Every presenter wants their audience to pay attention to what they say and to keep their audience engaged. Today we’re going to discuss how to make your audience care about your presentation.
My Topics Are Too Boring, Its Impossible For Me..
Most regular presentations are finance and business related. How is it possible to make these presentations less boring and more engaging? Well, the first step is to realize that any topic can be interesting. You just need to identify the points that grab your audience’s attention.
We Pay Attention To What We’re Interested In
The topic is not as important as it might seem at first. If you convince yourself that the topic is boring, then it will probably show in your voice when you deliver the presentation. As a presenter, you must keep in mind that you’re not giving the presentation for yourself, you’re giving it for the audience. The audience contains people like you and others.
Who Is Your Audience?
It is very important for the presenter to identify who their primary audience is. What matters to them and why they’re listening to your presentation. How does your presentation impact them? Why should your presentation audience care?
Where Does Their Focus Want To Be?
If you’re having trouble engaging your audience, then stop thinking about why your topic isn’t exciting enough. If people came to the presentation, then they already have a reason to show up. Go straight for what those people care about. This will make them feel that they’re doing a disservice to themselves if they don’t pay attention.
Your job is to figure out what your audience really cares about and then deliver the presentation that they came to see. If you can do that, then your presentations will not be boring to them. Good Luck!
