sei unterhaltsam


                          Reden und Präsentationen sollten
                          informativ und unterhaltsam sein

Blickkontakt

                          Halten Sie Blickkontakt zu jedem im
                          Raum

                          Fokussieren Sie nicht nur die erste
                          Reihe, nicht nur die
                          Entscheidungsträger

                          Behandeln Sie alle „fast“ gleich

nicht vorlesen!

                          ist unprofessional

                          zeigt das Sie vom Thema keine Ahnung
                          haben

                          Sie verlieren den Kontakt zur Gruppe

                          demonstriert Nervosität und „kein

Reden heißt
              Geschichten erzählen
                          wichtig für den Start

                          wichtig für längere Präsentationen

                          Geschichten, Anekdoten, einbauen zur
                          Verdeutlichung

                          Geschichten sind emotional,
                          verbessern die Beziehung zur Gruppe

  1. 10-20-30 Rule – This is a slideshow rule offered by Guy Kawasaki. This rule states that a powerpoint slide should have no more than 10 slides, last no longer than 20 minutes and have no text less than 30 point font. He says it doesn’t matter whether your idea will revolutionize the world, you need to spell out the important nuggets in a few minutes minutes, a couple

  5. Be Entertaining – Speeches should be entertaining and informative. I’m not saying you should act like a dancing monkey when giving a serious presentation. But unlike an e-mail or article, people expect some appeal to there emotions. Simply reciting dry facts without any passion or humor will make people less likely to pay attention.

  11. Eye Contact – Match eye contact with everyone in the room. I’ve also heard from salespeople that you shouldn’t focus all your attention on the decision maker since secretaries and assistants in the room may hold persuasive sway over their boss.

  14. 15 Word Summary – Can you summarize your idea in fifteen words? If not, rewrite it and try again. Speaking is an inefficient medium for communicating information, so know what the important fifteen words are so they can be repeated.

  20. Don’t Read – This one is a no brainer, but somehow Powerpoint makes people think they can get away with it. If you don’t know your speech without cues, that doesn’t just make you more distracting. It shows you don’t really understand your message, a huge blow to any confidence the

  23. Speeches are About Stories – If your presentation is going to be a longer one, explain your points through short stories, quips and anecdotes. Great speakers know how to use a story to create an emotional connection between ideas for the audience.

  26. Project Your Voice - Nothing is worse than a speaker you can’t hear. Even in the high-tech world of microphones and amplifiers, you need to be heard. Projecting your voice doesn’t mean yelling, rather standing up straight and letting your voice resonate on the air in your lungs rather than in the throat to produce a clearer sound.
