PowerPoint Delivery, Text or Pictures, Handouts: TJ Walker with Geetesh Bajaj

Here's another podcast that I recorded with TJ Walker. In this podcast, we explore several areas: How do you balance between the text slides vs. picture slides approaches? Is there more than one presentation scenario that needs different strategies? Or is there a one-glove-fits-all option that works for all presentations? What about handouts? And when do you provide them? Do you print them, or

How To Present A Fireside Chat In 4 Easy Lessons: by Jerry Weissman

Creative Commons: Image by National Archives and Records Administration In case you haven't heard, presentations delivered standing behind a lectern are out and fireside chats are in.

Should You Create Widescreen Slides

The same goof up happened but at yet another conference! The text size on the slide was teeny-weeny, and you could not see much, even if you squinted your eyes. This time, the problem was not that the presenter had used 8 point text on the slide; this text was 20 points, and that did not make it too small. Even then, you still could not read the text! Yet, the presenter was referring to

Jumping Slides

Every presenter wants to be in the same situation as Tom! He was happy while presenting because his audience seemed so engrossed in his talk. Why? That is because Tom had shared a story about ups and downs. He had expressed the contrast in an almost nail-biting environment. Yes, the story had served as an awesome introduction, and Tom had everyone’s attention. Could anything go wrong? Maybe,

Should You Create Widescreen Slides?

Now the slide by itself was quite passable but still there was a huge problem. Add to that the fact that the projection screen was probably quite small. But then I did project my slides on the same projection screen later and they did work. Clearly something was amiss. The problem was that a 16:9 widescreen slide was projected on a standard 4:3 projector thus making the slide's real estate

Kiosk Mode and Kiosk Assistant

Kiosk mode is a subset of Slide Show mode in PowerPoint – it’s been available since a very long time, and in past versions some options would behave differently than they do now – some users will no doubt complain that Kiosk mode was more useable before.

Answer The Question Asked: by Claudyne Wilder

What happens to presenters who are nervous when it's time for questions? Often the presenter is simply too nervous to listen to the query, and just starts talking without providing a specific response. Or the presenter may not address the question at all, instead speaking about something else that is a "hot topic" and defending a particular position. Now the presenter is really in trouble: the

What is Your Body Language Saying About You?: by Sandra Schrift

Your body language, nonverbal cues, tell a lot about how you perform at a job, career and on stage as a public speaker. Research suggests that nonverbal cues are more important than verbal ones. I came across one study that spoke about body language comprising 55% of the force of any response, whereas the verbal content only provides 7%, and "paralanguage," or the intonation, pauses and sighs

Smile and Relax: by Claudyne Wilder

What type of talks do you give? Are they about diseases? Are they about laying people off? Are they about problems in people's lives? If so, then you should not smile during your presentation. Smiling when discussing serious or life-threatening situations is obviously inappropriate. But most of us do not give those types of talks -- yet many people never, ever, crack a smile. But it's

Master a Five Minute Talk: My Road to Ignite Chicago by Bess Gallanis

The person who said 'talk is cheap' never imagined a five-minute presentation. Speaking at a clip of 160 words a minute, five minutes gets you about 800 words. With this kind of verbal economy at play, talk is not cheap. Of all the live presentation events, Ignite is one of the most popular.
