mainly based on several successful personal experiences.
The sarcastic simple approach used in the presentation makes it fun and accessible to students, young researchers and businessmen, junior consultants and beginners in different fields. These tips would be useful when delivering a public speech, a thesis defense, a business presentation etc...

Public Speaking Tips from a Beginner

  1. 1. Public Speaking Tips from a Beginner Khaled I. Ghattass, PhD Admissions Committeeme
  2. 2. You have probably attended hundreds of BORING presentations…. One More Won’t Hurt You!!!
  3. 3. Public speaking has 5 basic elements: - The Speaker: That’s you - The Subject: That’s what you will be talking about - The Audience: That’s who will be listening (or sleeping) as you speak - The Medium: That’s what you will be using to deliver the speech - The Environment: Where and when are you delivering the speech Let’s just take the basics from the pros.
  4. 4. Tip # 1-Be Well Prepared… “I wish I can tell you Winston Churchill, Steve Jobs, Bill Clinton or Robin Williams did not prepare for their speeches, but they did … ” Two non avoidable preparations: 1- Know the subject very well… 2- Know your audience very well… 3- Know how to present the subject equally well… Let’s assume you are done with numbers 1 and 2 move forward!!!
  5. 5. Tip # 2- Invest in Great Openings… “If you make them laugh at the beginning, they will stay awake hoping you will make them laugh again” - Its nicer if someone else introduces you … - An early joke reduces tension and anxiety … - Laughter connects you to the audience …
  6. 6. “Its all about Confidence and Spontaneity, if you can fake these two you will do great” Tip # 3- Look Confident… - Over preparation is the way to confidence … - One can be prepared and seem Spontaneous ... - It always sounds nicer inside your head, that’s why you should rehearse LOUDLYYYY!!!
  7. 7. Tip # 4- Get Emotional Involvement “Some things are just contagious by nature, if you sneeze people sneeze, if you laugh they laugh, and…. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED , THEY WILL BE INTERESTED!!!”
  8. 8. I. Show us an activity you enjoy doing. Tell us how you think it contributes to your personal and professional development Tip # 4 Emotional InvolvementTip # 5- Tell Stories… - Prepare 2 or 3 interesting stories to share… - It is OK if the stories are not very closely related to the topic, sometimes it is even better if they are not… - Know exactly when to tell your stories… “ Most probably, stories will be the only thing your audience will remember…”
  9. 9. Tip # 6: Manage Your Time “No one has ever walked out of a presentation complaining that it was short” -Be very clear and concise -Have a single Message per slide -Never ever exceed your allocated time
  10. 10. Tip # 7- Collect Instant Feedback… “Don’t wait until it is over to fix it” - Maintain eye contact with the audience - When you see half closed eyes, speed up or engage the audience with a question!!!
  11. 11. Tip # 8- Use Visuals and Body Language… “If you have something important to say, don’t say it,… show it” - Use a lot of visuals, reduce text - Act normal, walk around, drink water - Rehearse your body language
  12. 12. Tip # 9- Don’t trust Technology “It’s already a bad sign when you start with: Can you hear me? Is it working? Is there a technician over here?” - Make sure it is working before the presentation - Carry back ups with you - If you are allowed to rehearse on site, DO!!
  13. 13. Tip # 10- Invest in Great Closures… “As contradicting as it may seem, but open ended closures are the best” - Often discussions start when you close, so you have a chance to direct discussions and questions the way you prefer -After summering your talk in “One Take Home Message”, close with a story or a question
  14. 14. Rewards of Public Speaking “3 out of 4 people have GLASSOPHOBIA (fear of public speaking). If you do it well, you are that interesting 4th guy who does not have it ” - Brings Self Satisfaction !!! - Boosts Confidence !!! - Enhances Communication Skills !!! - Better Interviews - Better Meetings - Better Relationships 1 more Slide
  15. 15. The End “A good speech should be like a woman's skirt; long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest.” Winston Churchill - Widens Your Network !!! - Increases Observational Skills !!! - Boosts Your Memory - Brings Publicity Rewards of Public Speaking
