Bush Fower Essences to Help Public Presentation

Australian Bush Flower Essences. Just a drop under the tongue, or a thin cover of cream on your skin and you’re up for it! The supportive use of natural flower essences is a great one for creatives in the limelight.

Out and about, protected as you go about your creative endeavours, essential flower essences ‘clear the waters’ and ease the path. Creatives do powerful work in some very mucky places. Don’t go out alone without some extra, natural reinforcement of the body and soul!

There is a beautiful range of flower essences from the Australian bush that I love. There is an essence to help with every fragility and to draw out every type of strength required to live a balanced, calm life and remain centred when in the hotspot of giving a public presentation of any sort.

I recommend Australian Bush Flower Essences way above the more accepted self-medication methods of drugs and alcohol. D and A are fast relieving but the side effects both short and longterm are really painful. There isn’t a creative person alive who doesn’t have a tale of woe of a friend lost to bad behaviour through drugs and alcohol.

The beauty is that, at the very least, Australian Bush Flower Essences can do no harm. Try one for three days. You’ll feel the effects kick in very gently and begin noticing an easing of the symptoms that hold you back from joyful, easeful creativity.

Before going to a public presentation of any sort try placing a few drops of Australian Bush Essence of your choice (depending on what your individual issues are) under your tongue. They’ll help diminish the negative aspect and draw out the positive aspect of your energy.

Just as the build up to a public presentation is important so too is the wind-down. After a big event you might like to try a warm foot bath with the juice of two lemons in it to draw excess energy/over stimulation down away from your head. That way you can unwind, re-center and sleep easily after being so pumped by the adrenal ‘fight or flight’ rush that performance requires.

It’s worth the effort to take care of your own eco-system. Contrary to popular myth, the more solid you are the more creative. Let those whose job it is to destroy themselves in full public view play out their karmic debt. That’s not your job. Your job is to be well and nourish the world with beautiful material that heals.

Colleague Moving Onto Pastures New? Then Give Them A Leaving Present to Remember

Whip rounds. Collections. Whatever you want to call them, they’re part and parcel of today’s working life – whether they’re for birthdays, engagements, weddings, babies or leaving presents. The latter, in particular, is a rather tricky customer, especially if you want to give them something a bit more exciting than a high-street voucher. That said, one possibility is a personalised leaving present.

Take wine, for example. Everyone loves a nice glass of the claret on a Friday night, and never more so than when they’ve just said farewell to an old job. So don’t settle for nipping down to Tesco if buying your departing colleague a nice bottle of wine springs to mind. Instead, get online and get them a personalised bottle of wine or Champagne. You’ll find a choice of label styles, all of which can be customised to include a name and message. And the chance to engrave some crystal glasses would finish things off with a bit of pizzazz.

If you’re buying leaving gifts for a girl, another obvious option would be to treat her to a pampering session. You’ve got spa days, day stays at health clubs, and all sorts of massages and makeovers. A lot of them are available for two as well, so it’ll give her the opportunity of taking her chap, mum or a mate along for company. And because so many of the experiences are available across the country, getting from A to B shouldn’t be an issue.

As for the boys, you’re well set if they’re a footie fan – personalised leaving presents based around the beautiful game are two a penny. So here are a few ideas. Personalised programme covers feature his side’s matchday programme that can be customised to include his name. The clubs’ magazine covers follow exactly the same principle. A football legends calendar is made up of photos of his team that have had his name cunningly integrated into the image. And for the real ‘fan boys’ there are also the football club books. These cover his team’s history through tabloid-sized reprints of reports and articles, typically going back some 100 years and winding up at the end of last season.

Do You Make These 5 Mistakes During a Sales Presentation Too?

We’ve all seen it. The presentation from hell, and often part of the reason is that they’ve made all 5 mistakes that I’ll cover in this article. And these mistakes don’t just cover those who make presentations on big platforms, you can see them in countless sales presentations.

So without further ado, lets look at the 5 mistakes and what you can do about them:

Winging The Talk Is Mistake #1 Any rehearsal that is under rehearsed, or worse not rehearsed at all, comes across as slow and a little awkward because the presenter is making it up as they go along and searching for the right word or an appropriate analogy or story to illustrate a point they’re making.

The solution is simply to rehearse. How much to rehearse depends on how important the presentation. The more important the more rehearsal is needed.

Starting Wrongly Is Mistake #2 By wrongly I mean with something that has no interest at all with your audience. For example I’ve sat through long, featureless sales presentations where everything that comes out of the salesman’s mouth is about their company, their product, their importance.

After all, unless you are going to buy the product why do you need to know about the company’s solid financial basis over the last 10 years, do you actually care that they have 100, 2000 or 5 employees? Are you even interested in how the founder started it and a brief (but too long) potted history of it so far? The answer of course is no!

The solution, cut out everything that the audience isn’t interested in. Move the company information to the back of the presentation and only present it if asked to do so.

Looking Away From The Audience Is Mistake #3 I’ve given up counting the times presenters look away from the audience, either at their notes, or more usually at the projector screen. Breaking eye contact with the audience loses a little bit of rapport each time it happens. As rapport evaporates an audience becomes restless, they begin to discuss the presentation amongst themselves and without the presenter to notice and react the whole energy of the presentation disappears and any likelihood of getting the point across goes too. Lack of confidence from lack of rehearsal can be one cause for this mistake.

The solution is to make sure you rehearse and remember to always look at the people in your audience, after all you’re trying to persuade them to your viewpoint.

Reading Something The Audience Can Read Themselves Is Mistake #4 As the presenter drones through the text on the screen they’re losing rapport and losing the fast readers in the audience who have finished reading everything on the screen and are now talking to their neighbour or looking around the room, or doodling.

Whatever, you’re losing the audience. Nobody I know likes being read to once they’ve left home. Reading text from a screen is simply a waste of both yours and your audiences time.

The solution to this is to make your presentations less text heavy and to add value to each slide that you talk about. Avoid using the words on the screen, summarise the slide, your position in the presentation, give a story or analogy.

Letting The Audience Have Material Before Your Presentation Is Mistake #5 When you’re given a handout what do you do? Open it! So your audience will do the same. When that happens you’ve lost them. Rather than paying full attention to the pearls that fall from your lips they’ll be leafing through trying to find the points you’re making in your presentation and missing other points while they do.

The simple solution is don’t hand out any material unless it’s simply to hand around the audience and which will be back in your hands before the point you’re making is finished.
