In the field of Education we are always engaged in presenting our lectures and seminars to students and students also

do to other students. The success of any student or teacher comes from effective learning and attitude to impress the audience; however our success is evaluated by the listeners or our audience. Presenting information clearly and effectively is a key skill to get your message or opinion across, and today presentation skills are required in almost every field. Even our Pharmaceutical sales people presenting to us on I pads and tablets. Be familiar with what is a presentation, presentation is a means of communication which can be adapted to various speaking situations, such as talking to a group, addressing a meeting or briefing a team. To be effective, step-by-step preparation and the method and means of presenting the information should be carefully considered. I wish to state I have been trying for many years yet I never reached a perfection, I wish I will try for better presentations; never forget Preparation is the most important part of making a successful presentation. This is the crucial foundation and there should be no short-cuts. Irrespective of whether the occasion is formal or informal, always aim to give a clear, well-structured delivery. You should know exactly what you want to say and the order in which you want to say it. Clarity of ideas and good organisation should result in a lively, logical and compelling message. Regardless of whether your presentation is going to be delivered formally, such as at work or informally, you should always aim to give a clear, well-structured delivery. That is, you should know exactly what you want to say and the order in which you want to say it. Having thought about and planned a good structure will also help to alleviate any nervousness you may be feeling in the build-up to your talk. Never forget be good in clarity, Clarity of ideas and good organisation should help result in a lively, logical and compelling message, delivered in a confident and professional way. Our 45 minutes of lecture or presentation would contain 3 main elements 1 Tell the students in the introduction what your subject is and how you have organised the presentation (by stating the key elements).5- 10 minutes 2 Then tell them the details of the key elements and/or messages (by expanding and qualifying the key points in more detail and providing supporting evidence).25- 30 minutes 3 Then tell the students what you have just told them (by summarising the key points, concluding with the main subject again).10 – 15 minutes

Prepare at least 8 – 10 important points, in a lecture of 45 minutes
Arrange the key points in logical order and expand them with supporting material discussion, argument, analysis and appeal. If you are hoping to students, or people who are

familiar with topic, then it is advisable to address potential controversies, within the presentation so that you present a reasoned, well-balanced view. The right visuals have great important on the students, be sensible and not emotional, Use visual illustrations if anything requires expanding, clarifying or simplifying. Illustrations of any type should be relevant and fully explained. Bear in mind that a talk will last longer if visual aids are used. Avoid too many animation people lose the concentration on you, so you will be ignored, Hope this world is full of PowerPoint presentations, PowerPoint or other presentation software is often used to support a presentation, although care needs to be taken to ensure that this technology aids the presentation and does not detract from the main essence of your talk. Do not use visual aids or PowerPoint just for the sake of it or to show off your technological prowess, there is nothing more distracting than crazy and pointless PowerPoint animations in a presentation. Make a good beginning, begin to make it an acceptable lecture, the introduction should give a preview of what you are going to say and should gain the attention of the listeners with a statement of purpose, stick to the law of three, three is the magic number. The brain finds it relatively easy to grasp three points at a time: people find three points, ideas or numbers, easier to understand and remember than four or more. You could therefore structure your presentation about the magic number of three. Divide your key message into three elements and then expand each of these points into three sub-points. If you are using a visual aid such as PowerPoint, limit the number of bullet points to three on each slide and expand on each of these as you go along. However we crumple with too much information than what we teach to our students. English Is a foreign language we are never perfect, ensure that the language you use is appropriate for the audience. Are there any terms they may not be familiar with? If so use more familiar terms or explain the meaning. Presentations are spoken and so choose to use accessible and easily-understood words (such as those you would use in a conversation) rather than technical or obscure words. Even best presentations will have spelling mistakes Check, and double check, that any presentation slides or illustrations, titles, captions, hand-outs or similar are free from spelling mistakes. Do remember words not used with sense have no meaning and distorting, and then Words do not have any meaning. They have value, use, according to the situation in which way they are put. Do not speak too fast and remember to pause occasionally to let the audience assimilate the information. Use easily comprehensible language and try to avoid clichés and jargon. If you are sincere and enthusiastic you will quickly develop a rapport with the audience. Do your best to be friendly, upbeat and positive with other people. Criticism is part of life -Dealing with criticism positively is an important life skill. At some point in your life you will be criticised. Perhaps in a professional and sometimes it will be difficult to accept – but that all depends on your reaction. You can either use criticism in a positive way to improve, or in a negative way that can lower your self-esteem and cause stress, anger or even aggression. End you lecture with a positive note how this topic will help you to perform better in their career. If you have not done well Today try for better

performance, tomorrow to do better things, Life is a constant improvement, never give up improving the talents to survive with dignity and respect. Maintain a positive, cheerful attitude to life: when things do not go UNPRODUCTIVE, stay optimistic and learn from your mistakes. If you smile often and stay cheerful, people are more likely to respond positively to you. Dr.T.V.Rao MD Professor of Microbiology – Freelance writer Email;
