Preparing your presentation
- Make a summary of your presentation or write out the entire text.
- Have additional content available in case you finish early.
- Practise your presentation in advance. Alone or with some listeners.
- Consider interviewing someone during the Teminar or have someone interviewing you.
- Pick a time that is convenient your audience.
- Use a fixed line (no GSM or DECT) for the best audio quality.
- Do not use the "hands free" option of your phone. It may cause echo and noise.
- Consider the use of a professional headset.
Giving the presentation
- Be aware of "jammers" in your neighborhood. Find a place where you can focus to your session.
- Turn off your mobile phone.
- Be on time. Sign in at least 5 minutes before the start of your presentation.
- Keep some distance between your mouth and your phones microphone. The sound of your breath can be annoying.
- Introduce yourself at the beginning of your presentation.
- Explain to participants how to ask questions (by pressing a number key on their phone).
- Don't turn your presentation into a radio broadcast. Use Teminar to interact with your participants.
- End with an offer or task. What do you want your participants to do afterwards?
Consider the use of a professional call center headset to keep your hands free. The Plantronics EncorePro is a good example.
A headset amplifier to connect the headset to your phone is required.
