Top 5 Presenting Tips For Non Native English Speakers

👉🏻 Here are our top 5 presenting tips from our training to help you:

✅ Manage your nerves (e.g. be kind to yourself, be patient and take deep breathes 30 minutes before your presentation to manage your nerves)

✅ Speak in short sentences (e.g. use short sentences to keep your key messages clear and concise and for your audience to easily follow what you say)

✅ Simple stories and specific examples (e.g. simple stories are easy to explain. Specific examples help you to explain and expand key points)

✅ Make it easy for your audience (e.g. project your voice, slow down, use pauses, emphasise key ideas and use a speaking speed of 130 to 150 words per minute recommended by TED.com)

✅ Check and clarify (e.g. interact with your audience, check they are following you and clarify key points. It shows your audience that you’re confident and have empathy)
