Training Presentation

Training Presentations
Training presentations are informative presentations that teach listeners how to do something. For example :- office manager explains to the employees how to use intercoms or voice-mail systems, personnel manager trains the new entrants by explaining them company’s about the roles and responsibilities of new job, etc. These training presentations can be informal or highly structured, from simple tips of experienced employees to a month long seminar.
How to make training presentations effective?
Like other presentation, training presentations involve the same principles and procedures. More specifically training presentations should involve:
1. Strategy.
2. Organizing the Informative Messages.
3. Effective Delivery.
1. Strategy: The strategy for effective training presentation involves the following:
(a) Cover only necessary information: The presenter may have thorough and a depth knowledge of the subject, but he has to present the essential in very simple way. If he covers the topic in too much detail, he is likely to bore or even antagonize his listeners. Therefore, he should avoid giving details. If the members of the audience want more information, they will probably ask for it.

(b) Link the Topic to the Audience: The presenter should link the topic to the needs of the audience. He has to dwell on audience’s benefits by listening to that topic.
(c) Involvement of Audience: Without involvement, members of the audience feel bored. Therefore their involvement should be there. For this, the presenter can, think about the questions that provoke audience’s thinking or channelizes their participation in the discussion.
2. Organizing the Message: For organizing the message to be delivered at training presentation, the researcher should:
(a) Start with an overall picture that explains the topic in brief. He should state the objectives of the presentation and its benefits to the audience.
(b) Emphasize the important points of the discussion.
(c) At the end summarize the main points that have been discussed.
3. Delivering the message: While delivering the message.
(a) Catch audience’s interest.
(b) Ensure that the voice is audible to the listeners.
(c) Use appropriate audio-visual aids that clarify the message and explain the message in pictures.
(d) Answer queries of the audience to their satisfaction.
