Description

When I give a presentation that’s scheduled to be an hour long, if I start at ten thirty, I end at eleven thirty. If I give a ten-minute presentation, I end exactly ten minutes later, and if I am supposed to deliver a four-hour presentation that starts at one o’clock, my audience can count on being able to walk out the door at five. A good presenter learns to do that.

I’m going to teach you how to calibrate your message so no matter what happens in your presentation, you can get it back on track.

It is possible you are simply speaking too slowly. Many presenters speak slowly because they think their audience will better understand what it is they have to say. To an extent, this is true. It’s effective to speak slowly when you’re covering something that’s very important or that might be hard to understand. But if you speak too slowly, or speak slowly too often, you may bore your audience.

You may be surprised when I tell you the primary reason may not be that you are speaking too slowly or have too much to say, but that you are using too many words to say what you want to. Editors know that to improve anything you have written, the best place to start is by cutting it down

A little more than half of the time, people discover that their presentation is too short. From your point of view, this is undesirable because you will not have made full use of the time allotted to you. From the audience’s point of view, this is undesirable because you will have made them feel shortchanged.

Manage Audience Question Periods
1 Lecture 12:29

It is essential you build question periods into your planning. Imagine shopping for a car. The salesman is discussing its features and terms, but when you ask a question, he says, “You can’t ask any questions until I’ve finished what I plan to say.” You’d go to a different car dealer. Why? Because you feel this one isn’t meeting your needs. Similarly, you will lose your audience if you don’t respond to their questions in a timely manner.

Answering questions may benefit you as well as the audience members. A question may give you an opportunity to provide a fuller explanation of one of your points. This may make your presentation more helpful to the audience and more successful for you.

Generally, presenters tell the audience to hold questions when they’re afraid they will run out of time before they’ve finished. If you plan properly, this won’t happen. In fact, you can use questions to make sure you finish on time

Adjust as You Go
2 Lectures 12:55

If you discover at your first or second takeaway you’re running long, immediately begin to shave a minute or two off each of the subsequent takeaways and see if you can get back on track. It is better to make adjustments as you go than to postpone your cuts; the later you begin to trim, the more drastically your presentation will be affected. Once you have some experience, you will get better at doing minor cutting here and there without getting anxious and catching the audience’s attention.

Or you can rely on the easiest, quickest fix of all...

Adjust If You are Behind Schedule
08:14

Once you find out you’re ahead of schedule, add a minute or two to each of the agenda items that follow. Again, be sure to do this by checking your markers early in the presentation so that your presentation is less dramatically affected and you do not have to figure out how to add a whole lot at the end. Once you have some experience, you can do this without getting anxious and without the audience noticing.

Another thing you can do is add a directional or two to your blueprint.  Say, “Write that down” periodically. The learners who need to write things down in order to absorb them will do so and that will buy you time.
