Seminar Presentation Skills Training
A leader or resource person’s ability to speak to large crowds, maintain their attention, and convey what they wish to tell these large groups of people is a commonly used tool in their skillset. Effectively conducting speaking activities and in this case facilitating seminars is extremely valuable and highly useful for most companies. Seminars are good, cost effective ways of teaching or informing large groups of people necessary or even indispensable knowledge in their line of work on a small timetable and with limited resources; something that anyone in the field of business will tell you are immensely valuable.
Valuable as a seminar may be, finding someone to properly conduct one is strenuously difficult. It’s a balance between teacher, public speaker, and demonstrator; all of which are already difficult on their own, but increasingly taxing on a speaker when all three are demanded at once. Compounding matters is the very strength that seminars rely on; brevity and cost-effectiveness. Lessons and knowledge that a teacher can breakdown and transmit to students over the course of months the seminar presenter needs to do to an acceptable degree in a matter of days. Important presentations and key materials can be left out of reach due to budget constraints. Not to mention how much this can stress the speaker themselves as balancing all of these while maintaining their intended audience’s attention can prove difficult enough as it stands.
At Paramount Training and Development, we see all the complexities, troubles, and issues that the average presenter needs to worry about on their limited time-tables; we also see the need for someone to be able to conduct said seminars as the knowledge and skills that they do manage to pass on to their viewers is quite useful for most attendees, and is and thanks to its brevity and cost-effectiveness, make it an invaluable tool in any organisation’s arsenal. To address both sides, we’ve constructed our new Seminar Presentation Skills training course for would-be presenters and resource persons with the intended goal of tutoring these learners on how to become more effective at their role.
The keywords to seminar presentation are consistency and dynamism. Presenters must be consistent with themselves and how they handle their audiences, as well as the material they present, and how they present it. Dynamism comes into play when one considers the kind of audience that the presenter is working with, the environment they’re made to present in, and the scarce resources that they are usually limited to. Balancing the two is the key to creating an effective presenter, and we here are Paramount Training and Development have created this specific course to help presenters strike that balance.
Become proficient at public speaking engagements
Seminars are first and foremost a social-interaction between presenter and those they’re presenting. Learners undertaking Seminar Presentation skills training are expected to be able to handle themselves in situations where they are presenting to many people at once. This part of the course will allow learners to overcome their stage-fright (if they possess it) and give them strategies on how to maintain their composure in this speaking format, then as they progress; learn how to address the crowd in an acceptable fashion, until eventually they can do this while also effectively giving their audience the information and know-how that they are supposed to present.
Learn to adapt to their intended audiences
The audience plays a great role – perhaps even greater than the presenter themselves – in a seminar. The audience is the very thing that the presenter is attempting to persuade and teach during a seminar and therefore must be the one most catered to by presentation and style. This is key, as many factors can radically change the effectiveness of a speaker in a seminar format. Age, profession, experience, prior knowledge, and more all need to be considered while creating the presentation and while conducting it; a presentation for young adults with little experience will likely matter little to senior officers in an office, while a dry lecture on the eccentricities of the global financial market will likely get nothing but confused responses from a room of blue-collar workers. Learners undertaking Seminar Presentation training are taught early on how to work accordingly to these constraints and hopefully present something worthwhile to their intended audience.
Effectively use their resources
Another limit often strictly imposed on a presenter is the budget and the resources one has available to conduct said presentation. A presenter can create the most effective and captivating PowerPoint presentation in the world for their lecture on brainstorming, but it would matter little if they were then assigned to a far flung and impoverished environment without electricity, much less the necessary audio-visual aids that would allow them to properly present their material to their intended audience. Those undertaking Seminar Presentation Skills training are taught not only to adapt to their audiences’ needs but also the environment, and are given all the necessary methods and strategies that can allow them to present their material as effectively as possible regardless of the material and resources at hand.
Learn how to create appropriate presentations
With audience and environment factored in, it is then the learners’ job to create a presentation using the most appropriate formats available to them. In continuing with the theme of flexibility and adjustment omnipresent in Seminar Presentation training, learners are tutored by lecturers and tutors from the fields of mass communication on how to create and utilise the many media formats available to them in this day and age, and which ones to use for the greatest effect.
Create and present their own unique presentation style
Charisma plays a good role in presenting something. It can motivate an audience whom normally find certain material to be dry and uninteresting to listen attentively and listen well. while our learners are not expected to become charismatic lecturers that can sweep the nation, they will be taught strategies and guidelines that will allow them to grab and retain their audiences’ attention and enthusiasm, ensuring that their presentations will be as fruitful and effective as they can be in this aspect.
