Present in the moment

What’s your preferred style for giving a presentation?


Do you prepare and practice or do you wing it? Or maybe you’re somewhere in between.


While I’m a great advocate of being practised and prepared, of knowing what you want to say and how you want to say it, there’s also a case for veering a little towards winging it.


The trick is be so well practised and prepared that instead of concentrating on your planned presentation it flows so well that you can really be in the moment too.


You can adapt or add to what’s going on that day in the wider world, make reference to something that’s come up at the event and most importantly you can read and react to your audience.


If you’re too busy recalling content, you won’t manage any of those and your audience won’t feel so engaged.


Aim to deliver in the moment.
