Tips For Topnotch Presentations – Developing an Effective Vocal Style

In learning to deliver powerful, confident talks, one of the best tools to develop is your voice. By your use of words, your tone, and volume you can bring an added sparkle to a presentation that will make it enjoyable and memorable. These are five ways to use your speaking style to help you get your message across.

Tip 1. Use a conversational tone. While many people tense up at the thought of giving a speech, a conversation is much easier. Conversation is personal, calm, and it is not scripted. Being conversational allows you to tell the story at a more comfortable pace for you and your listeners. This mindset also sets you up to be responsive to cues from your audience, and allows the presentation to feel more intimate and more productive. If you are attuned to your audience you will be able to tell if they are fully engaged, when something is confusing, and when they agree with you. In turn, when an audience senses that you are responsive to them, they will be even more attentive.

Tip 2. Use a conversational pace. Another advantage to taking a conversational tone is that many people with naturally rapid speech pattern will speak more slowly in natural conversation than in a prepared talk. For most of us, this means consciously slowing the pace to deliver the message at a rate that allows your listeners to assimilate it. When you speak at a measured pace the audience has time to listen and to absorb your points in a natural flow and can appreciate the story you convey.

Tip 3. Project your voice to the back of the room. It’s no surprise that the easier you are to hear, the better the listeners will follow what you are saying. Making the effort to speak clearly and loudly enough, will often help slow the pace of your speech, which also aids your audience in comprehension. When you project your voice, it projects confidence and enthusiasm, which holds audience interest. This does take some practice to learn how to project without necessarily raising your voice to an uncomfortable volume. However, it is well worth the effort to be able to command a room with just a few well-spoken words.

Tip 4. Vary tone and volume for vocal interest. A flat monotone voice will lose even the most dedicated listener after a while. Allowing your voice some natural modulation (without going into a sing-song) generates interest and keeps the audience attentive. Changing your vocal volume can also be a tool to bring the audience to the edge of their seats as you get a little quieter, or to wake them up a bit as you add emphasis. Some modulation makes your voice pleasant to listen to and that alone will keep the audience with you.

Tip 5. Request audience participation. In settings where it is appropriate, getting your audience to use their voices, or to respond in some other way (show of hands, clapping, etc.), is a great way to increase interest and attention. Ask a question and give listeners time to answer. Take a poll. Ask for ideas. This makes your presentation interactive and fun and allows you to bring in new ideas from your listeners. It’s also a good way to find out if your message was perceived as you intended and to correct any misinterpretations that arise.

Using some or all of these tips will help you hone your vocal repertoire to deliver talks with confidence and your own personal flair. In the next article of this series, I’ll cover tips for the development of visual aids that can enhance your message and add another dimension to your presentations.

10 Tips for a Photo Book As a Christmas Present

Christmas is fast approaching and the pre-Christmas rush for gifts will soon begin. If you are one of the many people who have yet to decide what to get your loved ones, then don’t rush out the door just yet!
Have you considered creating an online photo book? It’s the perfect gift idea for any member of the family. Here’s why:

It’s fun to read – With computers it’s easy to store many photos in one place. But let’s be honest. It isn’t exactly engaging or fun clicking through picture after picture. With a photo book you create brightly coloured, engaging pages with multiple photos, and if you wish, captions explaining them.

It’s fun to create – With the tools available you can experiment as many times as your want with various layouts to find the one that suits you.

Avoid the Christmas crowds – Since you create and order your book online, you don’t even have to step out the door. You will be one of the lucky few who do not have to wrestle with crowds of Christmas shoppers.

It’s affordable – Prices depend on how large you wish to make your book and how many pages you want. Generally for a 20 page photo book, prices range from a reasonable $20.00 to $40.

Create a physical copy of digital photos – With the advent of the digital age most photos are downloaded onto your computer. However, it is often difficult to showcase these photos, and nothing compares to the feeling of holding a physical copy of a picture in your hand. Photo books create physical copies that your loved ones can easily carry around and show their friends.

It’s easy to make – Step by step software guides you through the creation process. Whether you are a complete artistic newbie or a graphic designer, the software will generally cater to your needs.

You stay in control – You are given suggested templates for your book, but you ultimately decide the design and layout.

Organize your photos – No more random jumbles of photos, or folders full of picture files with only meaningless numerals to order them. You organize your photos into chapters or into completely separate photo books for easy future reference.

Add cool features to your photo book – For a small extra charge, many sites will allow you to choose specialized covers. For example, you may choose hard back, soft back, leather or silk covers.

Add a theme to your photo book – Choose from various themes, from special occasions, to family, to travel. For a son or daughter you may choose a colourful theme. For a spouse or partner you may want a more romantic theme. Or since it’s for Christmas you may just go with a Christmas theme. The possibilities are many.

If you do decide to give a photo book as a Christmas present, do not leave it to the last minute, as the postal service can get bogged down over December. When creating your book, don’t forget, that it is a “photo” book. Therefore the focus should be on the photos with text there to help explain the photos. Or you could do it completely text free.

Get something a little less conventional for your loved ones this Christmas, with even more sentimental meaning. As people often say, a gift made is better than a gift bought. A photo book is a great gift idea for all ages, and is sure to show your loved ones just how much they mean to you!
