Some simple things that may help you improve your Presentations skill
Practicing, refining, and improving your presentation skills will not only make you more confident, but you will advance to success in your job more quickly. Great presentation skills is not only benefit your professional life but also essential life skills that you should use in a variety of situations. Here are some small tips that may help you to enhance your presentation:
Be well prepared before your presentation
Confidence and preparation make it easier to take the lead and drive the presentation as planned.
1. Use less text and more visuals in your presentation
Know what are key messages that we are going to share to the audiences and make it as condensate as possible.
Almost all of us have been with experience before: sitting in the meeting room and trying our best to stay interested and engaged with the presentation of someone. The presentation lacks of images , color, and all sense of creativity while containing a long-form paragraphs and an over-abundance of text. These types of presentations are horrible for two reasons:
- The first reason being that the minute you show the presentation on the screen, the listener will direct their attention away from you to begin reading and completely tune you out.
- The second reason is if your presentation skills are not strong, not only will your presentation be dull to listen to, but it will be boring to look at as well. You will quickly find out how easy it is to lose most of the attention when you create a lackluster presentation.
2. Keep the presentation as short as possible
Every single person’s time is valuable -especially at work, so do not waste the meeting time. Try to keep your presentation going as planned. Ensure that you are only sharing the most important information. All of the extra fluff will bore the listener and you will lose their attention very quickly.
It is a great idea to wrap up your meeting with key takeaways and action items. Doing so will ensure that no matter how quickly your meeting ends, your team understands their next steps. You can send out a quick, summarizing slide deck or an easy to read one-pager for their reference later.
3. Practices speaking in front of people
Practice always makes you become better.
It is important to remember that your stress is most likely caused by your unfamiliarity with the scenario, not by a lack of preparation. The more comfortable you are with taking the stage and having everyone’s attention on you, the less nervous you will get.
The best way to implement this practice is by starting from a small thing. Prepare a presentation for your friends, family, or closest teammate.
When you practice in front of others more regularly, you will feel more comfortable with the focus, allowing you to properly transmit your thoughts the next time it is your turn to speak in the meeting room.
Be connected to your audience always
1. Keep your eye contact with the listener
This is an obvious tip that will help you go a long way with the listener.
Remember that losing eye contact and looking everywhere but at the people that you are presenting to is a very common nervous behavior. Pay attention and make sure you have your eyes on at least one person.
2. Do not forget your body language
Smiling, hand gestures, eye contact, and a powerful stance all exude confidence.
If you don’t have strong body language and are showing physical signs of nervousness (ex. tapping, shaking, darting eyes, and many more), the listener will have a hard time focusing on what you’re presenting, the fact that you’re nervous and probably don’t know what you’re talking about as much as you say you do.
No matter how nervous you are, take a deep breath and take it easy.
3. Welcome questions and comments during your presentation
Be flexible throughout your presentation. Answer questions and respond to any comments from the participant. But the most important thing is to try to control and remind them to focus on the question that is related to your presentation only.
Also, take some time out at the start or your presentation to ask the listener some icebreaker questions and slowly transition into the more important stuff.
Taking this minute to talk through anything that the listener is thinking of is a good thing because it means they are engaged with you and really pay attention to your words. Doing so will also relax the format of your presentation, allowing you to feel more relaxed and confident as well.
Most people do not naturally have excellent presentation skills. That is something is learnt and practiced through time. As with most things in life, you must constantly try to improve your skills to get better and better.
I do hope that some of my sharing that I have experienced during my work will help you to improve your presentation skills. By doing so, you will find that presenting at your key meetings becomes easier and more exciting.
Training Trip in Japan #4 - Japan In My Eyes
(*The blog is based on the personal opinion and experience of one of the members participating in the training trip in Japan)
In this article, I would like to share my thoughts about Japan. In early 2023, I had the opportunity to visit Tokyo - Japan which was organized by my company on the occasion of IVC's 20th anniversary of establishment . This was the first time I came to the Land of Cherry Blossoms, so there were a lot of surprises, and I had a chance to experience some "culture shocks" there.
Tokyo's So Darn Clean
I have heard many people talk about cleanliness in Japan, but I was still very surprised when I saw it with my own eyes. Not only the streets but also the rivers are also so clean - no trash, no plastic bags, no dust, no bad smell… It is so clean that I think you don't need to worry about getting your clothes dirty while sitting on the street ^^. It's hard to find garbage on the streets, even though there were no garbage cans on the street, because the Japanese took their trash home. This is a habit, a rule, and also the tradition of the Japanese people.
Vending Machines Everywhere and Have Everything
In Tokyo, there are many vending machines and it is so easy to find them. You could buy anything there, from sushi to ramen or sandwiches, from hot coffee to cool water… The tour guide said that there are over 4 million vending machines around Japan, and there is approximately one vending machine per 100 meters. Normally, I could see two or three vending machines placed side by side. It's very simple to use them. I tried to buy a hot coffee, and it was not difficult to pay by coins. Besides paying in cash, vending machines also allow payment with Pay Pay, LINE Pay, Rakuten Pay, or a credit card. It's really convenient.

Tokyo - So Crowded City

In Tokyo, the stations or intersections are very crowded. Most people walk, and they walk very fast. Sometimes, there are a few cyclists. Shibuya crossing is the biggest and busiest crossing in Tokyo, where sometimes 3000 or more people cross the intersection at once. You could easily find long queues of people waiting in front of the stores to buy something. According to Wikipedia, with 37.19 million people, Tokyo is the most populous city in the world today.
Above are the three points that impressed me the most when coming to Tokyo. Besides, public transportation systems, high-tech washlets, and many other things are special points in Japan. If you have a chance, come to Tokyo once, there are many surprises waiting for you there. Or you can consider to apply for IVC employee to have the opportunity visiting Japan in the future.
E-club #3 - Events And Trends
Learning English is the journey of life, your English knowledge will be collected through every learning and practicing activity every day!
Various energetic and enjoyable discussions are still going on in the IVC’s E-club. Let’s have a sit and review three topics held in March.
The English Club immediately seized an event not to be missed within the month - 8th March, to open the topic "Why do we need International Women’s Day?". With a not really unfamiliar topic, attendees freely promoted their thoughts and gave very interesting answers, as well as some highly surprising ideas. There was no exact answer to that big question, anyway, the comments made that day also received the agreement of all those who attended. Females nowadays have the opportunity to be involved in many fields due to they have strived for equal rights in the past. In an all-male working environment like IT, ladies are a breath of fresh air in the office. That topic was closed by the wishes on the occasion of International Women’s Day for the girls who participated in this activity.
For new and rarely encountered topics, participants frequently find more resources on the internet by phone. And have you noticed that cell phones have become an inseparable part of many people’s lives today? So, have you ever wondered what would happen if your phone suddenly vanished from your life? “Life without phone” shows joiners a view of how life will be altered today if they do not have a phone. We considered the role of phones in life, work, study, entertainment, etc. for each individual. According to a survey of the participants, the phone was a convenient tool for them, but they not reliant on it. How long do you think you can live without your phone? What is your limit? Someone said one day, someone said ten years, much or little, we believed that life would have changed without the phone and we could adapt to it, like the way phones appeared for the first time.
There is one other thing that also changes and updates constantly, like the phone, and that is Social Media. In recent years, Social Media has been constantly innovating and developing and has become the most influential and effective means of communication. For instance, Social Networks (one branch of Social Media) are rapidly growing and spreading, especially during the pandemic. Everything in general and Social Media in particular has two sides, but the purpose and the way we use it can determine whether it is good or bad and how it affects our lives. "Social Media" was also the topic that closed E-club's March.
IVC's English-speaking series is still in the consolidation and development phases. Thank you all IVC staffs very much for your consistent participation, this is the motivation for the E-club to keep being creative and delivering interesting activities continuously.
Stay tuned for our next blog posts!
Training Trip in Japan #3 – The Ramen Experience
(*The blog is based on the personal opinion and experience of one of the members participating in the training trip in Japan)
Japanese cuisine was so popular in Vietnam. Foods that came to mind when I thought of Japanese foods could be Ramen, Sushi, Takoyaki... Ramen was known as a typical Japanese dish and had been appearing in many Japanese movies, anime. So I decided to go for Ramen as soon as I got the chance to participate in the training trip to Tokyo, Japan.
At 2nd night in Japan, after finishing the training session and party with the ISB Corporation, even though I was a bit full from the party, I immediately went to a Ramen restaurant called "Mendokoro Hanada" which was near the station Ikebukuro.
I arrived at the restaurant about 09:00 PM. There were five people in the queue at that time. The staff supported me to buy a meal ticket from the vending machine at the entrance before queuing. On the machine, there was full information about types of Ramen, toppings, drinks and its prices. After I inserted money and pressed button, a meal ticket was printed. As my observation, the machine just accepted: 1000 yen notes, 2000 yen notes, 10 yen coins, 50 yen coins, 100 yen coins and 500 yen coins. After getting a meal ticket, I returned to my original place in the line. After that, the other staff checked my ticket and asked me whether I wanted to add more vegetables and extra garlic to my order. I didn’t want to add anything more, so I responded: “普通のラーメンでお願いします”.
After waiting about 15 minutes, I had a seat. When I got into the restaurant, I felt very familiar like what I saw in the Japanese movies. The space was quite small, but very close. The counter was very neat and tidy. Maybe because of the limited space, it was only counter seats. But I was able to watch the chefs cook the food which was ordered in front of me.
Just wait about 5 minutes more, my bowl of ramen - Miso ramen was served. It was a large bowl filled with ramen, pork, veggies, eggs. I really wanted to try Japanese Medium-boiled egg, so I ordered the ramen with eggs. The smell of warm ramen spread, it was so good and very suited to the nighttime cold in Tokyo. Furthermore, Water, Garlic and chili powder,... were available on the counter. Because I wanted to try the original flavor of the dish, I added nothing in my bowl of ramen. The soup was thick and quite salty, but it tasted so good. The noodles were thick and chewy. The chunks of pork were very big and thick, but soft. Medium-boiled egg was very greasy. Stir -fried vegetables were also very delicious. When I finished that bowl of ramen, I thought I couldn't eat anything else. I stood up, left the restaurant and finished the 2nd night in Japan.
I had a wonderful ramen experience at Mendokoro Hanada. It's a great memory for me. The ramen was delicious, and the staffs were also very friendly. I hoped I would have the opportunity to return to Japan and eat ramen again with someone.
