  The Nine Presentation Sins
And how you can avoid them

Presentation Sin 1: Wasting time
           Start on time and finish on time.
 
Presentation Sin 2: Boring your audience
           Give them key points that they can digest. Donít read your speech. Package the information with your voice, body language and style to make it interesting.
 
Presentation Sin 3: Lacking passion
           Believe in your message and let them know how much you believe in it. Passion is captivating, contagious and more convincing than logic.
 
Presentation Sin 4: Confusing your audience
           Keep your message clear. Eliminate unnecessary information and conflicting messages. Use words that they understand. Repeat your message three times.
 
Presentation Sin 5: Insulting your audience
           Talk to them and with them - but not down to them. Donít make jokes about the audience. Donít assume that you know what they think, know or have done.
 
Presentation Sin 6: Not clear about your purpose/message
           Ask yourself why you are giving this speech. Be able to state your message in one short clear phrase. Then build your presentation around that. If you canít Ė donít.
 
Presentation Sin 7: Information overload
           Give them what they need to know to do what you want them to do. Donít overload them with too much information.
 
Presentation Sin 8: Stuck in your rut of delivery Ė unable to flex to the audience
           Be prepared to alter your presentation to reach the audience in the way that is best for them. It is not about you. You must reach them with your message.
 
Presentation Sin 9: Using slides that are boring, irrelevant, or confusing
           Only use visual aids that reinforce your message. PowerPoint will never rescue you from poor presentation skills. You are your best messenger.
