Tips and Tricks for an Amazing Presentation!

Tips and Tricks for an Amazing Presentation!

Preparing for presentations is a major focus of what I do, given that I am a full-time trainer, demo master, and voice of TopLine Results. Surprisingly, at one point in time, I used to be terrified of speaking with people or presenting in any fashion. However, TopLine Results has taught me many tips and tricks for presenting more effectively and alleviating the stress that comes with it. Additionally, working with Dynamics 365, Zoho CRM and HubSpot on technical aspects has helped me progress as well. So, I'd like to share some of my tips and tricks on how to give an amazing presentation.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

What do I mean by this? Something I’ve learned and have been told by a lot of people is not to stress over the fine little details of a presentation. Make sure you have a big picture ready to go. Then start to work on the minor pieces of information.

Be Confident in Your Expertise

When training new users or giving demonstrations to prospective customers, you are the expert in the room. Just remember, you know the subject you are discussing, and you should feel confident in showing it.

If You Do Not Know the Answer, Write it Down

You may get many questions during your presentations. It’s something you cannot prevent. Sometimes, you may get a question you cannot confidently answer. If that’s the case, you should never guess, instead WRITE IT DOWN!  Tell the person who asked the question, “I am going to write it down and get back to you with the correct answer”. Of course, you can give that response your own flare, but something to that effect will work. Just make sure to follow-through and find, then share, the answer!

Be Prepared

Based on what type of presentation you are giving, being fully prepared and knowledgeable about your product(s) and service(s) are key to a successful presentation. Having a story, practicing the topic, and running through your presentation multiple times will make sure you are fully prepared for what you are presenting. Consider blocking calendar time to ensure you are ready to go.
