    The specific objectives of the workshop were to introduce participants:

    • What makes a good presentation?
    • How can you structure and deliver a presentation that will make an impact?
    • How to use Power Point more effectively?

     

    Mr. Kumar said, “becoming a better communicator and a better presenter are really important to be able to achieve your objectives in a more persuasive and in a more concrete way”. He then explained the importance of using Power Point Presentation in an effective way. Mr Sundeep explained the four components of a good presentation. 

    • Structuring a presentation – the tools and techniques
    • Delivering a presentation – tone of your voice, your body language etc
    • Making an impact on audience 
    • Handling questions – receiving feedbacks

     

    He emphasised on the quality of being a good listener to become effective presenters. He then explained the 12 ways to get attention with the help of short video clips of TED talks delivered by famous personalities: 

    • Provoke

    • How do I handle an audience that asks to finish the presentation in a short time?
    • Should we ask for feedback from audience at the end of the presentation?

     

    At the end of the session, the participants gained a good working knowledge of a good effective presentation.
