Impact in presentations
Nachhaltige Präsentationen


You may already have this, but if not, you will have to acquire it or, if necessary, pretend - until it is real. Not everyone is naturally confident when it comes to public speaking but yes, pretending really does work: no matter how you feel, if you practise confidence and display it then soon it will become more natural to you.


Command of your subject and of the words you use is crucial. This means spending time preparing your presentation, checking that you understand everything you are talking about, researching any areas that may be a little murky and 'owning' your presentation. All this will of course help with the confidence factor too, as once you are totally sure that you know what you are talking about your confidence will increase.


Most people think that you are either born with charisma or simply don't have it. However, as charisma really means that you are attractive and charming; both of these traits can be worked on and improved. Charisma can be boiled down to 5 aspects of a person:

  • family pressures
  • being confident (important in most things you do!)
  • being amusing (so people will want to listen to what you say)
  • being engaging (making those around you interested)
  • making those around you feel that you are interested in them (listen!)
  • having good body language (appearing awkward does not lend itself well to increased charisma)

All of these points may well take practice if they do not come naturally to you, but it is worth persevering as you also need to be yourself when giving a good presentation: pretending to be something you are not only works for very good actors, so it may help to do so if necessary, but it is more important to train yourself to become the person you want to be.
