Companies use differentiated brand benefits as a way to stand out from competitors. Ultimately our customers are going to decide how they will react to a company's brand and will “self” position relative to other businesses.

Therefore, we can use an assessment of our position to understand how the company's brand fits into targeted market segments relative to its competitors.

Meetings need to be efficient – put simply it is an essential part of a strong business process to drive unnecessary waste and therefore to reduce associated cost.

The first five minutes of any meeting are crucial, and that to encourage participation during the meeting, you must set the tone in the correct way. Provide for a strong engagement by drawing people into the meeting subject from the very beginning.

SofemaOnline (SOL) www.sofemaonline.com considers the challenges of Public Speaking and how we can benefit from a knowledge of non verbal techniques

Realities of Non Verbal Communication

Lets Consider a few of the realities we face related to Non Verbal Communication Techniques.

Our words only count for small percentage of the actual success of our message, in fact the major part of our message is transmitted by our Body Language, Facial Expression as well as the tone of our voice.

Our audience is generally looking for a positive experience – they are not expecting to be subjected to negative feelings and emotions.

SofemaOnline (www.sofemaonline.com) looks at effective use of PowerPoint to support Presentations

PowerPoint slides are an excellent tool and aid to learning particularly if used effectively and can emphasise a point as well as provide humour and at the same time become an anchor for a message.

Consider some PowerPoint (PPT) challenges which we face as trainers:

a) It is possible to “hide” behind a PPT presentation

b) It can overload with information

c) The content may not be strong

What is an Ice Breaker?

Ice breakers serve a multiple purpose by helping to relax the participants as well as building an open relationship and fostering a team relationship.

Ice breakers which appear spontaneous travel better and can be more effective than those which appear to mechanical in delivery. Always be non-judgmental with your communication to the delegates.

An Aviation Leadership and Management Skills Development Blog

Introduction

Let’s consider why are we making the presentation or speech, as well as to consider the reason the audience is in front of us?

Our first goal should be to get the message across to our audience that our objectives are in alignment - means that “their goals” are “our goals”. If we achieve this we should find the audience receptive.

Win over your audience by sharing that you respect their time and you do not intend waste it. That you are prepared and looking forward to sharing the information within your presentation.
