And my suggestion to them is to get to what I call the 90/10 which is during your presentation 90% of the neurons in your brain are focused on your audience and only 10% is focused on the content. And to get there you need to practice your presentation 3 times in real time – you do that and you’ll be probably 70% less nervous.
In preparing for a talk most people put the emphasis on what they’re going to say but there’s a lot more to it than that.
It turns out 55% of communication is your facial expressions and body language. 38% is your tone that would be your volume, your pace and the inflections in your voice – and only 7% are the words that you say.
Jason says that when you speak you have to keep in mind what the audience wants.
The top 2 theories of adults when they listen to people is they need to know why they’re going to learn it and it has to be of immediate value. If you can’t hit those 2 in the first 5 minutes you’re done – the average adult leaves a presentation within 5 minutes. Either physically or mentally they check out and check Facebook or emails or simply stop listening to you – you’ve got to do those things within that 5 minutes.
