Simon Raybould's 4 Tips For Crafting Great Speeches & Presentations

Simon Raybould gave us these 4 tips for crafting great speeches and presentations.

  • MINDSET
  • CONTENT
  • DESIGN
  • DELIVERY

 

On Practicing

You can over practice. Simon told us that the best way to practice is to work on the sections you keep on fluffing and leave the ones that flow naturally to you.

That way you show up and come across fresh.

And you should be calm and a lot more confident about not messing up.

Simon Raybould's Cocktail of Success

I asked Simon what his cocktail of success was. Here is the recipe.

Cocktail-of-Success-1
  • Equal measures of Content and Design
  • Topped up with Own Brand delivery
  • Add plenty of ice to be as cool and calm as possible
  • Serve strained

Best Person To Be Stuck In An Elevator With

Simon had 2 people he wanted to be stuck in an elevator with.

A Buyer From Waterstones

Simon would strike up conversation with them and make sure he told them all about his new PPD Presentation Pack. Getting it onto the shelves to help more people with their presentation skills is his current goal.

Do You Need Photography of You Speaking?

I've worked with a lot of professional speakers to help them capture key collateral to help them prove they are captivating speakers that other event organisers trust with their audiences.

If you have a gig coming up and you need photography of this, I can help. Take a look at my Bespoke Service. This is designed to be tailored exactly to your particular needs like:

  • Shots of you with attendees afterwards
  • Shots of you backstage
  • You doing your thing in the spotlight
