BAD Presentation habits that Bug the Livin’ S*%t Out of Your Audience

Bad habit Reading the Slides Don’t. Ever. Do this. Ever. Really.

Habit Buster Reading the Slides You are the tour guide, the MC, the master of your presentation domain. Slides are the backdrop to help you better tell your story. Tip: Practice as if you had to give your presentation even if the power went out!

Bad habit Too much content If you want to write a book, then write a book (Just know, I’m not in the audience to read your stinkin’ book)

Habit Buster Too much content Use your slides to just ground your audience using as few words as possible. And BIG font. Tip: Add interest and impact by “showing” via imagery vs. telling with text.

Bad habit “So what” Slide Purgatory You’ve done your homework, you’ve created a nice looking deck, you’ve presented the information and yet… I HAVE NO FLIPPIN’ IDEA WHAT YOUR POINT IS!

Habit Buster “So what” Slide Purgatory Make a clear point vs. just share a bunch of information. What do we need to know? Why is it relevant? What is the key takeaway or the “So what”? Tip: Edit, edit and then edit some more.

Bad habit “Um’s” and “Ah’s” “Um’s” and “Ah’s” = nails on a chalkboard + incessant throat clearing + the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet. It’s an instant credibility killer. You MUST stop this. Now.

Habit Buster “Um’s” and “Ah’s” Step #1: Once you become aware of your verbal crutches by doing a run-through with a friend or video tape yourself. Step #2: Once you become aware of your bad speaking habits, you will be able to “catch” yourself and snuff them out by practicing.
