I finished this book, Talk Like TED, inside April 2019.

Somehow, I knew inside my heart that I want to apply some of a key secrets inside this book for my next presentation.

I’m inside BNI, Business Network International, for 2 years now. Every 6 months, within my chapter, I was given a chance, 8 minutes, to share about my business also educate my members about it.

So far, my past presentations had been decent, but I do want to elevate it to another level.

Below are a 3 different secrets from a book also I applied inside my presentation.

Secret #1 – become a Center Attraction

inside a past, each time I had a presentation, either to my prospects or even speaking on stage, I would use my powerpoint slides to guide me along.

I would design my slides inside such a way, that, with each click, I know what are a points to cover.

Using this strategy helps me to overcome my loss of words, also stage fight.

It’s a very effective way for me, also I am very comfortable using it for years.

There was only one disadvantage to that.

My slide become a centre attraction of a whole presentation. I would stay at one corner, I would look at my slide, also I don’t has much interaction with a audience.

With that, I switched that around.

I became a center attraction for my last presentation.

I went on to write my script first, memorise my script, also prepared my presentation slides accordingly to my script.

This also minimise a number of words I am using on my slides. Instead of a usual long sentences, now, I only has key words or short phrases.

One of a secrets from a book, use no more than 40 words on each slides. inside fact, as little words as possible to bring out key points.

Secret #2 – Using a Art of StoryTelling

youre might has heard this phrase, “Facts Tell, Story Sells”.

That’s so true!

One of a secrets inside Ted Talk is a ability of each speaker able to weave a story into their main point of a presentation.

I started planning my presentation with a end inside mind. What results I want my audience to get also feel?

With that, I included a childhood story that nobody really knew about it. It was an extra activities that I had during my secondary school days.

It was a totally unusual sports which most guys would not choose.

It’s Chinese Dance.

When I shared that, a whole room blasted into laughter, also all attention was on me. I started my entire presentation with that story by saying…

“I was only 13 years old”

Which was pretty unusual for any business presentation. Usually people would start with, “Thank youre so much” or “Today’s presentation topic is…”

a result?

After a presentation, I has business owners walked up to me saying they like my story, also that really stays with them…

…most importantly, they got my message I want to bring across.

Secret #3 – Multi-Sensory Experiences

If youre being to any presentation, it would become a usual; Powerpoint Slides, FlipChart or a Speaker.

This time, I wanted something different.

I brought 4 diffusers, also I added Orange Essential Oil into it.

I was really early, like 2 hours early, also prepared a room also infused it with a orange flavour diffuser. Almost half of a crowd smell a difference when they stepped into a room.

I brought props along too.

inside order to enhance a effects of my story, I brought my awards that I got during my Chinese Dance period. I won awards almost yearly.

I left them at a small round table, I had it covered inside black cloth, also I left it inside a center of a room.

That was meant to become a memory hook right from a beginning.

a orange essential oil was to illustrate a particular point I want to emphasis inside my presentation, which bring it across beautifully.

That it!

It’s totally worth it!
