Preparing for an Oral Presentation

For many, having the courage and confidence to stand in front of an audience and do an oral presentation comes naturally, but for others it can seem daunting and terrifying. Preparation is key when it comes to any kind of oral presentation, no matter the skill or confidence level.

Public speaking and presentation skills can be developed if time is dedicated to practice and preparation.

Vocal Power’s Earl Sky, specializes in offering presentation skills training and public speaking courses to those seeking to develop better presentation skills.

Vocal Power also offers video tutorials and tips that anyone can practice at home. The above video outlines key tips that can be used when preparing for an oral presentation.

“Hi there and welcome to the vocal power

I’m Eark Sky and today I wanna talk to you about what you should do 24 hours before you have to give a presentation. Obviously, learn your speech.

1. Never memorize it but I will say this: memorize the opening and closing of your speech because you don’t want to be looking at your notes right off the get-go. it doesn’t leave a really good impression on the audience. it doesn’t show your confidence and your authority. So learn your speech but don’t over practice it.

2. Let’s talk about your look
Make sure you don’t have any spots on your pants are on your blouses or skirts. Polish your shoes,
a nice shiny pair of shoes does wonders, it really does. Also, don’t drink any alcohol or caffeine-related products before your presentation they will dry out your throat. If you’re thirsty always drink water.

So the key is if you feel good, you look good You’re polished and practiced and ready to go you leave the right impression with the audience every time you have to speak
