I’m starting a course on how to start up your own buisness, at the end of the 12 weeks we are asked to give a presentation to how our buisness is going to be a success. Would you please give me some advise on giving a presentation as I have never done one before. Kind regards Michelle Matthews
To start with, don’t worry about it! Most people get nervous when they have to give a presentation, it only natural to be nervous. So, if you are nervous, congratulate your self on doing it right, and then just get on with it. After all, your audience will all be people you know and who have become friends over the 12 weeks. You could no doubt talk to them all individually about your business without getting nervous, in fact you probably already have.
As to the content and structure of your presentation, ask yourself what will the other people on the course want to hear from you? Why would they want to listen?
I suggest that you start with an engaging opening remark, maybe paraphrase Martin Luther King’s famous speech “I have a dream”.
I don’t know what your business is but if it were a florist you could start by saying “I have a dream that everyone, all the lovers, all the housewives, all the people who would like to thank someone, all the interior designers, all the new start up businesses, will be able to give my flowers to someone and brighten up their day, to say thank you, and to make the world a nicer place to live.”
Then tell them how you are going to make this possible. Use examples of things that you have learnt on the course. For example, how you are going to define your target market, and how you are going to attract them to buy your products and services. What will make your business stand out from all the others.
Then at the end of the presentation tell your class mates how they could utilise your products or services to help them either in their start up business or in their personal lives. You may even get your first customer from someone who has been on the course with you.
I hope this has helped, I know it is only a short answer but if you would like to discuss it further send me an email to graham “at” youngmarkets.co.uk and I’d be happy to help.
I wish you every success with your course and your business.
