15 Presentation & Public Speaking Tips that Rock

 

1. Put your Twitter name on every slide.  Even at the least social media savvy events, there are always multiple people tweeting. Putting your Twitter handle at the beginning of the slide deck usually doesn’t do the trick (what if someone comes into the room late?).  Since I’ve added my Twitter handle to every slide, tweets have more than doubled.  What a great way to expand the reach of your message.
 
2. Be prepared with Tweetable messages. I learned from my friend Jay Baer to come prepared with Tweetable sayings.  It’s best practice to put them on the slide (no more than 140 characters) and repeat them at least twice for maximum impact.
 
3. Pre-promote your speech using the event hashtag . The day before and the morning before your presentation, be sure to let people know you are speaking, what you are speaking on, and what time using the event Twitter hashtag (like #cmworld).  I can’t tell you how many more people I get to my speeches who are undecided with which session to attend.
 
4. Never more than 20 words on a slide. If people have to read your slide, you’ll lose them.  Use headlines and text to cue your stories, and pictures to amplify your point. My goal is to someday take the advice of Seth Godin and have all my slides with no words…just pictures.
 
5. If you use words, make them at least 30 point size or larger.  If you do have text on a slide, make sure it’s actually readable. 30 point is the smallest I would go.
Don’t stand behind the podium. A podium places an unnecessary barrier between you and your audience.  Talk with the audience, not at them.
