Indicator of a Good PPT Presentation

A presenter would need the skills of presentation to be outstanding. Many of us have been trained about the presentation skills since in high school and college. That aims one, to make you get accustomed to doing good presentation that is interesting to audiences. Presentation skill is also one of the most important skills in the workplace. You can influence customers to buy company’s product and negotiate with business partners to go through the win-win relationship with good presentation. To some people, the talent is just there naturally. You do not to practice in front of the mirror, observe your talented friend, or read the guides from books. To the rest, you will need more effort. Presentation skills involve the ability to speak in loud and clear voice, the ability to organize ideas so that they turn out smoothly and systematically, the ability to organize words and sentences so that they are easy to be understood, the ability to give and use examples appropriately, using the right and interesting body languages, and engage the audiences in the whole presentation.

How do you know then, whether a presentation is successful or not? Well, If you see your audiences’ eyes stay focused on you and the projector or whiteboard during the presentation, then your presentation is good. Also, if audiences are curious to ask questions or participate in the discussion, then you can feel optimistic about the presentation. Other clues are if no audience uses their mobile phone, looks sleepy, chats with his/her colleagues, and walk in/out the presentation rooms over time during the presentation. Obtaining audiences’ attention is not an easy thing. You would need some preparations such as: the content of presentation including the points to deliver, body language, and your attitude, the dress or suits to wear, how to build interaction with audiences, the choice of words and sentences, the visual aids to make your message more interesting, and so on. During the presentation session, you should reminding yourself to stay connected with your audience by relating the topic you are talking about with their daily lives, grab their attention by tell a compelling story or material so that they are eager to listen to the next material, keep understanding the material you have talked about. There should be synchronization among the sentences and points you speak out.

If possible, write some specific goals before you go through the presentation. For example, if you are doing presentation to obtain a contract with business partner, then obtaining the contract can be your stated goal. If you are doing a presentation in front of audiences to get new sales, then you can state your goal as to sell 50 units of products That way, you can have clear indicator whether your presentation is successful or not. Some other tips for you are to be confidence with your presentation, know who you are talking to, engage in the presentation and show empathy so that you do not sound like giving lecturer, make the material sounds simple so that audiences can easily get the points and clues, and anticipate any reaction from audiences.

The Presence Is in the Present

Happy New Year!

We’re halfway through our 12 days of Illumination and I’m so happy we decided to take this journey together.  Already I find myself more open, more present to my thoughts and emotions (and thus less vulnerable to letting them take me somewhere without my awareness!)  That’s one of the gifts of the holy days, if we approach them mindfully.  They call us into a deeper level of awareness.

Yesterday we were preparing for some friends to come over to ring in the New Year with us.  Our daughter Bridget was helping me make a 7 layer dip.  She loves to cook and often helps me in the kitchen.  Suddenly I was overwhelmed with a feeling of joy and gratitude for her and for her life.  I gave her a big hug (Bridget may be the world’s best hugger) and as I held her in my arms I felt tears coming.  David looked over his shoulder and caught my eye as he wiped down the counter.  “Are you ok?” he asked.  “Yes,” I told him, “I’m actually doing really well.”

Joy is not an emotion.  It is a state of being that bubbles up without effort when we regularly bring our awareness back to the moment and choose, over and over again, to be present to what is.  You might even experience it during some of your most painful moments.   It is a natural response to being in the presence of the Presence.  When we bring our full awareness into any given moment, we touch the Timeless.

That’s why when I noticed my thoughts today slipping into Monday and thinking “I’m going to be so busy next week! I have two articles to write and I need to send my CV off to that organization that is considering me to speak, I have to get talking points to Great Day St.  Louis, there’s the final edit of my book and the freelance writing assignments…” I stopped.

I decided I want to bring this feeling of timelessness and presence with me into next week.  And yet, paradoxically, planning to be present doesn’t work.   I can’t really make a resolution to be more alive.  I can only choose to be more alive in each moment, as it comes.  As soon as I try to hold on to the exquisite joy that arises from mindfulness, it slips away.

I can only find The Presence in the present.

So, Happy New Year, my friend on the journey.  I’m wishing you many moments of presence.

Peace of this moment to you,

Effective Sales Presentations for Leasing Commercial Real Estate

Leasing commercial spaces is one of the best ways to market your real estate property due to several advantages. The only thing that you need to do is to make sure that you are going to present your terms properly and you can already get the best deals possible. In this article, we will be talking more about the things that you can do in order to get better presentations for your space. Reading this article will help you understand the things that you need to do, and will ensure that you will always get the best revenue from your investment.

The most important thing that you need to do when making a lease presentation is to make the buyer realize that the property you are offering will give them the best place for their business. You don’t have to do a lot of hard-selling when presenting a commercial space and all you have to do is to show them the beauty of the property that you have. One of the reasons why there are people who are having problems when presenting their real estate property is that they are thinking of ways on how they can convince the buyer, which should not be your case.

If you want to seal the deal easier, it would be better if you are going to get a real estate agent who can help you make your presentation more professional. They are aware of the things that should be considered when making a presentation, and if you are going to get their service, you can be assured that you will be able to sell your property easier and faster. Just make sure that you are going to get the service of a reliable agent, because this will ensure that you are going to get the service that you need.

Another option that you can take is to look for people who are interested with your property and let them check it on their own. You can even have it listed through realtors to make it easier for you to find interested buyers. Businesses always need to have a space where they can operate, and you need to be sure that you are going to give them what they really need – great location. If you are going to allow them to check your property, it will be easier for them to make their decision and will ensure that you will have the best deals possible without having a hard time.

There are a lot of people who are having problems when presenting their commercial properties, but the truth is that you don’t have to think hard just to be able to have it leased by other people. Keep in mind that whenever you get into the table to negotiate the terms of the sale, they are already interested with the property that you have, and all you need to do is to make them realize that they are making the right decision. This is the most important thing that you need to remember when trying to present a commercial real estate.
