Proven Tips To Boost Your Public Speaking And Presentation Skills (Part 18)

It was another fruitful visit back to the Club that I am currently mentoring. At Nee Soon East Toastmasters Club last night, we saw an increase in the number of people attending the meeting. I was glad people are becoming more aware of the need to communicate well.

A total of 5 projects were presented, included those from the Advanced manuals. This indicated that Toastmasters members in the Club are enthusiastically taking the opportunity to improve their speaking skills.

As usual, I provided a number of tips that the speakers can take note to enhance their future presentations:

1. Select impactful visual pictures to highlight the severity of the situation instead of a mere faraway image.

2. Move the props aside whenever you do not need them instead of keeping it within the audience’s view.

3. Your standing position is important. Never ignore the side audience. Plan a certain central position before you begin your presentation.

    I like the tips about the props – many speakers make the mistake of leaving them in view which takes the audience’s attention away from you.

    Hi James,

    Definitely! Sometimes the presenters may forget it’s the audience that are watching their presentations and hence get distracted by the eyeful props.

    If we can be more conscious of this potential oversight and correct it, the presentations will become more impactful.

    Thanks for your comments and have an Excel Beyond Excellence life!

    Warmest wishes,
