Presentation Skills and Your Way Ahead

With the Prime Minister announcing that it will propagate the idea of ‘Make in India’ and promote entrepreneurship, many angel investors and people with moneybags are flocking to India to start up their own ventures. Alternatively, some of them are becoming equity participants in other people’s ventures.

IIT alumni are mainly doing the former while the latter is resorted to people among their friends. Alumni from the same school or college are funding startups, which have their school or college colleagues as promoters.  This was the trend followed in earlier years and that is continuing to this day.

In the phenomenon of people from the same school funding startups started by their school chums as promoters, there is a trust factor involved and therefore, the investors do not have any fear of losing their money. This is because the trust factor is involved in it. This trust factor obviates the need of any kind of security from the promoters.

In such a scenario, presentation skills are very important. Imagine, if a promoter goes to his school chums for funding, he will at least have to give them a presentation of his concept, which he has proposed. If they are ready to back the idea, then he will do well.

However, the promoter will require effective presentation skills in order to convince his chums that his idea is worth backing. Therefore, the importance of presentation skills in today’s times. Presenting the information hidden in an idea clearly and effectively is a key skill to secure in today’s times.

Such presentation skills are required in any field, irrespective of whether you are a student, administrator or an executive, or someone who has set up his own business. In the latter case, the promoter will require effective presentation skills to put across his idea to his investors.

If you are a student, your presentation skills will be tested when you convey to your examiners what you have learnt in a particular subject.

If you are an administrator or an executive, presentation skills will be required to convince your bosses about the work you have done apart from conveying to your team what your idea about a certain project is. When in a job, people at the managerial level generally require presentation skills in order to make presentations for their seniors or for themselves.

Even if you take up a field other than those mentioned above, like politics, anchoring, marketing, business development, writing, etc, you will require effective presentation skills in all of them.

In preparing a presentation, the one skill that is primarily used exhaustively is your PowerPoint skills. Therefore, if you wish to be good at presentation skills, it is always better to learn making effective presentations using Power point slides.

Although, it is said that you will need Power point application to prepare slides for your presentation, at times, you may not require this Power point application but may require some other application to work with. Delivering an effective, clear and concise presentation requires tremendous hard-work and dedication.

This dedication and capacity for doing hard work will come with tremendous experience and patience. In this article, I will attempt to give you some tips to spice up your presentation skills. This article lists down the 10 tips to give effective presentations.

What is a Presentation?

A presentation is a tool that is used to communicate the idea to the target audience. This is modified as per the available situation like in case if you are talking to a small group, you will not use sophisticated tools in the presentation.

If however, you are addressing a large group, you will use sophisticated tools like an over-head projector, slides, transparencies, etc.

How to prepare a presentation?

Preparing a presentation is the single most important aspect of any idea conveying activity. This is the foundation on which your idea is based and therefore, you should dedicate as much time to it as you possible to avoid any hiccups later on. A good presentation will ensure that you have thought out your message very carefully and that will help boost your confidence no end.

How to organize the presentation material?

Irrespective of whether your presentation has been prepared for a formal office setting or an informal club meeting, it should always be crisp and clear.

You should always know what you wish to say and the order in which you want to say it. Working out an effective structure for your message will alleviate any kind of nervousness in your mind towards the presentation.

How to write your own presentation?

When writing your presentation, you should have already worked out in your mind, what to include in it. The structure of the presentation should include an introduction, the main message and finally the conclusion.

How to single out on a presentation method?

When you decide on an appropriate presentation method, you will first check the size of the audience; you have to convey your message to. In case if, the size is small, then there is no point using sophisticated presentation tools.

If however, you are conveying your message to a large audience, then it is imperative that you use a projector, audiovisual equipment, etc.

How to manage your presentation notes?

When you start giving presentations, you will realize that it is important for you to recollect what you wish to say in your presentation. For this, either you will need a teleprompter or you will prepare notes on a piece of paper. In the latter case, it becomes imperative for you to organize your presentation notes and manage your material

presentation-skillsHow to work with visual aids?

Visual aids should be used if an only if they are necessary to maintain interest and assist in the comprehension of your presentation. In case they are proving barriers to your communication, then it is better you do not use them. Using Visual Aids to demonstrate your technological competence is a foolish act and is strongly advised against.

How to present data?

Any effective presentation will involve working with data and presenting such data is an art in any presentation. Many people in the audience might be uninterested in the number game and may only be interested in the text material that you have to present.

Still some others will be particularly interested in the data that you present in order to understand the situation in totality. Therefore, it should be presented in such a way that, it is well understood by those who wish to refer to the data in order to understand the presentation.

How to manage the event?

The deftness with which you manage your event will go a long way in ensuring its success. In this, you will ensure that the seating is well laid out, the final preparation before the event is done well in advance, how you cope with nervousness forms the cornerstone of your presentation, creation of rapport with the audience, your tone of voice and language, managing sound systems and microphones and finally positioning and body language.

How to cope with presentation nerves?

Some people develop goose bumps when they are asked to give a presentation. They are said to suffer nerves. Either people like these can keep pacing the floor of the presentation hall before the actual event or they can carry a stress ball in their hands before the event.

Another remedy could be to get some sound sleep before the day of the presentation. Deficient sleep is said to cause insomnia and that can lead to forgetfulness during the actual presentation.

How to deal with presentation questions?

After any presentation, generally there is a question round. In this round, the audience witnessing the presentation asks questions to the presenter.

Such questions should be dealt with smartly. Only questions pertaining to the subject matter covered during the presentation should be tackled. Those questions, which are out of the scope of the presentation, should be given the short shrift by excusing oneself.

How to present under special circumstances?

Presentations carried out under special circumstances should be tailored as per the audience taste. The presentation is given for the audience and therefore their tastes should be kept in mind when making the presentation. If the audience is blind then special handouts should be circulated in braille script, which explain the topic of the presentation and its content matter.

Personal Effectiveness with Effective Communication

Effective Communication

This article is penned by Harish Desai and gives insight into how effective communication helps a person in being effective overall. Read on for more.

Personal effectiveness is a branch dealing with the achievement of personal goals and ambitions.

The power of positive thinking and positive psychology are two of the factors that are the cornerstone of personal effectiveness. Many of the ideas on personal effectiveness are derived from the field of business and management.

Well-known names like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Peter Drucker, etc are known to be effective in propagating some idea, which has revolutionized the industry.

For example, Bill Gates is known for his marketing strategies, Peter Drucker is known for his emphasis on ‘management by objectives’, a principle which got him the sobriquet ‘father of modern management’.

These people made a name for themselves because whatever they propagated through their writings or through their work, when implemented gave revolutionary results. Another very well-known figure who had propagated practices of management through her books is Dale Carnegie.

Her book “How to win friends and influence people”, which was first published in 1936 emphasized on success in the endeavor of how to influence people’s mindsets such that they start behaving as you want them to.

There are also more technical concepts like lean thinking and six sigma brought out by eminent researchers. Such concepts have given management a technical flavor.

When talking of effective communication, the word ‘ideas’ comes to mind. Ideas are communicated to stakeholders through effective communication. Communication is defined as the activity of exchanging information between two or more participants to make up an idea. These messages are exchanged under certain rules and regulations called as signs or semiotic rules. Talking of the basic steps of communication, they include forming of the communicative intent, formulating the message to communicate, encoding the message, transmission of the signal carrying the message, reception of the signal, decoding of the message and finally interpretation of the received message at the other end.

Communication is effective when the barriers to it are removed. These barriers include physical barriers, system design, attitudinal barriers, ambiguity of words or phrases used, individual linguistic ability, physiological barriers, cultural differences and finally bypassing. These barriers have the potential to retard or distort the message or intention of the message delivered thus rendering the communication ineffective. An ineffective communication leads to a distorted message and consequently wrong decision-making. If the decision-making is erroneous, consequences will be dire. In order to avoid these consequences, it is necessary that communication be effective. For this, the message should be delivered through the right channels so that it is not intercepted by anyone in transit.

Personal effectiveness cannot be possible without having effective communication. Your communication will assist you in communicating your goals and ambitions. Once these are conveyed, the modus operandi of achieving the goal should be conveyed. In this way, the whole blueprint to achieve the designated goals should be conveyed through the right channels to the right people. Once this is done, then efforts are made to work according to the blueprint. The blueprint acts as the bible and guides you on how to achieve your goal. Thus, we can say that effective communication leads to personal effectiveness.

Learn Speaking English Fluently and Correctly

Learn Speaking English

With this article penned by Harish Desai, you can learn Speaking English in a fluent and correct manner. It is not a tough task, just requires hard work!

With intent to compete with the global world, our politicians opened the country to foreign participation in the year 1991. Policy changes were made to invite foreign participation in the business environment. This is what we call liberalization, privatization and globalization.

The main objective of this effort was to make India one of the fastest developing economies of the world as compared to the first world countries. This would also enable Indian companies to compete with organizations doing business in more than one country.

English was the commonly followed language of business in all these companies. Therefore, it became imperative for the staff of Indian companies to improve their English skills.

This article talks about how you can learn to speak fluent and correct English. It is a general perception among people that English is a difficult language to learn. However, they lack knowledge of how English speaking can be improved in terms of fluency and accuracy.

With the right training, learning English as a second language is pure cakewalk. English speaking fluency and accuracy is a skill that each individual who wishes to work in the new business environment, should have in ample proportions. If you follow the methods laid down in this article being able to speak English fluently and accurately will not be difficult.

One error that people make is that they try to learn English grammar in order to speak better English. They do this because they are unaware of the fact that learning English grammar will not help them speak English fluently and accurately.

Knowledge of grammar and comprehension can improve your English writing skills and not English conversation skills. In order to master English conversation, it is necessary to learn conversational English.

So, if you wish to learn to speak English fluently and correctly, it is better to concentrate on learning conversational English rather than memorizing the rules of grammar.

Communication is complete when a speaker delivers a message to his listener and the listener has understood it thoroughly to give him an accurate reply. Now, in order to formulate an accurate reply, it is necessary for the receiver of the message to listen attentively to the speaker.

Therefore, if you wish to speak English fluently and accurately, it is necessary for you to listen to the person talking to you to understand him or her thoroughly so that you can then make a fitting reply to give him. Therefore, listening is a necessary skill to be mastered in order to improve your English fluency and accuracy.

At times, the social circles in which you move also influence the way you speak. For example, I was brought up in a joint family. My parents were not educated.

However, I learnt to speak and write English excellently from childhood because I used to spend a lot of time with my aunty, who was also a student, when I was a kid.

I communicated with her in English so that I could improve my English conversation skills. I have her to thank if you like this article today. She was a catalyst in the process of my learning to speak and write English fluently and accurately.

Like in other languages, English too has its share of slangs and phrases. If you translate these words literally, then you will get confused. If ever you come across such words, you will do better to ask the speaker the meaning of those words and the context in which they have been used.

Moreover, it is always better if you avoid a literal translation of whatever is spoken. Many words in English carry meanings, which are different from their literal meanings. Such words are called as phrases.

These are a set of works used to denote a particular meaning. For example, the words: cup of tea, is used to describe something that one does very well.

Another deterrent for people to speak fluently and accurately is their accent. Indians and some other countries have people who do not have English as a first language, or who do not have English as their mother tongues. These people tend to speak English with a typical regional accent, which comes from their native language.

For example, South Indians in India have a typical accent with which they speak English. If anyone were to hear them speaking, he would know that they come from south India.

Similarly, if people from Gujarat were to speak English, they will speak with a particular accent. This accent deters some people from speaking fluent and accurate English.

If you wish to learn to speak English fluently and accurately, one of the ways of doing so is to keep reading good English articles.

Reading the leading dailies written in English will provide you with excellent vocabulary, which you can use in order to converse in English. You can read an article, highlight the difficult words in it, look into a dictionary to find out the meanings of those words and then you can use them in your conversation.

Vocabulary is the cornerstone of any language and you can improve your vocabulary in this way.  Although, this is a time-consuming method, it is a surefire way to learn to speak fluent and accurate English.

Another way of improving your English conversational skills is to speak with people who are better speakers than you are. You can always ask them to correct you, in case you make mistakes in speaking. As you converse with them, you can slowly and gradually pick up the nuances of the English language and speak better.

Initially, people get intimidated in the presence of others who speak better English. This should be done away with, in the interest of speaking good English. If you are shy or you get intimidated, you will be the loser as then you will not learn the language.

Therefore, be unabashed when conversing with people who know the language better than you do. Thus, leaning to speak English fluently and accurately is not very difficult if you were to follow a proper procedure.

Will Teaching Become Automated with Technology?

Teaching and Technology: Automation

This article is an insightful view into a possible question in current times: will technology result in teaching being completely automated? Read on.

Learning without a teacher or to experience teaching without a teacher can kill creativity and innovative thought process of an individual.

The trust that machinery can mechanize education and substitute educators is inescapable. This credence can be found in present-day learning innovations, reform activities, and technology results.

Instead of teaching becoming automated, an individual can aim for a better future where inventions, imagine original ways to systematize education.

There are situations in which people have been replaced by machinery. Machines and robotic systems have replaced assembly-line workforces whose professions were grounded on homogenous and monotonous tasks such as welding and colouring in a factory.

On the other hand, the world has witnessed how web-based software has replaced airline and hotel reservations agents whose daily professions included finishing transactions with a small options and variables. But can we really think of teaching to be automated?

Well today a good number of people learn through web, there are several distance courses available, but for us all, foundation has been laid by teachers. What to study, how to study and methods of effecting learning has come to us from our physical educators.

Extremely compound and nuanced demands of coaching cannot be met by computers by executing tasks. Not sophisticated algorithms can play the role of a teacher. When technology is developing every day, people do have options of learning in different ways, at different proportions, but the progression in life comes from experiencing teaching in real life.

Technology and automated teaching will not replace teachers. But yes, technology has definitely changed the role of the teacher, the duties and responsibilities. In schoolrooms all over the nation, abundant entrance to technology has given teachers the chance to shift the mode and teaching styles. Education should be interacting, engaging, though provoking and motivation, automation of teaching cannot substitute formal teaching.

Talking about the possibilities, learning technology products often highlight efficiency. While there have been immense technological advancements between 1926 and 2014, the parallels are striking. The facts illustrate an ongoing enthrallment with efficiency. Individuals are trying to focus on saving time and money via software, grade, and accomplish. Research suggests that automation devices can be designed to facilitate learning activities and in that case, yes, there are chances that teaching can become automated. At times, students also prefer to have quick and comprehensive automated feedback.  They prefer instant notes than wait for a tired lecturer to scribble a few notes.

A formal teaching is always better than a completely automated teaching.

The Art of Learning and Other Tutor Advice

How to keep a student focused?

Keeping students engaged is one of the number one tasks a teacher has to perform on a daily basis. Engaged students stay focused, perform better and get higher grades.

So how do we keep students engaged and focused throughout the school day, even when in subjects they don’t excel at?

downloadWhile it is the student’s responsibility to be good pupils, teachers can do their part by taking a few extra steps to make lessons more interesting and the classroom experience more productive overall.

Here are a few of our favourite suggestions for capturing student attention and helping them focus in the classroom:

Be Spontaneous

The unexpected always draws attention, and a teacher doing spontaneous things – actions that show their humanity – is an important way to contact with students. It helps them understand the teacher better as a person, not just a role model or authority figure, and promotes a closer connection between them.

This also helps to engage the student in ways that gets them more interested in what the teacher is saying.

tutor-adviceChange the scenery

From field trips to simply teaching class outside, moving students into a new environment can be a critical way to increase focus and engagement. Even changing up classroom  décor once a week can keep them on their toes.

Create a “self-running “ classroom

According to hot chalk , a “self-running” classroom ensures that students keep themselves and each other engaged , allowing the teacher more time to teach , rather than “administrate”.

When teacher establish expectation through routine , engaging activities and procedures , students will know what they need to do and when , leaving  little time to become distracted.

tutor-adviceImplement time management

Teaching students better time management skills and having them put them to use will be beneficial for them as well, ensuring they learn the importance of getting their work done as efficiently as possible.

Make lessons interactive

One of the best ways to help students focus is to make the lessons they are taught more interactive. Turning ant assignment into a game, incorporating music, video and other activities that students can join in with, rather than simply sit and watch, will keep them focused.

Teach the importance of ownership

tutor-adviceTeaching students that they own their work and actions will encourage them not only to do better work, but make every action they perform one they can be proud of.

The ownership spirit applies to all parts of life and by incorporating it early teachers can help instil the idea of owning every part of a process, not just the outcome.

Use goal setting

Have students set goals for projects and activities and help them create a strategy for achieving those goals. Ownership is centered on destination thinking model for their lessons will help them apply it to other areas of life later on.

How to be a successful leaner?

The study of student motivation and engagement has uncovered a great deal about the particular habits and traits of those learners who are more likely to succeed. Listed here are the 8 of these habits which appear to be the best predictors.

  • Effort: If you don’t put the work in, you’re not going to get much out. Those learner who literally put in the hours beyond the classroom, reap higher rewards.
  • Engagement: Staying focused and on-task. Not getting distracted by things tutor-advicethat are going on around you off by disruptive peers.
  • Skill development: Just like playing the guitar or becoming an expert batsman, you need to develop your skill as a learner. This might include note taking, essay writing or honing your listening skills.
  • Participation; being involved in what’s going on in class. Ask and answer questions and help others who might be struggling. Being fully involved in what’s going on is an important part of the learning process.
  • Attendance: Turning up for lessons – there is a casual relationship between attendance and exam success.
  • Self-concept: how you see yourself as a learner. A positive self-concept is positively correlated with achievement. However, self-concept needs to be realistic and goals achievable –over estimation can be an equally damaging as under estimation.
  • tutor-advicePersistence: Not giving up, even when it gets difficult! We quite often use the terms resilience and buoyancy for this ability to bounce back after failure.
  • Enjoyment of learning: Not seeing learning as something you a forced to do, but rather something that can be enjoyable and personally fulfilling .Although some will use the term ‘enjoyment of school’ I would argue that school isn’t necessarily a prerequisite for success .I’m reminded of a year 12 people who once commented that she couldn’t wait to start the A2 work, “I know it sounds sad “, she said, I just live learning.

Why study Medicine and PMT Preparation

This article talks about the value of a medical career and how to go about PMT preparation.

Medicine has always been the noble, dreamy profession of the kind and the compassionate: The one that brings you fame and respect along with a comfortable living and security.

This is the dream most of us see when we choose to study to be a doctor.

download (1)
The road to this dream however goes through long hours of continuous work with lots of dedication, and if you decide to go for it prepare to be dedicated, single minded and resilient.

Pre medical test at this point in India is amongst the most competitive examinations, you need to study two years’ worth of physics, chemistry and biology with topics from botany and zoology as well as genetics. I would advise you to utilise the entire two years of time I standards 11th and 12th.

Figure out your strengths and weaknesses, if there are chapters or portions you are not sure of, work on them. Know the pattern and weightage, practice with model papers and previous question papers.

Also time management is the key to pmt like most other competitive exams, if you have an issue with nerves try solving question papers at home in an exam like manner. Practice till you are perfect and Know that there are no shortcuts to hard work.

Celebrate when you get selected for one of the disciplines of medicine but do not relax yet!

Once you enter medicine, you have to be driven and motivated as well as able to keep your levels of hard work. What you have heard already several times is its tough, cut throat competitive and extremely vast, what you need to bear in mind is it’s worth it.

From the beginning of medicine you get to explore the human body like you have not imagined before, every nerve, vein and artery every bone and muscle of the body.

The first year brings anatomy of the body the workings of physiology and the reactions of biochemistry.

The second year focuses on the non-clinical branches of medicine, like the working of drugs in pharmacology, the disease processes of pathology and even the investigations of forensic medicine.

The next two years will aquatint you with the workings of the clinics and the clinical branches of medicine, surgery and gynac amongst others. If you have not yet decided on your specialty, this will be the time.

Life in medicine branches are definitely tough academically, this cannot be sugar coated. However on every other level you will grow. Medicine as a career is full of opportunities.

downloadIn a country like India with a huge population and skewed doctor patient ratio, the existing doctors never ache for work. You can work in cities or you can serve rural populations.

You can work with the government, you can work privately or you can work individually. After you are well versed with your discipline of choice, the roads to success will be endless. All it takes is the right amount of perseverance and the zeal to succeed.

As a student of medicine for three years now, I would say confidently that no other profession can offer similar levels of success, fame and satisfaction a doctor gets in life.

Remember however that once you step in to be a doctor your biggest strength is your knowledge base and the second biggest may be your communication skills. That however is another story for another day.

Till then, work hard and work to hit the bull’s eye!

Exam Advice: Methods Adopted by Students to Study


With exams round the corner, I would like to present an article on the methods students use to study for their exams. Normally students have varying ways of studying for their exams.

Some can comprehend very well during classroom lectures and therefore they prefer studying in a group. Some students prefer studying well on their own without any disturbance.

Whichever method you choose you should see that it is proving to be beneficial for your studies. Studying in a group has an advantage that in case if you have a doubt in your studies, you can easily clear it out with your colleagues. This is not possible when studying alone.

Scheduling time for studies

When you are studying alone, there is a possibility that you may get bored and start delaying the studying of important lessons to a later date.

However, if you are studying in a group, you have someone breathing at your neck to stick to a schedule, which is predetermined.

Group studying also inculcates discipline and regularity in studying. It helps students plan and maintain a strict study schedule, which if abided by, will give them success in their exams.

Apart from this, doubts arising during studies can be sorted out immediately. In studying alone, you will not be able to enjoy the above-mentioned benefits.

Discover new ideas to study

Studying together in a group can help stimulate our grey cells and helps us to discover new concepts. Apart from this, we can also find new ways of solving a particular question.

Students can opt for any method convenient to them such that they can remember the answer during their exams. Group studying can also help us to find out what are our weak points and our strengths.

By solving doubts of other students, we can get confidence in a topic thus boosting our chances of clearing the exam. However, at the same time, it should be remembered that studying in a group should not disturb you from your path.

It should not distract you from your goal. This is only possible if you have colleagues who share the same study schedule, as yours. If this is not the case, your choosing to study in a group will not yield you good results.

Sharing notes

Students who write notes during class training can compare their notes and obtain the right guidance on what to study.

Exchanging notes will eliminate the possibility of errors occurring during studying.  For example, if you have not taken down notes on a particular topic, joining a study group will give you access to those notes.

Harsh Gupta, a class XII student from St. Joseph’s pre-university college in Bengaluru says that he has joined a chat group where he discusses the syllabus and solves his own and other students queries.

Some friends start solving math’s problem simultaneously and then discuss each step via chat. Even though the students are not present near each other, their virtual presence will enable them to solve their problems and doubts.

Previously this was not possible as the internet was not at large. However, with the internet becoming common everywhere, virtual study groups are not new .

Friendly assistance

AparnaGaitonde, teacher, IES Modern English School, Mumbai is of the view that group studying helps students iron out any deficiencies in knowledge in aparticular subject.

exam-notesStudents can solve each other’s problems in virtual sessions. Some students may be good at one subject while some others may be good at others.

When studying together, the weak students can learn from the intelligent ones and thus increase their chances of clearing the exams. Thus, studying in a group is always better as compared to studying in solitude.

However there may be students who study well when they are alone. These students can accumulate their doubts and get them solved when they meet their friends.

Boosting confidence

Students invariably face parental pressure to score well in their exams. This can take a toll on their confidence. If they study in a group, all their fears will evaporate as then they will know that their fears are unfounded, when they discuss with their friends and study mates.

Studying with their friends gives them the knowledge that the story is the same everywhere and that they are facing nothing out of the world. This will serve to improve their self-esteem and their confidence.

Thus there are tremendous benefits of group study or at least keeping in touch with your colleagues when you are studying.

revisePeer pressure

However, all said and done, if a particular student is not able to keep up with the pace of his study mates during a group study session, it will lead to him losing confidence.

In this case, it is clear that his intelligence is not the same as his other mates in his group. This leads him to experience peer pressure from his colleagues.

It may also affect his self-esteem. However, at such times, it is important that students do not lose their confidence and keep an open mind for any new experiences they may have.  Doing this will eradicate their self-doubt.

Going off track

Any group study session will only succeed if the team members all have the same goal of studying together and deriving the benefits of group studying. However, if any of them have other ideas, then the whole group will suffer because of one person.

Another possibility could be that the student may lose his place in the race. Then he may lose interest in studying as he has found that he cannot cope with the pace of the group. At times, he may also go off track never to return to studying.

This is the phenomenon of digressing from studies. Reasons for this could be pressure from peers to conform to the group pace of studying. However, when you find that you cannot keep up with them then at such times, it is always better to study alone and whenever you have doubts, you can contact one of your colleagues.


Thus, we have seen that group study is the best method to study for your exams; however, if you are an introvert or are a weak student, then it will be well for you to study alone and get in touch with your group only if you have any doubts.
