keynote speech

 

From LifeHack, Amy Johnson offers 8 terrific recommendations for making a great presentation.  She writes:

1. State your main points at the beginning, middle and end of your presentation

Repeatedly going back to your main points will help the audience to stay focused – and they are also more likely to remember the points later, too. Start by introducing the points that you want to make and then flesh them out in the middle of your presentation. Finish your presentation by reminding the audience about your points.

2. Practice

If you know your presentation off by heart, you will feel in control and you will worry less about something going wrong. Read your full presentation out every day in the mirror so that you feel fully comfortable sharing it with other people.

3. Do a run-through on stage beforehand

Visit the venue before your presentation and ask if you can walk through the place where you will be presenting. This means that the setting will be familiar to you, so it will be easier for you to relax.

You can also decide where to walk on from and where to stand, so that you can clear your mind and focus fully on the presentation.
