My first year, I worked on a business plan to revamp the website of Silver Cloud Inn (a local hotel company). I knew about technology, but nothing about networking or public speaking. The first week, I dropped off 100 customer surveys at the front desks of two hotels. I received three responses. Through trial and error, I eventually found myself in contact with the company’s COO and had the inside track to a great business plan. Still, I had to present to judges in competition. Fortunately, I was speaking about a project I was passionate about—improving a website that hadn’t been redesigned in 10 years. This made the iterative
One of the great things about mentoring is that it is something that has been around for ages. In fact, its origins can be traced back to the Greeks and is even found in the ancient legend of Odysseus. Mentoring occurs when one person elects to pass their knowledge onto another person.
1. What is the audience's attitude toward me? Have I established my credibility as an ethical, responsible speaker? If not, you will have to work harder to earn the respect of your audience.
Mentoring is a process where a more experience person creates a supportive relationship with an inexperienced, mostly younger person with the aim of providing information and advice. The process of mentoring must benefit both parties.
Be clear about what ideas you want the speaker to address. Do you simply want to motivate your sales team, or are you focused on improving your employees’ tech skills? Know
A good presenter is someone who ensures the information being presented is interesting, is not made up or fake, not a speech or written essay being read off paper. As someone who is performing a presentation, you should always ask these questions to ensure the audience is getting the best possible experience. 1.How does/is your audience (going to) feel about the subject being presented? What would they want to hear me talk about? 2.Is my delivery being executed in such a way the audience gets the clear message in the tone desired? Ensure you're getting the message across and getting across the way you want. 3.What is the objective of my speech? What is my speech trying to accomplish? What is the motive? 4.How would I feel if I were the audience?
I would add more pictures of the youths and staff on the main page for the viewers to each their attention the first time. Add more designs to stand out from other websites that are similar to YELLS. Have the viewer notice the website looks good and appealing but also have them believe the program is also an good program as well because that first impression counts for a lot . Boast the socail media networks by posting more pictures and calander events for the exposer. Starting with the facebook page since its the most popular between the three. Build up more fans on the page and attract more followers . Use the timeline from featuring posts and promoting as well. Also I would create an Instagram account because of the number of users that is present and to come in the future to also get YELLS word out more. Using the pictures to show the different stories that occur in the organization. Using Hashtags that some people may come
I watched a Ted talk by Michael Norton on “How to buy happiness”. For the most part he did a good job delivering this speech and keeping the audience into his information. After looking at the grading rubric I would give him a 21 out of 25 on his speech. He started off the speech with saying what he was going to talk about. He didn’t use any attention getter and went straight to his preview. Overall, he basically had one main point on that you can buy happiness. He looked at it from spending money on yourself to spending it on someone else then showed how someone was happier when spending it on someone else. He talked about different studies that were done to prove this. His presentation aid definitely helped his organization and his ability
Not a big turn out in attendees. About 20-25 people which half were family and/or Members who they allowed to speak their input after the presentation. (which I have attached the powerpoint they will be using).
Seminars are really not my cup of tea, I struggle with public or group speaking. I do try to force myself through them when asked, with the hope that it eventually gets easier, but it never does. Generally, I do small group brewing demonstrations one Saturday a month, I find this format much easier in part because I am so passionate about my processes as well as it being much more informal and requires the active participation of the group. My actual start in brewing came as complete shock to everyone including myself, I have never really been a big beer fan. Several years ago, Adrian took me to this place in Huntington Beach called Brewbaker’s for Father’s Day. Brewbaker’s allows people to come in and use their professional brewing equipment
Working with others takes a lot more effort than when individually. Planning, communicating, and implementing are the three main components to writing a successful presentation. When planning, I had to really make sure I was listening and understanding how the group wanted to address Quora. This was important because it would affect our tone and it needed to seem as one. I would express my ideas when I felt towards the website. Then I created an outline to highlight the main points we wanted to go over in our presentation. After everyone agreed on it, parts were then assigned for everyone to construct their slide script. What changed for me were my ideas. I would build off from my group and go more in depth of the analyzing parts of Quora. I learned to keep an open mind and be flexible with my
(11/9/17)-At the beginning of the webinar, I introduced myself and informed the audience that I was filling in for their regular hostess. Afterwards, I presented the event professional etiquette and the next event date along with. Then, I introduced the
Something very common is how long these speeches can be. If it took me 15 minutes to accurately describe my business I don't think I could ever really be a success. What we want to be able to do is break down our business
