P4: Giving Presentations and Whatnot

Tutor was Bev Walshe.

Attended workshop on 24th; was good. Material was presented well. Would recommend.

Points:
Calm down
This point is pretty general but I’ll try whatever works. My heart starts racing easily enough, even when I’m alone. On the plus side, this means there’s practically no difference in talking in front of some people or no people: I tend to tune them out once I get going. Points would be breathing (deeply or not) and drinking water to have an excuse to not talk for a while.

Watch people
This comes in tune with “listen to people talk” from A4. I’ve consciously observed some of how body language affects appearance: time to watch some more.

    Hello Christopher,
    You are master of the concise comment!

    I have to pick you up on one point – although you may not thank me for it. i can see that ‘tuning people out’ is a blessing as you are not aware of them. However, on of the crucial points I made was that being aware of the audience allows you to be deliver the presentation more purposefully – so that you can keep them listening and understanding.

    Look forward to reading your next blog

    A further thought – I can’t remember if I made this comment on the evening – but I say it very often: – I expect all my students to become
    ‘people watchers’, I am pleased that it sounds as if you already on to this.
