Chapter 18. Becoming a Winning Presenter > Keep Adding to Your Presentations Kn...

Keep Adding to Your Presentations Knowledge

  • Go back to the classroom. Sign up for an in-house training seminar. Take a college class after work. Ask the boss to send you to a public seminar. Many people duck these learning opportunities— "Don't have time. . . . Don't need it anyway. . . . I hate to give speeches." They stagnate while their colleagues grab the opportunity and grow.

  • Watch and learn from good speakers, and poor ones. Make every presentation you see—at work, in church, at club meetings, from political campaigners, or from television speakers—a learning opportunity. Determine what keeps you tuned in or nudges you toward sleep.

  • Buy another book or several, beyond this one (unless you're reading a borrowed copy). May I recommend Say It Like Shakespeare: How to Give a Speech Like Hamlet, Persuade Like Henry V, and Other Secrets from the World's Greatest Communicator?[1] Buy or rent an audio or video program.

  • Learn about available tools and resources. Keep up with advances in computer programs and audio-visual capabilities to develop presentations better and faster. Presentations Magazine is a good resource.
