Quick Tips To Feel Comfortable Making Virtual Presentations In English – Part II

?? In the video we explain 7 tips that have helped many professionals in our training:

✅ Audience – reflect and think about what are your audience’s main problems. What do they need from your presentation?

✅ ‘Best thinking’ – do your ‘best thinking’ for ideas in your own language then write key ideas into English.

✅ Know your content – read out loud your content a few times until you own it and it feels natural to you.

✅ Practice, practice and practice – confidence comes from practising and getting feedback. Video record yourself several times to see yourself presenting in English.

✅ Anticipate – anticipate your audience’s main questions and objections. Write answers to these and practice saying them.

✅ Mind mapping – use visual mind maps to organise and structure your presentation ideas, content and also the Q&A.

✅ Pauses – use pauses after key points to emphasise and focus your audience’s attention on these key points.
