While making a presentation it is essential to sustain the energy levels and voice modulations right till the end. Some presenters, after a strong start, start winding down and sometimes resort to that cardinal sin – reading from the slides towards the end. This effectively disengages the audience and may even make them hostile to the presenter. The way to avoid this could be to make the presentation content concise and be harsh in moving slides to the appendix. Follow this up with preparing through verbalization right till the end of the presentation and not only till the first few slides. The conclusion where you summarize what you shared with the audience is also as important as the start. Hence the importance of maintain in presentation skills.

In a presentation, it is very important to maintain eye contact with audience. This helps in establishing a connect with the audience and also helps in understanding whether audience is able to relate to the subject and the speaker. Maintaining eye contact also helps in keeping audience engaged and interested.

All formal trainings on presentation skills, emphasize on maintaining the right visual connect with the audience. Here visual connect is related to the body language of the speaker. Right visual connect i.e. body language defines how audience is going to perceive the speaker and whether audience pay attention and remain interested.

Thank you for the excellent training Anubha, which was of value to each one of us.  I have given below the pointers to keep in mind while preparing for the presentation

1.      Understand your topic for presentation

a.      Has this topic been addressed before by the presenter, how was the format, what was discussed

b.      Plan the content, add or delete text as per the current scenario

c.      Design the talk points as per relevance

2.      Understand your audience

a.      What is the demographic of the audience

b.      Map demographic to the topic, do we need to make it simpler or make it complex

c.      Has the audience attended similar presentation, if yes then tweak your presentation to make it stand out from others

d.      Is the audience such that they will raise many questions, if yes then review your content and prepare for all possible answers, know of black holes which can cause an endless loop

e.      Prepare to handle questions/comments from the audience which can cause delays in your presentation

3.      Format

a.      Prepare your presentation as per the anticipated mood of the room, formal, semi – formal, interactive etc

b.      Do we take questions during the presentation or afterwards

c.      Can we use props, anecdotes to engage audience, if yes then map it to the audience and plug them into your ppt

4.      Preparation

a.      Prepare your ppt and get an opinion from a peer

b.      Practice your timing in front of a mirror/dummy audience

c.      Prepare cue cards if you think your memory might deceive you

d.      Arrive early to the room and check settings, check for space for you to walk, plan your movements, visualize your engagement with the audience

e.      Do a tech check to ensure your presentation runs smooth and glitch free, ensure you have the right hardware and software alighment

f.       Check if you need a microphone or would you like to address the audience without it depending on the size of audience and the room

5.      Fall back/Plan B

a.      Chalk out your fall back option, what to do if one of the components does not work

If the audience does not participate or is over-enthusiastic and you anticipate you will need more time

If the screens black out, do we have white boards/flipcharts as a backup. If there are back up options then how are they going to be used

If there is a total black out would you want to carry on or stop for power to be back

In the middle of your presentation if there are interruption from external forces like a server serving drinks or attendees using phone, how are you going to address those

If there is a delay in the start how are you going to address the gathering while they wait


“Preparation is the most critical part of making a successful presentation. Its constituents are:

Objective: Clarity on the purpose of the presentation, its objective, and expected outcome(s) are important for a perfect presentation.

Subject: Clarity on the subject regarding one’s knowledge level, limitations if any and any extra effort required to acquire more knowledge on the subject.

Audience: Audience/Group size, age range, gender, captive / voluntary audience, subject knowledge level, expected acceptability of humor.

Place: Venue/Room size, seating arrangements, required equipment availability, room acoustics & lighting

Length: Allowed durations, place in the order (Avoid last place)”


According to me the topic has two part to it. First being the content second being the skill needed by the presenter.

The presentation content:

1-The important point to implement is the draft boarding story which you want to share with the audience.

2-The story has to be fluid and the ppt is just a means to share the thoughts and use as a pointer to your thought which you want to convey.

3-The other part which you need to take care is spell check, font, color, projector and visual aids.

The key skills need to adopt while presentation:

1-The stance and posture which is required by presenter for the audience which creates an impact and a repo with the audience

2-The second most important skill is listening patiently and respect the audience question even how silly it may sound.


Implementation is the crux of every plan and the single most decisive point of failure or success! To start with, one should have a checklist of actions required, bifurcated as most important and good to have items. Creating this checklist itself requires lots of introspection and peer review. My starting point will be a self-assessment of  strength and areas of improvement, followed by an action plan (mostly time bound) to work on areas of improvements. Parallelly,  getting a peer review done will help with another perspective. The checklist should have 3 parts, pre-presentation, during presentation and post presentation items.

This implementation checklist should evolve with time and never be used as “ONE FIT” solution for all!

PRESENTATION SKILLS RESPECT:  By Arjun Vishwanathan | Associate Director -IDC-9811 912000 <>

RESPECT is the one of the most critical pillars of a good presentation. Respect spans the following;

Objective : Respect towards the audience starts from showing respect to the objective for which the presentation is being made.

Volume: Respect is shown by not unnecessarily adding slides and being succinct.


–       Learning the names in the audience and referring to them by their names

–       Making eye contact when speaking with someone during a presentation

–       Giving both sides of the room equal attention and eye contact while presenting

Speech: Avoiding colloquial words and/or expletives when speaking or at exclamations/impact points.
