Most Recent Fearless Presentations Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia

The group who attended the Fearless Presentations Workshop® in Atlanta learned the importance of the proper use of audience participation.  Many people try to get their audiences involved in their presentations, but end up struggling to get people to participate.  .The first mistake people make is that they ask rhetorical questions and then wait for an answer.  Questions like, “Who wouldn’t want an extra $500.00 on their next paycheck?”  Now this is a silly question because no one in their right mind would turn down the extra money.  It comes across as very manipulating when we ask a question that only has one true answer, especially if you wait for a response.  I remember once going to one of the home and garden shows in my city and had one of the cookware sales people asking very silly and manipulating questions, like “Who here wants to save money on their grocery bills? And who wouldn’t want to eat healthier.”  He literally waited till most of the audience nodded their heads YES before continuing on about how buying this cookware would help them save money and eat healthier.  He lost all his credibility with his audience and after the second or third time of doing this, many people just got up and left his demonstration.  He lost potential sales because of the silly and rhetorical questions he asked. So the next time you ask your audience a question make sure that there is more than one answer so that you don’t frustrate and potentially manipulate your audience.

The Fearless Presentations Class in New York-Learn to Make a Great First Impression

The participates of the Fearless Presentations ® class in New York learned that when we begin to speak, Fearless Presentations class in New York the impression that we make in the first 7 seconds is often the way that our audience may  continue to view us as we deliver our presentation.  That’s why it very important to make a great first impression when we first start our speech.  We have all heard that it’s important to stand straight, smile, and make good eye contact, but it equally important to show energy and enthusiasm for your topic when you speak.  If you don’t show an audience that you are excited to be presenting your topic to them in the first few sentences, they may lose interest and not pay attention to what you have to say.  If you can’t be excited about your topic, then why should your audience be even the slightest bit interested in what you have to say?  So the next time that you speak, remember to also focus on your excitement and enthusiasm.  That will make a great first impression that will carry forward throughout your presentation.  To learn more about how to become an effective speaker sign up for one off the Fearless Presentations ® Class in New York or a city close to you.
