Presentation Skills - One of the Keys to Corporate World

Sep 30, 2015


“All the Great Speakers were Bad Speakers at First”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have you ever been impressed by someone’s effective and informative presentation? 

Have you ever imagined yourself as an effective speaker?

Do you really want to make it happen?

Then it’s time to focus on your Presentation Skills.

Presentation is the act of putting forth, influential information to audiences of various volumes. It is a skill that has to be learned, chiseled and mastered for making a real impact in a world of constant innovation.

The skill of effectively presenting the ideas, is truly crucial for every individual who steps out of the academics and aspires to settle in the corporate world.

But the obstacle that slows down the pace of entrants into the corporate world is the lack of many skills that are prerequisites to get established and excel further. Considering presentation skills as an asset to one’s successful career, let us look at why many lack the skill.

The factors for the absence of the skill are many. Some of them are...

  • Being inactive in gaining knowledge which leads to uncertainty in ideas and less exposure to its evolving nature
  • Overlooking at the skill’s potential
  • Inability to communicate
  • Fear and low levels of confidence
  • Lack of determination to learn and develop

The very main challenge is, all the above make an individual unfit for the corporate world. Presentation skills are necessary for both the employer and the employee and anyone to enhance their career.

Now let’s look at some of the techniques to overcome these challenges.

Learn from inspirational speakers

Every one of us admire some of the greatest speakers that speak to stir minds towards greater things. Its really fetching to spend some moments on their speeches and learn their strategies in giving an impelling presentation. Observe, learn and apply when you get a chance to do it. But never imitate, be natural in your delivery.

Fill yourself with subject knowledge

Become an expert in the subject you are dealing with and then you can give your best anytime, anywhere.

Bid farewell to your fear

Never give way to fear because it will never let things happen. This is something really hard, but when one overcomes it, the other challenges are easy to swim over. So bid a strong and long farewell to fear.

Spend time to rehearse

Thoroughly rehearse what you have prepared on. Practice makes anything perfect. The more you rehearse, the more confident and perfect you become. Make sure to rehearse, a great way to realise the loopholes and fix them.

Speak to influence

Never speak without a purpose. Purposeless talk is always an unwelcome guest. Aim to influence people with your words. Bear in mind that words can influence in both the ways-they make or they break.

Be clear and loud

Above all, take care of your voice and posture. Stand erect and be loud. However good you speak if your posture, expressions, volume does not match the setting, all goes the other way.

Finally, give attention to every minute issue and proceed with a proper prior plan when you have to give a presentation.

So, do you really want to make it happen??

Go on to learn, improve, and excel. As it is a quality that cannot be overlooked. A person with presentation skills can become very successful in any of the roles like an employee, an HR professional, a CEO, an IT Recruiter, Sales and Marketing professionals and many others. When you have the skill, it’s never hard to climb the ladder of success in the corporate enclave and never hard to win customers.
