Careful planning & Preparation

Planning the first step for any kind of achievement. Even if you want to go outside with your friends, first you will make plan, that how you go and where you will go etc. Same is the case is here, you have to plan carefully for your presentation.

  • What is agenda?

Planning is the phase in which you just declare what you will do, but not elaborate. In the preparation phase you will elaborate each and every aspect which can occur during, before and after your presentation. You have research on you agenda and prepare it thoroughly to make effective presentation. There is the tip for you, before presentation. Represent yourself in front of mirror and start the whole presentation to maintain your confidence level and tone of your voice.

Try be maintain the sequence so that you can achieve your goal within time which will become cause of your effective presentation and sharp your skills.

Relative & Interested Content

Effective presentation is incomplete without relative content. You have to add-up some related information in your presentation to build the interest of audience. If you are presenting on any game then you have to add information and facts of other games for compare and similarities etc. You can add quotes, videos and images related to your topic to just increase the productivity of your content. Relative content is the best strategy to gain the attention of your audience.

Clear Structure

Structure of your content must be cleared for understanding. I mean not conclude before elaborating all points. If you will explain the last part of your presentation in the first impression no one can understand what you are doing. So remember structure of presentation is very important. You have to select the topic and sort them according to their complexity. Most complex topics are excluded to make much easier for audience to understand the concept of presentation.

Content Body

Mostly presenter when start their presentation, they have very rich slides. I mean rich text in their slides like they are introducing any book. But remember your slides must short and not rich with text. Use gestures instead of simple text to convey your point. Body of content not much complex that no one can understand what is written. Usage of images and video decrease the presentation complexity and increase effective presentation skills.

Good Communication Skills

Communication is biggest problem throughout the world. There are very few people which have good communication skills. With good communication you can convince anyone to do something you desire. There is very famous quote “Words can put you in someone heart, and can through you out from someone heart”. By this now you have to decide what you want to do with your communication power. Simple way to increase the communication skills you need to study and read books and listen other presenters. Be polite and humble toward others and use progressive tone not aggressive to make effective presentation.


When you are closed to finish your presentation, in the last you have to summarize all the major point which you have elaborated. It’s like a quick recap of whole presentation. This is very helpful to conclude the main point in the last.

Clear Supporting Documentation

Your documentation must be clear and relative to your content. If you’re presenting on Global Environment and you given documentation of some software then this is negative impression on your presentation. Sometimes presenter submits the documentation with some irrelevant data. You can add-up related data. Again the same point structure of documentation must be concrete and clear for understanding of anyone.
