Clear and powerful voice in powerpoint presentations
Use a clear and powerful voice to make sure that everyone in the room is paying attention to you. Make tone variations, or ask the audience some questions to see if they’re concerned about what you’re talking about.
Little phrases and paragraphs
Don’t just read what appears on the screen: Use little phrases and paragraphs, and explain it with your own words. Also use schemes and words in bold and italics.
Move through the stage
Move through the stage, express yourself by giving your hands a free and relaxed movement.
Don’t look down
Look at the people: They’re listening to you, and you should talk directly to them. That will attract their attention.
And last but not least, try to keep a good overall image. Try to look cheerful, happy and kind to people, study what you’re going to say and do it with the right words.
