Well-trained speakers are the most important component of a presentation!
Often in the hectic preparation of a large event, you can let the speaker training get out of hand. It would seem that they themselves are interested in performing well. Let them prepare themselves, right? But presenters are almost always busy people. In addition to performing, they have a number of work tasks, and it is not always possible to pay enough attention to rehearsals. And even during rehearsals, it is difficult to assess yourself from the outside and see the moments that need improvement.
But if you organize at least 3-5 rehearsals before the performance, the speech will turn out to be much more interesting for the audience, and the speaker will be more confident.
For example, when we partner with TEDxKyiv conference
, the speaker preparation team starts rehearsing with the speakers a few months before the event. Much attention is paid to ensuring that in 18 minutes on stage, the speaker can convey his unique idea to the audience.
You also need to organize the process of preparing speakers. Well, this is if you want a really cool event :)
