conversational skills speaking the quick fix Jul 26, 2021

How often do you feel stuck when it comes to presenting technical findings or progress reports on one of your projects?⁠

Annoying, right? I get it, and I want to let you in on three tips today that can completely change your performance as you help your listeners to arrive at the correct solution (all by themselves). ⁠

Say goodbye to guesswork and hello to being ACCURATE and CONVINCING.⁠

TIP 1: Consult reliable sources. If you refer to scientific facts, a personal experience, or other supporting evidence, check in advance and make sure your source is trustworthy.⁠

TIP 2: Use those sources properly. Quote facts in harmony with their context. Use those sources in accord with the original context and the intent of the writer.⁠

Do not overstate or exaggerate facts + figures. Make sure 'some people' doesn't become 'the majority of ppl'. And 'in some cases' doesn't become 'always'. Or 'possibly' doesn't become 'properly'.⁠

TIP 3: Reason on the evidence. After citing a source, ask questions or illustrate the point to help your audience draw their own conclusion.⁠

Are you doing any of these things at the moment? Feel free to contact me if you need help with your next presentation.
