The 11 Keys to Presentation Mastery to improve presentation skills: Key #02 – Energy
PRESENTATION KEY #02: ENERGY
This key is about your energy as much as it is about the audience’s.
Are you present? Focused? Energised? Aligned? Peaceful?
Do you feel excited and grateful to be presenting or are you petrified and would much rather be somewhere else?
All this affects your energy, which, in turn, affects the energy of your audience.
How much of your energy is focused inwards (on you), and how much of it outward, towards your audience?
As for the audience, how engaged are they? Is it late in the day and they’re tired? Would they rather be somewhere else and if so, what are you going to do about it to make them want to be with you instead?
In addition to being aware of delivering your CONTENT, it is crucial for you to also develop a meta-awareness of the unseen elements of presenting and the energy in the room so that you can adjust it as needed.
It is also something that most presenters don’t think about and why so many presentations are forgotten even before they’re done.
ENERGY is everything.
