-Professional Communication, part 2
-Presentation Do's and Don'ts
-Tips for Overcoming Anxiety/Appearing Confident
Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.
MBA Essential Tip:
When you give a speech or presentation, it's always possible that you'll get a question that you can not answer. Before you craft a presentation, try to anticipate what difficult questions you might hear. Find out the answers and practice your responses.
But if you don't know the answer, you must admit it. A great way to solve this problem is to ask your audience if anyone knows the answer. You can also suggest a good source to find the answer, or offer to research the issue and follow up with the individual or group.
Here's the best way to organize presentations-
1. Gain Attention
2. Why Listen
4. Preview Body
Main Point 1 with support, transition to 2C. Conclusion
Main Point 2 with support, transition to 3
Main Point 3 with support, transition to Conclusion
Review each Main Point
This episode is the 2nd in our 2-part series on Professional Communication. You'll learn about how to structure the Body and Conclusion of a great presentation.
I offer lots of suggestions about how to easily overcome anxiety, appear confident, and give a top-notch delivery.
