Imagine reaching more people with your passion by preparing and creating the right things to say in the right way. Instead of losing your audience, you’ll learn how to get them to take action in their lives.
To engage your audience members, the theme of your presentation must appear to have value to them and be in line with their goals. It is essential you know what specific topics will be of interest. The best way is to ask them.
Create Your Tasks
Go through the takeaways one by one. Begin by asking yourself, “Does the audience know how to do this?” This is unlikely, of course, since if the audience already knew how to make those takeaways happen, they wouldn’t be at your presentation.
So you need to come up with tasks—procedures or actions that make the takeaways possible. I suggest that a presenter come up with about three tasks for each takeaway. You describe the tasks in exactly the same way you described the takeaways.
Create Your Subtasks
Once you’ve defined
the tasks, go over each one individually and ask yourself if the people in your
audience would know how to carry it out. If not, then you have to come up with
at least one
subtask. Go through the
same process as in creating the task. Use an action verb, as few words as
possible, and clear and simple language.
Create Your Examples
The example is the final level of the task hierarchy. A good
presenter gets to it as quickly as possible. It is the most powerful way to
ensure that your audience knows how to do what you suggest.
Create Your Title
Your title is key. It’s the main mystery. It’s what motivates your audience to attend your presentation in the first place—an immediately useful, measurable outcome or benefit they will take away from the presentation as a whole.
Once you have figured out your takeaways, you have defined exactly what your presentation is about, so you are ready to summarize them in one phrase: the title. Go through the same process as he did in creating the takeaways, with slight modifications.
Create Your Takeaway Hooks
Telling people how you will meet their emotional needs—how you will relieve their pain points and enhance their pleasure points—is what makes them crave what you have to say.
Create Your Main Presentation Hook
Once you have the hooks for each takeaway, you can create the main hook for the entire presentation. Just as the main title was a summary of your takeaways, the main hook is a summary of your takeaway hooks. Find it this way.
First, review the takeaway hooks. It might help you to underline the key words that correspond to pain points or pleasure points. For each takeaway hook, underline the key words that correspond to the most powerful pain points and pleasure points of your audience. Then add the title of your presentation at the very end of the main hook.
Map Out Your Message
Once you have created your irresistible menu and your tantalizing core content, your next task is to combine your words with slides and create a PowerPoint presentation.
The primary need of your audience is to feel safe with you and among their peers, so that’s what you must deal with first. Once they trust you, they will feel safe. The best way to start is with a thoroughly rehearsed strong opening.
To connect with your audience, even before you say a word, you have to make an impressive physical impression. To do that, your first need to practice your presentation the right way. Prepare to take your game to the next level and even cue yourself without losing your audience.
If you tell me you have a panic attack the moment you stand in front of your audience, I’ll bet I know what your problem is. And—though all these things matter—it’s not because of how you’re standing or that your voice is cracking or that you’re talking too loud or too fast or that you’re sweating. It’s not because of anything you are doing. It’s what you are not doing.
You haven’t kept your focus. You’ve forgotten that the presentation isn’t about you; it’s about your audience. When you’re meeting the audience members for the first time, when you’re making that first impression, how you’re feeling and what you’re doing doesn’t matter as much as how they’re doing and how they’re feeling. You should be concentrating on their feelings and their needs.
