How can you memorize your presentation?

When we prepare a speech, especially when there are stakes involved, we would like to free ourselves from our notes in order to give a fully open sincere and committed speech.  Last week we saw how presentation notes can play their support role effectively. Today we will discuss memory techniques that will help you be…

Presenting with or without notes?

This Thursday tip requires a short preamble. Indeed, with the “typical” presentations we run across being are very heavily overloaded with text, bullet points, tables and pie charts, the issue of notes doesn’t arise to the extent that it is the slide itself that plays the role of reminder.  The goal here is not to…

Does storytelling work in every country?

The globalization of markets has also led to the globalization of presentations.  It is not uncommon today to prepare a presentation in France that you’ll give in Germany to an English audience.  Even though speaking in public is never trivial, presenting in a language other than your own, to an audience of a different culture,…

Dare to be audacious in your presentations!

When it comes to preparing an upcoming presentation, it is common to come across people who seek at all costs to distinguish themselves from others, to completely break away from what is normally done and creating a buzz, with one goal in mind: making an impact.

It’s true that if you don’t rehearse you can finish your presentation the night before or even the morning of the big…

The TED format in a company!

Who hasn’t heard of TED Talks?  It’s hard to imagine, since the format has become so popular and is now on everyone’s lips. It must be said that most of the time the subjects are very exciting, and the speakers are often brilliant.  Created in 1984, the aim of this conference format is to share…

The effects of stage fright on diction

We often hear the advice to young awkward actors: “It’s easy, you just have to believe it!” On the face of it, one could say that the same applies to a speaker who has trouble expressing his message. Unfortunately, it is not so simple. Because the slightest emotion, the smallest doubt, the shortest gap in…

And what if trivial were indispensable?

The question we’re asking this week could almost appear provocative, given how dense the presentations you have to endure everyday are! They seem built as if each minute was vital, as if the amount of time given to a presentation should always be filled to the brim. The most symptomatic sign is certainly the use…
