  • How to avoid a boring presentation?
  • Slide 25
  • Work on vocal variety! Speak to the audience as if in a one-to-one conversation so as to sound more natural. Lighten up! Add a bit of humor. There are lots of true and humorous anecdotes that would elicit laughter and get audience members on your side. Laughter will also ease a presenters tension. Dont tell us everything you know! We must not feel that we have to pack everything we know into one presentation. Usually covering three main points/topics is sufficient for a dynamic presentation.
  • Slide 26
  • How to avoid a boring presentation? Use visual aid with care! Dont read what audience members can see already - you lose their attention quickly. Also, boring visuals with lots of words and no graphics are a complete turnoff. Involve the audience! Ask the audience questions and encourage them to ask us questions or make comments on your statements. Prepare, prepare, prepare and practice, practice, practice! The more prepared you are, the more comfortable and enthusiastic you will be when presenting. Work on all of these youll never, never, never be boring!

  • You can gain the audiences attention by: telling an anecdote, a joke mentioning a really surprising fact or statistic stating a problem asking a question The question "How many people here have a home computer?" is a lot more interesting than "Today I'm going to tell you about the Internet.
