How to give a successful presentation, so that audiences can easily swallow and digest so they can absorb the proper nutrients of the presentation, and achieve positive results. 

Introduction: There are many presentations here, there, and everywhere but only effective presentations can bring positive outcomes according to our goals. For example, if the food cannot be easily digested, then we cannot be benefit from the nutrients. When you see, understand, and feel the message, then it is activated! Making connections with the audience is one of the keys to success.

All presentations are not the same but many important presentation cannot be successful if one small screw is missing. For example, if the sound is not clear or it is too low, the audience cannot absorb the content.

  1. Make the title as a clear reflection or mini version of whole presentation. Great presentations start with catchy presentation titles.
  2. Make the presentation clear, visible, listenable, understandable, and warm: "Too high or too low, it will be a big problem to eat and absorb."
  3. Make the presentation organized, balanced, full, and simple: point form so that the audience can take the message easily with patience: our presentation should have proper introduction, body, and conclusion. Not too big or too small.
  4. Bring something new to grab audiences' attention magnetically: according to our ability, we can bring new change.
  5. Make it simple point-to-point: there are different audiences but if we can make most of them absorb the content, then it is a big achievement.
  6. With balanced structures, make sure the audiences can absorb the nutrients: title, introduction, body, conclusion. 
  7. Try to bring something unusual, new, positive, if possible. Presentations should not necessarily be traditional, or always the same. We can take the initiative to add or subtract. For example: use a poem, song, riddle, and play a connected game.
  8. Sometimes throw them a challenge, or ask a question to build a strong connection with the audience. Try to tell story: a practical story is better.
  9. Please keep the mindset that you will be flexible for the presentation if it is necessary. Have options. Move your gear according to the flow. You can minimize and maximize your plan according to the circumstances, especially in children's classes.
  10. Use art in right place: art makes everything gorgeous. Pick a simple piece, make it gorgeous, big by different art concepts. If you make the article more visible (bigger in size) so the message will be easy to read for all audiences.
  11. Make evaluation directly or indirectly. Feedback is important to know the presentation's status.

Conclusion: Our presentation goal is not just saying something because we have to say something. Our goal is to make sure the audience receives the messages as a whole, starts brainstorming, and feels activated in their life.
