Don't depend entirely on your Power Point. Develop strong relationships and connections with others. Organize your ideas. Include visual aids.

Sharing tips from a book I reviewed in 2005. Experience life and continue to learn and grow. Take on a new challenge, look for new and better ways of doing things. The more you contribute, the more value you bring to your organization. Get involved with people. Develop strong relationships and connections with others. Keep in touch with former teachers, managers, co workers, and friends. These are some of your best connections, and staying in touch helps build a strong network. If your company has a mentoring program, enter it. You'll find many people willing to help you if you only ask them to. Stay involved in mentoring, offer to mentor someone who can benefit from you. Spend time with people. Steps to help you power up your presentation sills. Don't depend entirely on your Power Point. You will be asked to present information numerous times throughout your career. At times you will present information in your office in front of only one or two people or in a meeting with three, four, or more. On other occassions you might be asked to present to a very large group. If you fear presentations or speaking to a group (which most people do), you may never eliminate your fear entirely, but the author can assure you if you prepare in advance and practice every chance you get, you'll become much more comfortable. Some of your favorite athletes and performers say they get nervous too, often before a performance. It doesn't stop them from performing, it helps them get ready to perform. Steps to help you power up your presentation skills: Identify your objectives: Why have you been asked to present? Develop your message. Avoid information overload. Organize your ideas. An effective presentation has a beginning, and end. Include visual aids. As you tell your audience what you want to tell them, show them the information as well. Visual aids add variety and make your presentation more interesting. However, don't depend entirely on your Power Point or other visuals. Prepare in advance. Practice in front of other people, in front of a mirror, or when you're alone in your room. Never memorize your talk or read your entire presentation word for word from a piece of paper. The author, Susan Morem - 101 Tips for Graduates. The author extensive client list includes many high profile companies, such as Citibank, Coca-Cola, Honeywell, Sears, US Bank, Wells Fargo, AAA, American Express, 3M, Prudential, State Farm Insurance and Target Corporation.
