Learn How to Deliver an Award-Winning Presentation
By Donna O’Toole
Autumn is almost here, and it’s that time of the awards season when many of the awards finals are looming – that means you could be in the process of preparing your all-important presentation.
If you’ve made it through to the shortlisting stage – WELL DONE – you’ve already achieved a great deal by being recognised for all of the brilliant work that you and your business have accomplished.
Now, it’s your opportunity to shine in the spotlight as you deliver an award-winning presentation to the judging panel of experts. Typical lasting around 15 minutes, you’ll need to consider all of these vital components to give yourself the best chance of success:
- How will I plan my presentation?
- Which presentation tools will I use?
- How will I select a presentation team?
- Which winning content will I create and use?
- How will I present with confidence?
How you come across during your presentation is extremely important. As speechmaker Carl W Buehner once said:
“They may forget what you SAID, but they will never forget how you made them FEEL.”
So… how do you know where to start?
