    Blog Pic 1.Things to do before your Presentation

    Know the material well.
    Learn about the audience. 
    Prepare speaking notes.
    Practice in advance.
    Rehearse the entire presentation out loud.
    Time the presentation and adjust the content to match the allotted time.
    If someone else is changing your slides or overheads, practice with him or her in advance.
    For formal presentations, visit the location beforehand become familiar with the surroundings.
    Arrive early, walk around the speaking area, stand at the podium, speak into the microphone, become familiar with equipment, and practice using your slides or overheads.

    2.Organizing your Deliverable 

    Remember to follow few basic structures: Tell the audience what you are going to say, say it, and tell the audience what you said.
    The most memorable parts of your presentation are its beginning and ending. If you lose the audience during your presentation, you can get them back at the end by reminding them of what you told them.
    Announce your topic clearly.
    State your objective up front.
    Give an outline of your presentation in your introduction; and Use transitions at the beginning of each major section.
    A good transition looks back at what you just spoke about and links it to what you are going to talk about next.

    3.The Initializing

    Very briefly tell the audience who you are and where you’re from, then gain their attention. 
    Try one of these:
    Use humor (with caution: Know your audience);
    Tell a personal anecdote;
    Create verbal imagery (“Let’s imagine for a second…”);
    Issue a challenge (“How many of our youth will we lose to AIDS in the next decade?”);
    Read a quote; or
    Provide a compelling fact.
    Now that you have their attention, “Tell the audience what you are going to say”—tell them your main points.

    4.The Middle 

    “Say it”—organize the presentation around your key points. New information and ideas tend to stick best in listeners’ minds when presented in series of three.

    5.The Ending

    “Tell the audience what you have said”:
    Summarize your main message by repeating the key points.
    Encourage action, where appropriate.
    Refer back to your opener.
    End on a positive note.
    Ask the audience whether they have questions.

    6.Want to ask something 

    Accept questions and comments graciously.
    Let audience members know that their questions are valid by saying things like, “That’s an excellent point,” or, “A very good question.  ”When you don’t know the answer, offer to find out and get back to the person asking the question. Try to offer related information that you do know.
