Description

Let me ask you three questions…When you give a presentation thats scheduled to be an hour long, if you start at ten thirty, do you end at eleven thirty?If you give a ten-minute presentation, do you end exactly ten minutes later?If you’re supposed to deliver a four-hour presentation that starts at one oclock, can your audience count on being able to walk out the door at five?A good presenter learns to do that. More importantly, your audience counts on it! Some of your audience member in your presentation showed up just to hear your last topic! Imagine how they feel when you say, “Sorry, we ran out of time…”Or, when you say, “We’re running out of time, so we’ll have to skip the last topic.”Or, when they gave up another meeting to come see you, and then you say, “Looks like we’re going to end twenty minutes early…” In this program, I’m going to teach you howto calibrate your message, so no matter what happens in your presentation, you can get it back on track, and end on time. Specifically, we will cover:Module 1:How to Create a TimetableThe primary reason presenters have problems with pacing is they havent done enough advance planning. Once you have prepared the blueprint for your presentation, you have to test it, adjust it, and document it.I’m going to show you exactly how you can deliver it in the right amount of time and still leave time for questions.Module 2:How to Manage Audience Question PeriodsFaulty planning is the number one cause of pace problems……the best way to resolve these problems is by managing questions that come from the audience.It is essential you build question periods into your planning. Imagine shopping for a car… …the salesman is discussing its features and terms, but when you ask a question, he says, You cant ask any questions until Ive finished what I plan to say. Youd go to a different car dealer. Why? Because you feel this one isnt meeting your needs. Similarly, you will lose your audience if you dont respond to their questions in a timely manner.Answering questions may benefit you as well as the audience members… A question may give you an opportunity to provide a fuller explanation of one of your points. This may make your presentation more helpful to the audience and more successful for you.Generally, presenters tell the audience to hold questions when theyre afraid they will run out of time before theyve finished. If you plan properly, this wont happen. In fact, you can use questions to make sure you finish on time.Module 3:How to Adjust as You GoOf course you want to make sure your presentation is going according to your timetable……but you never want to let the audience catch you checking the time. You dont want to give the impression you arent interested in being responsive to them.I will show you how to adjust as you go and still create a real connection with your audience. I look forward to seeing you on the inside…About Your InstructorInternational Public Speaking Coach, TEDx Speaker and Best Selling author Jason Teteak has taught more than one million people how to flawlessly command attention and connect with audiences in their unique style.Hes won praise and a wide following for his original methods, his engaging style, and his knack for transferring communications skills via practical, simple, universal and immediately actionable techniques.Or as he puts it No theoretical fluff.Jason gained recognition at EPIC Systems in the medical software industry, where he was known as trainer of trainers of trainers.He has developed more than fifty presentation and communication training programs ranging in length from one hour to three days that serve as the basis for The Rule the Room Method.In 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 he was named #1 Best Selling coach on Public Speaking for his on-demand video teaching tools that quickly took off for over 100,000 online students around the world.Teteak has flipped the model and changed the approach to great Public Speaking for even the most seasoned veterans.
