I rarely remember names but I remember faces very well. And when this guy walked into the training room some 2 weeks ago I knew he had been in my training before. So I checked and I was right and the logical question for me was…happy to see you again, what made you decide to come again to this training? I was so happy when he told me that he had followed my course a year ago and had used so many tips that helped him but now he wanted to reach the next level. Wise guy ;-) A training or coaching in presentations is never a 1 time experience, it is a path…

In de 16 jaar dat ik werk als presentatie coach is de meest gestelde vraag zonder twijfel hoe je af geraakt van de stress. Wat velen niet weten is dat heel ervaren sprekers ook stress ervaren, het lijkt alleen alsof ze heel zelfzeker op dat podium staan omdat ze precies weten hoe ze moeten omgaan met die stress. Stress voor een presentatie zal je altijd hebben (meer of minder afhankelijk van topic, publiek en voorbereiding) want het is een natuurlijke hormonale reactie. Wat kan helpen is ‘bewust’ een houding aan te nemen voor het publiek. Ga dicht bij het publiek staan, beweeg vanuit jouw schouders en kies een rusthouding zoals personen die het weerbericht presenteren op televisie.

I know so many people who think that the longer you speak and the more content you provide, the more valuable it is. But what about your audience? They have most often a very passive role, just listening, and that is far more difficult than speaking.

Just last week I was following a presentation and I am convinced that everyone was there, as I was, because they were very interested in the topic. Normally this presentation was a session of 1,5 hours (this is for Peter Hinssen for example his favorite time frame for speaking). But as people were coming from all around Belgium and the presentation was organized in Genk, they had asked the speaker to make this a longer session (about 2,5 hours). Far too long and extremely difficult for the audience!

So let me ask you this? Do you organize welcome days for new people? Do they have to listen to presentations of the different division? This is all organized with the best intentions but let me give you this advise. Share short stories with them so they can get to know the company values and send facts & figures or whatever they need. Let them network with each other and mingle with people from the company. Make it fun and it will be so much more valuable… Enjoy your next presentation!
