8 Training Delivery Tips

1. Know Your Audience


Think about who you are delivering training for. Your audience affects so much about your presentation; the tone, the delivery style, the use of humor (or not!), so take time to consider your audience.

2. Avoid Clutter


Keep slides and handouts clear and concise. Avoid too much text or clutter to ensure the audience can focus on your message.

3. Step Away from PowerPoint


It’s fine to use PowerPoint as a reference point or touchstone, but to keep your audience engaged, avoid the pitfall of simply reading from your slides.

4. Remove Padding


This is linked to, but also distinct from to the “avoid clutter” step. Only use slides, content and visual aids relevant to what you want to achieve. Avoid adding content as “padding”. This is distracting and takes focus away from what you want to achieve.

5. Get Comfortable


Make sure you know your presentation inside out. The more familiar you are with the structure of your presentation, the more confident you will be delivering it.

6. Be Ready for Questions


Try to anticipate what kinds of questions may be asked and prepare for these in advance.

7. Get a Second Opinion


When designing and delivering a presentation, it’s easy to get “too close” to the material. Ask a friend or colleague for feedback on the presentation itself and on your delivery style.

8. Be Fresh as a Daisy


Try to get a great night’s sleep before your presentation or speech. Don’t skip breakfast, lunch or whatever meal comes before your speech. Where possible, take some quiet time before you speak.
