To start off, I have been working on my presentation skills throughout the first quarter of the school year. Furthermore, the three presentations were spread apart, starting with talking about what we did during the summer, followed by a chapter from the book called Nickel and Dime, ending with a bank presentation. I have taken notes and have been given feedback sheets from my classmates and teacher to provide evidence for each presentation. Now, I will evaluate myself throughout all three of my presentations, the positives, the negatives, and much more.
2.1 It is self-evident that communication and interpersonal skills are crucial in the workplace. Good two-way communication is important to enable the flow of information in an effective way whether it be verbal or non-verbal. Good communication has a positive impact on the performance of the team including; everyone is clear what is expected from them, they receive good feedback and recognition of achievements which makes staff feel valued and boosts employee morale. The manager needs to be approachable and have a non-threatening manner so
The most difficult aspect of testifying is having stage fright. Some officers and or people are not comfortable with speaking out loud and clear for all to hear in a public courtroom setting. Not only must the person testifying have to go through a direct examination but also a cross examination where it is intended to destroy the person's credibility.
To analyse the presentation and teamwork I need to be able to understand everyone has different experiences and different ways of working and had their own view on teamwork. My confidence grew as I got to know the team. Giving the presentation has helped me with my confidence, which I will need when I am working in the health care. I have also learned to speak up more and encourage others to take part when they where being quiet and not pulling their weight. It was good to do research using the appropriate methods, looking at journals and professional sites. I managed to hold it together during the presentation in front of everyone. I knew the presentation was not going to go as well has it could due to the lack of practice. The reason I was so nervous was
The project was about the book we read “We Are Witnesses”, we had to read the book in class and outside of class with our group members, while completing some worksheets of the main events in the story. One of the stories that I read was about a girl named Anne Frank who was with her family living in an attic with another family during World War 2. They were able to live in the attic until they were found and sent to death camps. This helped me in communicating ideas because I was able to present a project to my classmates were my group and I explained to them the story from the point of view of kids that were around our age. This also helped me with my way of presenting In front oi an audience because I'm usually nervous when I present and I speak fast, but in this presentation I was able to speak more fluently and feel more confident when I was presenting. This presentation was different from my other presentations because in this presentation I talked about the different types of life experiences little kids had to go through with their family members, it also made me more nervous because it wasn’t easy for me to talk about other people’s
I used a range of different features (e.g. audio, pictures, videos, etc.) to make the presentation more entertaining and to give examples of what I am talking about (for example the different eras of Hip Hop music) (Gallo 2016). I also made sure to use positive body language and hand gestures to describe what I was talking about (Edwards 2016). If I could do the presentation again I would stop my bad habits such as clicking the pen and put my hands in my pockets as it distracts the audience from the message I am are trying to get across. If I had to start this module again I would try and get more involved with the group projects and try to present something to the class at the end of every lesson. I feel that I need to learn about how to present to a larger crowd or attend some professional training to further improve and enhance my presenting skills so I am more comfortable while presenting. The next time I am presenting I can use the Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle (1988) so I can continuously critic my presentations which will help me especially in the workplace as it will help me pitch an idea of mine or presenting myself in an interview to show why I am suited for a job
I ensured whilst I made my presentation that I spoke clearly and steadily. I have a tendency to talk quickly so I paid particular attention to controlling the speed of my voice. I also ensured I maintained eye contact with my audience and tried not to focus just on one individual.
We mainly did so by first discussing what we were each going to be discussing in our segment of the presentation and made sure that each of our segments directly related to the topic. After our discussion we began to formulate slides for each of our segments taking information and research from our papers and putting it into a bulleted form that would be easy to read on each slide. We also made sure to include images to keep our presentation interesting and captivating while also getting our point across. After we had finished our presentation and were satisfied with the information we checked it over for formatting mistakes as well as grammatical errors. Then on the morning before our presentation we ran through our presentation multiple times sorting out and issues that could make the presentation seem poor. We then delivered our presentation and completed the entirety Task
As well as being a chance to incorporate individuals talents within presentation new skills and the development of existing skills. Personally I feel as though I have a good level of skill for presenting an idea however I lack in the preparation are of a presentation I prefer to present something to an audience rather than find and conduct research for a presentation. However the other people in my group were good at finding information and crafting a brief outline around the presentation. This worked quite well for our group as we had a couple of confident speakers whom brought the presentation together. Where others succeeded in producing and finding evidence to back up our stated methods in which work should be done.
Work at listening - One thing I really liked about my whole group is how enthusiastic everyone was to work together on this presentation. Every member of the group showed that they actually wanted to do the group, and really like that we were all working together. We all showed a lot of interest and lacked not energy when working on it. So many great ideas came from each individual and they way we all discussed everything made it so easy to get the presentation done in a timely manner. No one was on there phone when we were discussing things, we were all tuned into the conversation giving all our

In a Learning team, presentation skills are very important. I would have to say that Presentation Skills would be one of my personal weaknesses in the Learning team. It is difficult for me at times to stand up in front of a room full of people and present a project or conduct some sort of meeting. In order to do so, you have to have confidence that what you?re talking about is accurate and the motivation to actually get up do it. My biggest fear of a presentation would be tripping and falling on my face or
