Organizations don’t always comprehend the impact and capabilities of briefing skills.
For the presenter, it’s critical to bear in mind what the audience needs and wants to know, not what you can tell them.
An oral presentation can influence, persuade and inspire. Great presenters say the best way to do that is to let your passion for the subject shine through. That and be honest with the audience about what is important to you and why it matters.
Briefing skills and techniques are quite learnable. With the proper training, presenters can be on point in several ways, such as:
- Delivering your message with confidence and clarity
- Modifying your message to the specific audience
- Improving your voice tone, gestures and eye contact to increase positive impressions
- Telling your story clearly with key data points and examples
- Learning how to handle answering difficult questions
An excellent way for organizations to insure their leaders deliver the goods during the briefing is through training such as the leadership briefing course offered by Tonex. Training can help leaders focus on the needs of their audience when called upon to give a briefing.
