Adapting to Everyday Environments

Not every performance takes place on the big stage. The majority of business presentations are done for smaller groups, and sometimes those talks take place in unique settings. So, you have to learn to adapt to different circumstances. The good news is that the skills we've been discussing translate well to the variety of situations you may encounter when delivering your message.

I always laugh when someone tells me, “Oh, the meetings I speak at are so informal that you don't really need great presentation skills to make your point.” My response is something like, “I guess you don't need to wear clean clothes on those days, either!” Don't underestimate the power of the moment. If the meeting really is unimportant, then your time is wasted. Do you really have that luxury? Yet, given that the meeting is important, you want your voice to be heard and remembered. Presentation skills are universally adaptable to almost every circumstance in which you speak and someone else listens.
