Good Speech or Presentation

As a general rule, the vast majority need impressive time and practice before they can talk certainly before a group of people. You can utilize various methods to beat anxiety in front of large audiences, introduce yourself unquestionably and keep your audience locked in.


Characteristics of a Good Speech or Presentation

The characteristics of a good speech or presentation are:

  • Lucidity about what is to be spoken:-

    What thoughts, realities are to be brought to the notification of the crowd. The speaker should be extremely certain of what he wishes to say and ought to have arranged how it is to be said.

  • Command over the language utilized:-

    On the off chance that the speaker doesn't have a decent vocabulary, comprehension of the language, and familiarity with communicating in that language, he can never put across his perspective to others in a powerful way.

  • Not very long, not very short:-

    What ought to be the length of a show or discourse? It relies on the number of components.

  • What is to be passed on?
  • How much time is accessible for the show?
  • Who is the audience?

    No show or discourse ought to be brief to such an extent that it doesn't pass on what was intended to be passed on, simultaneously, it ought not to be long to the point that the audience or audience members become fretful, and the effect of making it is lost. Everyone in this day and age is shy of time and thus introductions ought to be fresh and savvy. Giving everything required, yet not taking a lot of time. In any case, quickness at the expense of lucidity has no significance, what benefit is a concise discourse, which doesn't pass on what was intended to be passed on in any case. Introducing just that what is fundamental, explaining the most significant and maybe troublesome angles, is an art and can be created with experience and practice.

  • Say something new:-

    On the off chance that the speaker simply continues to rehash what has effectively been said by some different speakers, it will become exhausting and the audience members will before long become annoyed. This may turn out as forceful conduct when raising a point or posing an inquiry. The speaker should make mental or composed notes of what has been spoken by the prior speakers and cautiously keep away from it in his discourse by giving a reference to that. Numerous speakers make a unique solicitation to be allowed an opportunity to talk from the get-go in courses and so on just to try not to be monotonous. It is human instinct that an individual won't be keen on hearing the same thing again and again except if the new speaker adds another measurement to the thought previously set forward by different speakers.

  • Appeal to head and heart:-

    A few introductions or addresses leave a permanent or lasting effect on the personalities of the audience members and are recollected and cited by them years after they were made. Discourse should not just appeal to the head or heart. To be enduring in the personalities of the audience members, it should contact both, the head and the heart. An appeal to feelings prevails upon anyone and if that allure is likewise scientific, logical, and sensible, it will win generally present in the audience. In any case, the speaker should stay away from sincere coercion or abuse of the audience members.

  • Must suit the background and experience of the audience:-

    An impressive speech that will have an everlasting impact is the one that matches the frequency of the speaker and that of the audience. Using a very sophisticated language, which persons with a particular background, educational, social, and cultural, only can understand and relate with, for rural semi-literate persons can hardly make any impact.

  • The speech must not be too formal:-

    Leaving aside diplomatic speeches which are drafted very carefully as they can have far-reaching implications in the relation of nations, other speeches must not ignore the personal touch of the speaker. Every speaker has his style of developing a rapport with the audience and if he is too formal and conscious of every word spoken, he is bound to be ignored and forgotten by the audience, the moment the speech is over.

  • Solid information through concrete facts:-

    Most of the persons present in the audience come to get something new and more than what they already know. A speaker must not underestimate the knowledge and common sense of the listeners. Being delightfully vague and expressing only abstract and ambiguous ideas leave the audience frustrated and angry. People get impressed with clear ideas and tangible, easily understandable facts.

  • Never be artificial and copy anybody's style:-

    The best speakers of the world had their style, their way of speaking, using body language, and developing rapport with the ith audience. Some start a speech with a couplet, an anecdote, a small story, or even a joke. A good speaker develops his style and does not copy or imitate anyone else. Of course, there is no harm in learning from great orators by copying their fine points to improve, but never let your natural style be lost.
