How “to fill up“ a public statement?
the Subject of public statements and skills of carrying out the presentations does not lose the relevance, and the huge number of articles and books is devoted to how competently to address public. I present you a new view on a problem of public statements where we will go “from the return“ and we will consider mistakes and miscalculations which are made by many speakers.
Having made everything according to these recommendations, you surely miss the chance, will lose potential adherents, clients or partners, will not be able to gain authority of public and will not inform of the important ideas hearts of the audience. So, how “to fill up“ a public statement.
1. Not to look at people.
you step on the stage, on you all eyes are turned, people wait for your ardent speech. Understanding it and being afraid of it, you take with yourself a pack of sheets of the written text, look down and begin reading aloud. You keep the eyes glued on the text since are concentrated on the literal report of information. You do not see people, do not control their state (some already sank into a sleep), do not take any actions in return.
2. Quietly and muffledly to speak.
you somewhere heard that you the more quietly will say, the more fixedly will listen to you. Especially if you are shipped in the text, then it works well much better. However it is not enough to speak quietly. It is necessary to speak without intonations, swallowing words and doing less pauses. Your public will quickly get tired and will lose interest.
3. Not to prepare for the presentation.
If 95% of speakers prepare for performance only the day before, then than you it is worse? Therefore leave any prejudices, do not stuff the head concerning contents of the speech. Improvise! Of course, you should not rehearse and work communications between the text and slides.
4. Not to understand material.
Many speakers do not trouble themselves detailed study of a subject of performance: do not analyze references, do not write out quotes and static data, do not study works of predecessors.
5. To forget the text.
the Audience estimates the speaker with special care at the first 90 seconds of his speech. For this reason important brightly and intriguingly to begin the presentation. However many speakers, stepping on the stage, forget words which turned in language 5 minutes ago, and begin to speak about something banal. Important episodes in the middle of the speech are also easily forgotten.
6. Not to answer questions.
to incite against itself audience, we recommend to ignore questions or, at least, to give vast answers that it was untempting to others.
7. To use filler words. Use of filler words leads
to the fact that people distract from the fact that you speak, and switch to calculation of the phrases or words parasitizing in your speech. At some audience even the irritability degree increases. Therefore if it is necessary to distract audience from an essence, use phrases “as if“, “so to speak“, “in principle“ etc. of
8. To look negligent.
“to fill up“ a public statement, sometimes one has enough unzipped trousers or spots on a shirt. That your status in audience aspired to zero, take care of that the clothes were shouting, crumpled and inaccurate.
9. To stand a back or sideways to audience. If you cost
a back or sideways, then you it is visible worse, is worse heard and the audience perceives your behavior as disrespectful. Many speakers, using the slide presentations probably remember it therefore they are developed to the screen and direct all the attention to it, but not to people.
10. To read the text from slides.
Most likely, speakers want to help the audience when begin to read the text placed on slides. The matter is that sometimes on the screen a lot of important information, is located the gathered small print therefore audience it can be inconvenient it to perceive. It is necessary to read literally and faltering in own text.
And finally “to fill up“ performance, it is possible just not to come to it.
This list I suggest you to save on mistakes which cost very much. Next time, when you will appear before public, you remember this “bad advice“ and do everything exactly the opposite if you want that your presentation made success.
