PowerPoint Tips

SmartArt was a new feature of PowerPoint 2007 and is a way to quickly create professional-looking diagrams from bulleted text. In the Tell ‘n’ Show SM method , you put a meaning title that tells the point on the slide. Then you add an image, graph/chart, or diagram that shows the point. Just like the boy’s picture book.

Public speaking: talent or skill?

Speak Schmeak

Is public speaking a talent or a skill? Talent : a special natural ability or aptitude Skill : the ability, coming from one's knowledge, practice, aptitude, etc., to do something well If you think of public speaking as a talent , and it's one you don't have, you will fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others who have (what you perceive to be) "natural talent." You will see yourself as deficient in some way. You will convince yourself that you can never be as good as "so and so."

Build your public speaking immunity

Speak Schmeak

It's cold and flu season again. How are you holding up? Did you know that, once you become infected with a particular strain of a virus, it won't ever make you sick again? There are estimated to be 150-200 different cold viruses out there; you won't catch the same virus twice because once you've suffered through it, your body has built immunity to that particular strain.

What if your worst public speaking fear comes true?

Speak Schmeak

Let's talk about those things that hold many people back from enjoying public speaking. You may have mad skills, you may have a great personality, you may be a snake charmer with the ability to hypnotically attract everyone in the audience to you. But those nagging fears still keep you up the night before your presentation and get in the way of truly enjoying the experience. Or you are so paralyzed by these fears that you find ways to avoid public speaking day after day, year after year.

If you believe in something, you can talk about it

Speak Schmeak

"If you believe in something, you can talk about it. All my life I have been very, very shy. To get in front of a crowd drives me nuts, but I have a message to deliver. When I talk to people, I have one thing on my mind: How can I help that person - that woman, that young kid, that person with arthritis - how can I help those people to help themselves?" ~ Jack LaLanne Here's an article about the immortal Jack LaLanne from 1995.

Stayed and stood

Speak Schmeak

Have to get another pet peeve off of my chest. Have you heard people use the word "stood" as the past tense of "stay?" So, instead of saying "I stayed out too late," they will say "I stood out too late"? Last night I heard Rod Serling use "stood" instead of "stayed" in the prelude to a Twilight Zone episode and I almost choked on my dinner. Rod Serling? I'm just fed up with this one. Just to clarify: the past tense of "stay" is "stayed." The past tense of "stand" is "stood."

Create a theme in PowerPoint 2007 that changes colors

PowerPoint Tips

However, in PowerPoint 2007, when you place shapes on the slide master and change the theme colors, those shapes change color. When you place AutoShapes on the slide master in PowerPoint 2003 and then change the color scheme, those AutoShapes don't change their color. Only AutoShapes that you place on a slide (as opposed to the slide master) change their color. That is, if the colors of the shapes are available from the current theme colors. I'll explain what this means in a minute.)

Braithwaite pronunciation

Mispronunciation of my name has been a lifelong annoyance, and the reason that I make an extra effort to get other people's names right. Sometimes people are really trying, but a lot of the time, they just butcher it without even making an effort.

Audience participation ideas

Speak Schmeak

Depending on the size of your group, and especially when you're conducting a workshop or longer training, you will want to encourage participation from your audience. There are always some participants who participate more and some who participate less. It's easy for people who are shy to sit back and wait for the more outgoing members to speak up. How do you keep some people from dominating and help others to break out of their shell? Here are some ideas that have worked for me: 1.

A presentation that works

Speak Schmeak

Recently I wrote about some short presentations I've experienced where the speakers did not seem prepared , even though they had plenty of time. In addition to lack of preparation, several of these speakers made the faux pas of talking about their business more than sharing information to benefit the audience ( features instead of benefits ). I'll confess that these presentations have been given by members of a referrals group I belong to.

What is your objective?

Speak Schmeak

There's one simple step to ensure that your presentation stays focused and clear. Unfortunately, many speakers neglect this step, which is why their presentations drift, roam and seem to follow no logical path. Determine your objective What is the purpose of the presentation? Do you want to inform, educate, entertain, enlighten, inspire, motivate, or all of the above? What do you want the audience to do as a result of your talk?

Annoying PowerPoint survey

Following up on this post , I've just been reading the results of Dave Paradi's Annoying PowerPoint Survey. I'm not at all surprised by the results. The top three things that annoy people about PowerPoint presentations are: * The speaker read the slides to us - 67.4% * Full sentences instead of bullet points - 45.4% * Text so small I couldn't read it - 45.0% Here's the thing: many of the people who are victims of bad PowerPoint are also the villains perpetrating it! Why is that?" you ask.

Voice care #2 - how's your pitch?

Speak Schmeak

As a follow up to my post about voice care from the other day, I want to talk about something that is a typical bad habit of speakers in the US, yet many are completely unaware of doing it. Are you a low talker? Many of us speak at a lower pitch than is natural for us. Speaking at an unnatural pitch can be damaging to our vocal cords, yet speaking in a low voice is considered "authoritative" for men and "sexy" for women, so there isn't much incentive to change the habit.

Just like a kid

Christmas Eve, hubby and I were late arriving at his parents' house for dinner, and everyone was already eating. Space at the table was tight, so I sat at the kids' table with six of my husband's nieces and nephews, ranging in age from 11 to 17. A few minutes into the conversation, the 11-year-old turned and said to me, "You're like a kid. no offense!" I said that I could never be offended by such a great compliment!

What do you do when no one shows up?

Speak Schmeak

If you've been speaking for any length of time, you've experienced an occasion when fewer people showed up than expected. Like Peter Delmar in this article , I've had speaking engagements where I expected many more attendees than actually appeared. In fact, I think it's quite common for organizers to inflate the numbers in order to attract speakers. I have a client who was told to expect 500-750 people at a seminar he was giving. When he arrived, there were 50 people in the room.

Prepared vs. over-prepared

First of all, here's what it looks like to be unprepared. Also, here's a post I wrote about how I prepare for a presentation. I've read lots of articles that say you can never be too prepared, or that it's better to over-prepare. I disagree. You're prepared when: 1. You feel confident about your topic 2.
