We believe high performance teams rarely develop naturally and the building blocks required to create optimal team performance needs to be defined, managed and monitored. QL has worked with diverse industry sectors ranging from engineering, construction, IT, project management, oil and gas, mining, legal and public administration. Have you ever been sat in the audience whilst a nervous-looking, unprepared and slightly sweaty person has had to ‘fill’ an unplanned gap in the schedule? And so the filling becomes an everlasting ramble on a topic that in reality only 50% of the audience is even remotely interested in…and so the frustration begins. The remedy is exactly the same one that you might use to placate an impatient child – distraction. When acting as the filler, distraction involves getting the audience involved in the process of filling.
It’s tough to become impatient if your brain is distracted by being asked to focus elsewhere. A 15 second introduction session – ask each audience member to stand up and quickly introduce themselves and their business to the room. The brainstorm – split the room into four groups and ask each group to brainstorm on an area of the event that could be improved. The burning question(s) – set up four flip charts or large pieces of paper around the room with an area that the speaker is due to cover.
When your speaker arrives, they will have four lists of questions that they need to answer.
If there is no value to the audience, they will quickly realise that they are wasting time, which quickly leads to the dreaded frustration!
It’s tough to become a better speaker when the focus is on avoiding calamity and catastrophe and simply surviving when we have to speak. The client then begins to understand what I am getting at and envisions where they would like to be in the future. Looking forward and creating a vision of the speaker that we wish to become gives us a goal to aim for. Instead of simply surviving our speech, we are now focusing our efforts on excelling at it as a confident and articulate speaker!
As with all things in life, having a positive and clear goal gives us something to work towards and increases the likelihood of achieving it.
If you are regularly think about just surviving the speaking shakes or stutters, take a few minutes to reframe your goals as a target, not a survival strategy. You’ll be amazed at it changes your approach and the results from your next presentation! I had to work to make sure I made the most of the opportunity I was given and not let anyone down. Paying such a large amount of money to an internationally recognised university, I never considered that in fact, they may be the ones that let me down. The press today writes a lot about the quality of students that our higher education system is producing, and how so often many of them are not ready for the world of work. The criticism often levelled at higher education is that it teaches our students the knowledge required, but often leaves them short of the practical skills with which to employ their new found knowledge.
How much is my world class expertise worth, if I cannot communicate my new found knowledge in the workplace?
Not only were we paralysed by fear, we were struck dumb by the fact that we had absolutely no idea how to conduct ourselves and communicate confidently to a large group.
The final insult was that this presentation for which we had been given no formal training formed 60% of our overall grade for the module. It came as no surprise on results day that the module in question delivered poor results across the board.
Imagine not only the increased achievement by students if universities provided much deeper and relevant presentation skills training, but also the efficiencies that this could bring to our economy as a whole.
I can think of organisations and colleagues that are famed for having a meeting to agree to have a meeting and I am sure that you can too.
I was fortunate that by this point in my life I had undertaken a hell of a lot of self study and practice to try and improve my public speaking. Not everyone was so lucky, and the speaking experiences (and subsequent failures) that they had at university and job interviews set them up with the well-known and openly embraced fear of public speaking that 90% of the workforce now have as standard.
With our current provisions for public speaking both in the secondary and higher education curriculum, why would we expect anything else?
The same applies to public speaking, but instead of death, your failure results in a lifelong fear of presenting to a group. Yet still a lot of universities are covering presentation skills with just a single lecture.
Add to this that presenting, like most skills in life, is best taught by an expert (a swim coach would probably get me swimming quicker than instruction from my novice mother) that can engage and inspire an audience, then the well-meaning lecturer delivering a single session on presentation skills does not appear to be anywhere near an adequate solution. The second step is then the creation and delivery of a sustained and relevant presentation skills education for students. Ok, so that’s my passionate presentation skills plea, I would love to hear your thoughts, experiences and ideas regarding presentation skills within our education system. The title of your presentation has the power to make or break your speech before you have even begun.
In the conference programme, it may be the factor that makes them choose you over the other talk that is on at the same time. When announced by the MC, your audience will either await your first words with baited breath, or look forward to your final words with unbridled joy. It is therefore incredibly important that you get your title right; to grab the attention of your audience, engage their minds and set a positive expectation for your speech.
If you were to try and sell me the pen you have been writing with today, you wouldn’t grab my attention, or convince me to buy, simply by telling me about its features. Instead, you would highlight to me the benefits that owning the pen could bring into my life. If your title can encourage everyone to attend, then you can persuade them of your opinion by delivering a constructive argument in your presentation. When the conference organiser asks you for your title, it’s so easy to look at what everyone else is doing and adopt a title that follows the same format. Curiosity-generating titles are great, but if they are taken too far they become completely incomprehensible to your audience. Once you have written your title, do a quick sense check to ensure that someone who knows nothing about your talk apart from the title can still grasp what area or topic you will be talking about!
Many people fear a question and answer (Q&A) session more than having to deliver the presentation itself. For them, it represents the unknown, the uncontrolled and therefore, an opportunity for things to go terribly wrong. In reality, the Q&A session is an opportunity to demonstrate your expertise even further and to double check that your audience have received your presentation message loud and clear.
A good Q&A session can energise an audience, inspire them and leave a positive memory of your presentation.
After all, your objective is to cover everything that your audience needs to know to persuade them of your opinion.
There’s no quicker way to destroy your position as the expert in the room than through long, waffling, unintelligible answers to simple questions. If this happens to you, don’t be afraid to ask your questioner to confirm exactly what their question is before attempting to answer it. The problem is, if you praise one question highly, what does that say about the rest of the questions that you are asked – are they not as good? It’s a little thing, but one that I have personally seen influence the willingness of an audience to ask questions. The very best presentations are those that involve their audience and become a conversation rather than just a lecture. Your audience are seeking clear communication of great ideas, give them this with a structured, bite size answer.
Asking the person who asks the question to stand up is another great way to ensure that everyone in the room can clearly hear the question that is being asked.
This is especially useful if you are delivering a long presentation or if your topic is a sensitive one. Anonymous question submission using a post box at the front of the stage is a great way to take questions on sensitive topics that the audience might not feel comfortable standing up and asking in front of the whole room.
To avoid an awkward silence, prepare a few questions of your own regarding opinion on the topic that you spoke about. Your presentation should always end on a high with a clear final thought for your audience. Instead, prepare a short conclusion for after the Q&A session and ask your host if you can deliver it once all of the questions have been asked. Ultimately you want your presentation to inspire your audience, start conversations and ignite ideas. These movies attract millions of people during the warmest months of the year to sit silently in a darkened room watching what is basically just a series of flashing lights on a screen.
It’s the build up to a summer blockbuster that helps to get bums on seats in the cinema.
Presentation lesson: Your pre-presentation actions should all help to build anticipation in your audience and get them excited about what you have to say. Presentation lesson: If we want our audience to believe in us, then we need to show the depth of our character when presenting.
I’m pretty sure that I can name at least ten movies that looked amazing in the trailers, but were completely let down by MASSIVE plot holes (Source Code anyone?). Presentation lesson: You should always do your best to make your presentation a fully immersive experience for your audience. If your audience are rearranging chairs when they arrive or distracted by a fluttering blind whilst you speak, you don’t have their full engagement. Presentation lesson: Your presentation needs to accommodate an audience that might at times be distracted. You smile back at your audience, confident in the knowledge that this presentation is going brilliantly. Your right thumb instinctively moves to press the button that will bring up your next fantastic slide.
I’m sure many of you reading this have either previously imagined the situation above, or worse still, experienced it for real during a big presentation.
1. We stand there in front of our audience, open mouthed, speechless and possibly dribbling a little bit too. When I discuss this second option with my public speaking coaching clients, their first response is often, ‘yes, but I am not a pro. Appearing polished when things don’t go to plan is as simple as just taking ten minutes before a talk to write and memorise a few lines. You might choose to prepare lines for different things that you think may have the potential to occur. The only reason that these people appear so accomplished and polished is through preparation and practice.
The wonderful thing about preparation and practice is that they are not the possessions of an exclusive club. Grab a piece of paper and spend ten minutes writing and learning three brilliant quips that you can use next time your big presentation doesn’t go to plan. You will come across the occasional presenter that frowns upon using video during a speech or presentation. As well as supporting and emphasising our key points, video also helps to break up longer presentations, keeping the audience engaged, and giving them a break from the speaker! Add to this the fact that video is a great way for engaging all three core learner types (auditory, visual and kinesthetic) and you have a top tool for powerful presentations.
If your video doesn’t fully support the key point that you are making, do not use it.
Your audience will always appreciate a valid, relevant point well made over a cheap laugh or obscure video link. Simply playing a video for the majority of your presentation devalues your own expertise and voice, damaging your relationship with the audience. Far from it, over the last decade I’ve watched colleagues, competitors and entrepreneurs separate themselves from the chasing pack by standing up and speaking. Now, don’t for a second think this is an article glorifying public speaking and presentation skills as the only key to success in the workplace. I am simply saying that those who do stand up and speak find more opportunities coming their way – they still then need a large amount of skill, luck and of course, hard work to seize those opportunities!
Even if your heart is racing on the inside and you are sweating underneath your suit jacket, those that have the confidence to stand up and speak instantly demonstrate that they are brave enough to take on challenges that millions of others wouldn’t dare to.
Successful speakers quickly build rapport and understanding with their audience through their style of delivery. Standing up and speaking up is the quickest way to demonstrate your expertise, knowledge and understanding to a group. It might seem like the most obvious aspect of them all, but if you’re speaking up, you are learning to communicate ideas simply. Again, it seems so obvious, but by standing up and speaking you are reaching more and more people to display your best qualities to. If you’re nervous about standing up and presenting, or just looking for ways to get ahead in your career, I hope that this article has opened your eyes to how developing your presentation skills can help you to get ahead. You don’t always need structured training to develop your skills (although it may help). However, such incredulous reporting is not quite as pointless as it seems – say what you like about the Daily Mail, it creates opinion in its readers, and is not quickly forgotten! The Daily Mail strives (daily!) to make the inane interesting, the downright dull slightly more delightful and the mediocre memorable. But most importantly, like Marmite, it always creates opinion, and it does so through the use of eye catching, mind blowing (in many ways) and instantly intriguing headlines. If we really want impact, we must start each persuasive point with our very own intriguing, forthright, engaging Daily Mail headline.

Because no audience ever flicked past, forgot or didn’t have an opinion on a truly crazy Daily Mail headline. Of course, we don’t leave this Earth at the end of our presentation, but we do leave the attention of our audience.
Therefore, the final words of our speech are just as important as the final words of our lives. That evidence can take so many forms – stories, statistics, analogies and ideas to name just a few. There are five really obvious mistakes that I see made by agencies across the UK every single week.
When you find yourself receiving even more work from your clients by using these tips, then please do call me. If we don’t go for a run each week, our fitness starts to decrease and we put on weight. If we don’t MOT the car each year, our confidence in its ability to get us safely from A to B declines. Training and learning is exactly like keeping fit, painting the fence and maintaining the car.
If we don’t keep it up, the quality of the product (our health, the fence and the car) begins to decline.
So why do we so often accept that once we’ve had the training, that’s it, we know it? To stay at the top of our game we need to practice, refresh our skills and our knowledge – especially if we work in an ever evolving industry.

We understand that executives and leaders are under constant pressure to effectively communicate their company’s message to a diverse group of internal and external stakeholders. Whether you’re the CEO of a bank under scrutiny and the media spotlight, the president of a university celebrating the opening of its new science center, or an executive looking to improve your leadership abilities and public speaking skills, the opportunities to communicate directly to the public are too valuable to squander.

TESTIMONIALSTeck Kim’s has a strong desire to coach to help people improve to the next level they want to attain. By transforming the way team members think and act through team development will inevitably lead to a culture of trust, innovation, collaboration and pursuit of excellence.
The majority will welcome the networking opportunity and won’t become frustrated, as they’re focused on thinking of something to say!
Divide the room into four groups and ask them to work together to generate questions that they would like to have answered by the forthcoming speaker. If they answer them all (and they should, they were late, after all!) then your audience will leave fulfilled and happy, despite the delay!
It also removes the focus from survival and the negatives (those thoughts of shaking, stuttering and forgetting our words) and instead directs them towards an end goal. When we were told that we had to present our final project to the entire lecture hall the following week, 118 of us felt sick to the stomach (the other 2 were studying drama as a minor subject and positively relished the opportunity to perform). There was no textbook, no seminar, no lecture that would prepare us for what we saw as the biggest challenge of the year. Our university wanted us to achieve the highest levels of attainment, and yet hid from us the tools we required to do this. It was no further surprise when our friends in the years above us confirmed that this was always the case. If we could improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our communications in the workplace our ideas, innovation and output would be improved and the world would surely race to come and trade with us and take onboard our communications culture!
Combined with the arrogant confidence of youth, I muddled through and was viewed as the best of a bad bunch.
My own recent discussions with university course leaders up and down the country help to confirm this.
Firstly, it’s a recognition by our higher education system as a whole that the value of an education is nothing unless a student can communicate that education for the greater good. Not a single session delivered annually with voluntary attendance, but instead a series of workshops that provide a safe and encouraging space for students to develop the skills that will initially benefit them, but will ultimately improve the efficiency and success of our economy as a whole.
Different is intriguing, so instead of simply fitting in, review the titles of the other speeches and break the rules a little! So here’s my ultimate guide to handling Q&A, in the form of twenty top tips to employ before, during and after your next question and answer session!
Again, you are the leader of the room and you don’t want to confuse your audience by answering a question ahead of time and destroying the logical flow of your presentation.
You wouldn’t leave a customer without checking that your product or service had been delivered to their full satisfaction, and the same rules apply to answering questions! If you feel yourself waffling, stop, take a breath and confirm the key points of your answer in short sharp statements. If they have clearly just stated an opinion and not asked a question, thank them for their opinion and move on. Once a ‘good question’ is asked, the rest of the room become hesitant to ask their own questions, just in case they are not as good! Your audience would rather answer a few questions about their knowledge and then be able to follow your answer than have no questions and not a clue what it is that you are saying! To help you answer them, and your audience to follow them, break the more complicated questions down into chunks. It also makes the questioner feel important and valued, which is a nice thank you to them for being so kind as to contribute! It means that your presentation was so good that it answered all of the queries that they had!
A Q&A session at the end of your talk often dilutes the energy and your spot can be in danger of just drying out with no real energy. This way, you can still leave a clear, positive final thought in the mind of your audience AND have a full Q&A session! If a blockbuster movie can attract us all and keep us on the edge of our seats for so long, then surely there must be some lessons that we as speakers can learn from this to make our own presentations just as compelling for our audience? That intriguing trailer, the advert on TV and the online articles all help to build audience anticipation for the big event. Choose an exciting (and relevant) title for your presentation, personally invite each member of your audience to attend, even give away sneak previews of the content that you will be sharing to really excite your audience! Films with deep and involving characters are often much more enduring than those that feature one dimensional potatoes in the lead role. A massive plot hole can leave audiences feeling angry and disappointed when the credits start rolling. If you deny your audience the chance to ask questions (either because you’re too scared or there isn’t time) then they may leave the room with unanswered queries, annoyed that they wasted their time listening to you only to be more confused than before you started speaking! With its darkened rooms, soft chairs and fantasy projections on the screen in front of us, the cinema is a lot like being in a dream of our choosing. In an ideal world you want your audience focus on and think about nothing else but your presentation from the moment that they enter the room. Do your best to make your presentation room like a 5 star hotel, in which your audience have to worry about nothing except what matters – your presentation! Even the best presenters in the world cannot control the minds of their audience and make them concentrate 100%.

It’s for this reason that most action movies end with a titanic battle between good and evil, with the goodies prevailing in the end.
When the credits roll, what will ultimately decide whether your presentation has been a success or a failure? In front of you are rows and rows of smiling faces, hanging on every word you deliver, furiously taking notes, not wanting to miss a single drop of inspiration from you, the inspiring presenter. Share a joke with the audience and laugh off the thing that has happened that we cannot change, and move on seamlessly. Don’t try to tenuously link a humorous video to your point because you think your audience will like you more if they laugh.
Whether it is in meetings, at corporate events or as part of a pitch, far from being a curse, being able to stand up and present confidently is a gift that allows those who can master it to get ahead of the competition in their professional lives. If you’re successfully standing and speaking then you are demonstrating to the world that you have the communication skills to get others to follow you on mighty business journeys. Be careful though, because it’s also the quickest way to get found out if you are bluffing your way through a topic!
But, you are still going to have to think on your feet when the audience have questions, or the unexpected happens!
Communicating ideas and sharing inspiration are key skills for leading teams, and by standing up and speaking, you are already displaying these skills!
As long as you set yourself a public speaking goal and take steps towards achieving it on a daily basis, you are certain to be moving forward, and most importantly, ahead of the rest of the professional pack! Good or bad, right or wrong, we want them to take a stand, a side and sometimes even a sword (think Julius Caesar) on our behalf.
They are the final mark and message that we will leave with the universe before we pass away. They are our last chance to inspire, persuade, motivate or inform and as such we should give them as much careful thought as we would the final words of our existence. I’d love to talk about helping you to increase the success of your presentations even further by delivering training in house for your team,. Why then do we spend half of a pitch telling the client about who we are and how great we are? As part of your presentation, it’s up to you to set the next steps for the conversation. If you have any questions, or are looking to train you staff to avoid making these common errors and losing valuable clients, please give me a shout!

Is not knowing what will happen when you are in front of people, giving your speech or presentation?  Your fear of public speaking is not that you don’t know your topic. The most important thing is to be comfortable with your material, and to feel like you’re genuinely sharing how you feel about whatever subject it is you’re talking about.
His coaching made me feel valued and made me realize I had more potential than I thought…” - Moneesh Khanna, Project Manager (India)“The training is definitely the best training I have ever taken part in. Pages of information are not enough – practical, relevant training in plenty of time is what is required. This realisation may come about through government review or a slower change of mindset amongst the great and the good of the higher education world.
If budget is an issue, perhaps after an initial setup phase, these sessions could be student-run, providing an arena to practice and evaluate presentation skills, in a similar model to Toastmasters International?
To make your speech title stand out from the crowd, use unusual language that makes the reader stop, think twice and process on a more conscious level. Let your audience know whether you are happy to take questions as you go, or if you would like them to save questions until the end.
If you can turn your Q&A session into an interactive piece with other people in the room giving opinions and answering questions your audience will be more engaged and ultimately everyone will get more benefit from the shared wisdom. Think of yourself not as the person being interrogated, but instead as the chat show host, getting everyone involved in the topic of the day!
Be sure to define key terms and ideas within your answer to ensure that everyone can keep up with what you are saying. For example, answer using three key steps, four main thoughts, or perhaps the five main areas that need to be addressed. The anticipation of the film is as enjoyable for some viewers as the film itself (even more so if the blockbuster turns out to be a big flop!).
We can all remember that the lead character in the Shawshank Redemption is called Andy, but can you recall much about the lead characters in High School Musical 3?
If we want to be remembered by our audience, then we need to show some emotion, and tell them a story that they won’t forget.
As a result, your presentation should contain clear headings, points and summaries to ensure that even if your audience do tune out occasionally, they can quickly catch back up.
Before you even begin writing, make sure you know exactly what it is you want to achieve so that you can script a presentation that will be this year’s blockbuster smash hit! How can you do that if you, the human, isn’t in front of your audience connecting with them?
Quick thinking and innovation are key skills for future leaders, and speaking gives you the perfect opportunity to demonstrate them.
Grab the attention of your audience with an intriguing and bold opening line and make them want to listen. If you want to demonstrate true client-focus right from the start, focus on how you are going to help your client, not how great you are!
Your client will appreciate having a clear structure and you’ll feel more comfortable and in control of the account. Woods Canyon has experience with initial survey and identification of cultural resources, testing limited testing and assessment of significance, excavation, artifact processing, artifact analysis, report writing, and curation. Most projects also involve some degree of tribal consultation and communication with culturally affiliated native groups.

It is the uncertainty of outcome – not knowing what will happen when you step to the podium or stage. The last thing you want to do is to be trying too hard to make sure that you phrase things in just the right way and everything is perfect. It’s your presentation, so you need to set the rules that make you feel most comfortable and confident as a presenter. Especially when you’re lucky enough to sit next to the person that is clinically unable to eat popcorn quietly.
We don’t want that to happen after your presentation so be sure to finish clearly, logically and with lots of energy, letting your audience know exactly what it is that you want them to go and do next. Woods Canyon is currently developing an interactive web-based presentation of data recovery efforts at the Navajo Mine in northwestern New Mexico in order to reach a broader audience, and as such, educate and promote preservation of the archaeological record in the region.
More importantly, Woods Canyon understands the benefits and limitations of digital and non-digital mapping technologies and has the ability to merge the best aspects of both to produce high quality maps. In some cases where these GPS-based technologies have limitations due to canyon settings, a Total Station is used to digitally capture data. Clients will learn how to answer the tough questions, deliver their message with confidence and conviction, and gain the tools necessary to maximize their communications potential. With your input our media training coaches prepare the interview questions aiming to closely match the subject matter and expected tone of the interviews you’re preparing for. With Taunton MA presentation skills training from Ellis Strategies we are able to help our clients separate from the pack and establish themselves as a confident, persuasive, and fearless public speakers. When you let go of trying to be perfect, and just try to honestly share what you know it lowers the stress level of public speaking or delivering a presentation immensely.
