How to Give a Significant Presentation

  1. Write the script of your Lecture: Noun"Lecture"1. a formal talk on a serious or specialist subject given to a group of people, especially students:
    We went to a lecture on Italian art.
    Who’s giving the lecture this afternoon?

    2. an angry or serious talk given to someone in order to criticize their behavior:
    My dad gave me a lecture on the evils of alcohol last night.“>lecture in advance and rehearse your presentation several times before your main speech. This technique gives you an abundance of Confidence: Noun

    "confidence"/ˈkɒn.fɪ.dənts/ US /ˈkɑːn-/
    noun [U]
    the quality of being certain of your abilities or of having trust in people, plans, or the future:
    [+ to infinitive] He’s got the confidence to walk into a room of strangers and immediately start a conversation.
    She’s very timid, – completely lacking in (self-)confidence.
    I have every/complete confidence in her. She’ll be perfect for the job.
    [+ that] I don’t share your confidence that the market will improve next year.“>confidence, especially if you are a beginner.

  2. You can also prepare handouts for your presentation and distribute them among your attendees. A handout is a piece of paper with information, which is given to people who are attending a Lecture: Noun"Lecture"1. a formal talk on a serious or specialist subject given to a group of people, especially students:
    We went to a lecture on Italian art.
    Who’s giving the lecture this afternoon?

    2. an angry or serious talk given to someone in order to criticize their behavior:
    My dad gave me a lecture on the evils of alcohol last night.“>lecture, meeting, etc. A handout can help your attendees, particularly those whose listening ability is not fully developed, to communicate with your presentation.

  3. Do not recite the script before the audience. Do not forget that a lecturer is NOT a newscaster.
  4. Do not Utter: Verb "utter"/ˈʌt.əʳ/ US /ˈʌţ.ɚ/
    verb [T] SLIGHTLY FORMAL
    to say something or to make a sound with your voice:
    She sat through the whole meeting without uttering a word.
    /ˈʌt.əʳ/ US /ˈʌţ.ɚ/
    adjective [before noun]
    complete or extreme:
    utter confusion/misery/chaos
    utter nonsense/rubbish/drivel
    The meeting was a complete and utter waste of time.
    Lying back in the hot bath was utter bliss.“>utter words and sentences like a robot. In other words, do not memorize the script and echo it in the seminar room or conference hall. Your performance must be dynamic and vibrant.
  5. Your speech should not be monotonous. That is, the rising and falling of your tone should have moderate fluctuations in response to the salience of the points you are making in your speech.
  6. Do not stand motionless on the podium. Instead, Circulate: Verb"circulate/ˈsɜː.kjʊ.leɪt/ US /ˈsɝː-/

    verb [I or T]

    to move around or through something, or to make something move around or through something:

    Hot water circulates through the heating system.

    “>circulate on the stage if you think it can help your audience to pay more  to you.

  7. Involve your audience in one way or another to make sure they are following you. For example, ask some of them randomly about their personal opinions on the points you are presenting.
  8. Have eye contact with all of your audience, and not just some of them. Remember that  carries so much weight in giving a successful speech.
  9. Recognize your audience (age, gender, , number, etc.) and the context (social, cultural, educational, etc.) in which you should give a Lecture: Noun"Lecture"1. a formal talk on a serious or specialist subject given to a group of people, especially students:
    We went to a lecture on Italian art.
    Who’s giving the lecture this afternoon?

    2. an angry or serious talk given to someone in order to criticize their behavior:
    My dad gave me a lecture on the evils of alcohol last night.“>lecture.

  10. Pilot your speech in advance. That is, give your presentation to your friends, colleagues, classmates, teachers, etc. before the due time and ask for their "Feedback"information or statements of opinion about something, such as a new product, that provide an idea of whether it is successful or liked:
    Have you had any feedback from customers about the new soap?
    positive/negative feedback

    Feedback is the breakfast of champions.

    “>feedback. Remember that “"Feedback"information or statements of opinion about something, such as a new product, that provide an idea of whether it is successful or liked:
    Have you had any feedback from customers about the new soap?
    positive/negative feedback

    Feedback is the breakfast of champions.

    “>feedback is the breakfast of champions“.

  11. If Possible: Adjective "possible"/ˈpɒs.ə.bļ/ US /ˈpɑː.sə-/
    adjective [+ (that)]
    that might or might not happen:
    It’s possible (that) Mira might turn up tonight.
    "Do you think he’ll end up in prison?" "It’s very possible."
    That’s one possible solution to the problem.“>possible, depending on your audience, presentation context and Topic: Noun

    "topic/ˈtɒp.ɪk/ US /ˈtɑː.pɪk/ noun [C]

    a subject which is discussed, written about or studied:

    Our discussion ranged over various topics, such as acid rain and the hole in the ozone layer.

    noun [U]
    the ability to be amused by things, the way in which people see that some things are amusing or the quality of being amusing:
    He’s got a great sense of humour (= he is very able to see things as amusing).
    I must say I find his schoolboy (= childish) humour rather tiresome.“>humor moderately. Note that you must not overuse it.

  12. Use visual aids, namely pictures, graphs, diagrams, short video clips, etc. and prepare relevant and expressive slides on Microsoft PowerPoint to add flesh to the bones of your presentation.
