The Nine Presentation Sins 

And how you can avoid them


Presentation Sin 1: Wasting time

Start on time and finish on time.


Presentation Sin 2: Boring your audience

Give them key points that they can digest. Don’t read your speech. Package the information with your voice, body language and style to make it interesting.


Presentation Sin 3: Lacking passion

Believe in your message and let them know how much you believe in it. Passion is captivating, contagious and more convincing than logic.


Presentation Sin 4: Confusing your audience

Keep your message clear. Eliminate unnecessary information and conflicting messages. Use words that they understand. Repeat your message three times.


Presentation Sin 5: Insulting your audience

Talk to them and with them - but not down to them. Don’t make jokes about the audience. Don’t assume that you know what they think, know or have done.


Presentation Sin 6: Not clear about your purpose/message

Ask yourself why you are giving this speech. Be able to state your message in one short clear phrase. Then build your presentation around that. If you can’t – don’t.


Presentation Sin 7: Information overload

Give them what they need to know to do what you want them to do. Don’t overload them with too much information.


Presentation Sin 8: Stuck in your rut of delivery – unable to flex to the audience

Be prepared to alter your presentation to reach the audience in the way that is best for them. It is not about you. You must reach them with your message.


Presentation Sin 9: Using slides that are boring, irrelevant, or confusing

Only use visual aids that reinforce your message. PowerPoint will never rescue you from poor presentation skills. You are you best messenger.
