Presenting well in the seminar room is every speaker’s main goal. However, even good presenters feel shaky when they are in a seminar room in front of an audience, especially if they are ill-prepared. The following are a few tips on how to make your presentation interesting and engaging:
It’s all about the topic
The topic is the most important thing. Pick a topic that will interest the audience and conduct extensive research on it.
Know your audience
It is important to get to know the profile of the people attending your seminar. Are they beginners or experts or a mix? From here you can estimate how much time to spend on each portion of your topic. It will also help you decide whether you want to keep a formal tone or an informal tone during your presentation in the seminar room.
Use quality presentation materials
The best presenters ensure that their presentation material supports everything that they talk about. If you present data, make sure it is well researched and correct. You do not want someone in the seminar room to point out a grave error in your presentation that could have been avoided with proper preparation.
