We’ve just spent some time in class talking about presentation skills and you had a chance to give your own short presentation. Still looking for some additional inspiration? Have you seen The King’s Speech? It’s in movie theatres now and is a great story, but did you know there are also some important life skills you can take away from the film? Designer and public speaker Jesse Desjardins has created a short slideshow that highlights five public speaking tips that helped King George VI overcome his stutter.
The tips boil down to :
- Have confidence in your own voice
- Get help if you need it
- Talk about what you know
- Be yourself
While these are broad suggestions compared to the list of eight tips presented in class, they are just as important.
Anyone else have any tips for giving a good presentation?
Oh, by the way, I considered bringing in my five-year-old niece for this job during the class presentations. Although, you were all so great with staying within the time constraints, she really would have been bored.
