Tips to anticipate and answer questions as a speaker

A seminar can go wrong if you did not prepare sufficiently. One of the best ways to consider yourself well prepared for the seminar is when you have anticipated the questions that will likely be asked by the audience and coming up with answers and pointers to support your argument. This will give you the confidence to ask your audience if they have any questions about your presentation or product. If answered well, this will also give confidence to the rest of the participants who are in the seminar and let them form a good impression on you and importantly your product or service you are selling or promotion.

Some of the ways to garner questions to prepare are from your family members and family
You should always do a few times of dry run with your friends or family and invite them to pose questions or clarify things that you have not sufficiently elaborated on. Invite your family and friends to give you critic and help you to improve. This is the pool of people whom you can trust and rely on. Many times, the same questions that are post by your family and friends can be the same as the ones that your audience may post it to you. Hence, do adequate research on questions that you are unfamiliar with and take the questions of your family and friends seriously.

Know both the benefits and disadvantages of your product and services
Always try to illustrate the benefits of your product and try to minimise time discussing on the disadvantages of your product. However, when you are asked, never be dishonest to your audience and make claims which are untrue.

If you do not know the answer, be upfront and be candid about it. If you wish to take extra effort, let the participant know that you will get back to him after checking for the answer.

Whenever you open the floor to your audience, it is quite usual that you have audiene that disagree with some the points that you have made earlier. Do not put anyone down even if you know that he/she is not as good in your knowledge as you. But politely let the participant know that this is your opinion after research and of course he is also entitled to his/her opinion. Lastly, thank the participant for his question and feedback.

Tips to select your topic when you organise a seminar

In recent years, we can see that there is an influx of both paid and unpaid seminars taking place in Singapore. These range from educating the public on finance, investments in stock, currencies, property and internet marketing. Without a doubt, there are more successful ones compared to the rest i.e. better participation rate or sign up or take up rate. Therefore, what are the secrets to selecting a good topic so that your seminar will be successful? The first factor is topic selection

Subject Matter Expert
By being subject matter expert, this means that you have been in study for a particular topic for a consider number of years. As Malcolm Gladwell put it, it should be about the range of 10,000 hours of study before you can become good at a particular subject. This will also mean that you have chalked up sufficient experience and knowledge and mistakes along the way. Interestingly, many audience would like to listen to speakers who are ‘human’ ie those that have failed, learn relearn and picked themself after. Hence, if you have such a story to tell, it will help you to captivate your audience and sometimes this could even relate to them. If you are not experienced enough, make sure you equip yourself with enough knowledge as this might affect your branding in the market.

Value Add
Do not let your participants feel that they have wasted their time in attending your seminar. Be sincere and know enough to impart knowledge to your participants. Afterall, they have took time to come listen to you and it is good that you teach them something practical and not only a sales pitch on your product or course. For example, if you are holding a property seminar, you can share the market trends, current interest rates and yield of different housing areas and urban planning of Singapore or population growth to illustrate potential of certain areas. Sincerity sells and convince your potential clients!

Call To Action
Make sure you end your seminar with a call to action. If you like people to sign up for your course, at the end of the seminar, show the benefits of joining your class and let them make a decison. Do not let your participants leave your seminar room not knowing what you are presenting and selling. This would be a waste time for both parties.

Tips to rehearse your presentation

The success of a seminar lies on the the trainer or speaker. It is the trainer’s responsibilty to deliver an engaging, memorable and unforgettable session for the audience. Ample preparation is actually the key to determine the success of your presentation. Here are some tips for your presentation

The number one rule is to prepare. Regardless of how many times you did your presenation before, always remember not to enter into your event without any preparation. Even if you are highly experienced, you should at least do one round of dry run. This is so that you are kept aware of the timing of your slides, and all the succint points. Missing out on some points can be crtical as to your event success. And this will lead to the disappointment of your participants

Prepare, Prepare and Prepare
For speakers who tend to suffer from stage fright and get jittery, actually all it needs to rehearse more and familiarise yourself with your materials. Do consider inviting your friends and family members to review your presentation and ask for your honest feedback. After which, act on the feedback to further improve your presentation.

Use a laser pointer to direct your audience to the points that you want them to. Remember that they are unable to read your mind and will need a visual aid to direct their focus. Also, having less than 3 points per slide will be good otherwise it may lose your participant’s focus. Usually, keep the presentation to less than 10 slides too depending on your type of event.

Tips For Powerful Presentations

Presenting in front of a large audience can be a nerve wrecking event for many people. Below are some tips to present better and appear more confident in front of a large crowd?

Establish your credibility the moment you start your presentation
Your audience will only listen to you if they know who you are, what you do and give your audience a reason why they should listen to you.

Slow Down
Speakers without experience usually speak fast during their presentations. Remind yourself to slow down and have pauses in between your speech.

Let your audience know the purpose or aim of your presentation from the start
Do not let your audience second guess what is your presentation about. Let them know from the onset what is your aim or goal of your presentation.

Use of materials to support what you are presenting
It is good to have supporting materials (facts and figures) from research, institutions or authority figures to establish credibility in what you have said.

Eye Contact
Eye contact with your audience is imperative. Try to match your eye contact with everyone in the room as this wil make them feel important and continue to remain attentive and supportive on what you are presenting.

Project Your Voice
Nothing can be worst than a presentation you can’t hear. If the room is big, make sure you use a microphone. Many speakers make the mistake of insisting that they use their natural voice in a big room. Projecting your voice doesn’t mean yelling, but rather standing up straight and letting your voice resonate on the air in your lungs rather than in the throat to produce a clearer sound.

Do not use or minimise fillers
Moments quite often happen when the speaker is temporarily ‘lost’ and need to use fillers like ‘um,’ ‘ah,’ or ‘you know’? Instead of doing so, replace the fillers with a pause. The pause may seem a bit strange, but the strange thing is the audience will usually not notice it.

Prepare Early
Be familiar with the training room equipment and do not get caught up with hooking up the powerpoint and/or projector when participants are waiting for you to speak. Come early, run through your slideshow, dry run your presentation and make sure there won’t be any glitches. Preparation is one of the most crucial tips in helping you to remove your speaking anxiety.

Rehearse your speech as many times as you can before the event. Better still, join Toastmasters and practice your speaking skills regularly in front of a large audience. Not only you will have fun, you will also pick up tips along the way to make yourself a better speaker and build your confidence and competence when you need to approach the stage.
