How to Transcend Your Presentation Delivery





Speaking in front of a group of people can be pretty nerve-racking. It is easy to get caught in the moment and start to stutter or forget your lines. The last thing you want is to stand in front of a group of people and seem like you don't know what you're saying. Here are some tips to help you dominate the presentation that you're nervous about.

An important step to having great delivery on your presentation is a great start. You have to come out of the gates swinging. The first minute of your presentation is key since it determines whether or not your audience is going to be emotionally invested in your presentation.

Another key to your delivery is being confident. You must be confident in what you're presenting to the audience. Along with showing your confidence, you must show your passion for the message that you are conveying. You will appeal to a much wider audience if you show that you are passionate about what you're talking about.





Making good eye contact with your audience is another important factor to think about when presenting. Making eye contact can make your audience feel more involved and invested into your presentation. Eye contact can change your presentation from feeling like a lecture to a conversation.

The Best Fonts For You

Fonts are important when writing. Whether it comes to essays or presentations, you need to find the right fonts to best convey your message. 



One of the first decisions to be made when selecting your font is serif or sans serif? This decision should be based on several key points regarding the project at hand. Once made, your search for the perfect font will be narrowed down considerably.


Serif


Serif fonts are typically used for printed writings. The finishing stroke to the letters make it easier for our brains to distinguish the letters when reading on printed work. Consider using a serif font when writing an essay, book, novel, or anything that you know is going to get printed. Some popular serif fonts are Times New Roman, Bodoni, Garamond, Rockwell, and Bembo.


Sans Seirf



Sans serif fonts are typically used for online work. Consider using sans serif fonts when writing online articles, blogs, posts, or anything that is going to be read by others through a device. Some popular sans serif fonts are Arial, Calibri, Helvetica, and Verdana.


Something else you should consider when choosing your font is what color you want. Different colors create different themes to the message that you are trying to convey. Click here to view our guide to which color you should use with your font.

Don't Make The Mistake Of Ordering The Wrong Size Folders


Folder Size does matter. When choosing a folder for your next event, meeting, conference or mailing make sure that you are choosing the correct size folder to best suit your specific needs.

Here is a list of the 7 most common folder sizes used in todays market

Tallest to Smallest

  1. 9x14.5 Presentation folder is best know as the "Legal Folder". You see this folder commonly used by Law Firms, Real Estate Companies and Finance Companies. Many of the documents used by these types of organizations are printed on larger sheets of paper such as a legal sheet which is 8.5" x 14" and would stick out of the top of a Standard 9"x12" Presentation Folder.
  2. 9x12 Presentation folder or as many call it "Pocket Folder" is truly the workhorse of all folders. The 9"x12" presentation folder is designed to be used with 8.5"x11" sheets of paper and along with its larger cousin the Legal Folder can hold up to 20 sheets of 20# bond paper in each pocket. I feel pretty confident that if you are reading this you most likely use 8.5"x11" sheets of paper as your primary sheet size.

    You often see the 9"x12" Presentation folder used by schools, universities, accountants, HR departments, dental offices, doctors offices and  hospitals. You will also find them used for Trade Shows and in Business Presentations. The list of uses for this size folder go on and on.

  3. 6x9 We like to call this the "Church Folder" as it is quite often used by Churches as a Welcome folder stuffed full of information for their potentially new parishioners. The best thing about these 6x9 folders is that they are small, perfect for holding a 4.25x5.5" insert (half of a  8.5x11" sheet).
  4. 4x9 Commonly used to hold a standard trifold measuring 3.7x8.5" works much like the 6x9 folder, small and easily portable.

*Key Card/ Gift Card Holders:

When it comes to key card holders you really have to pay close attention to how much information you are putting onto the holder itself. Their is very limited space, so if you have a lot of information then you may want to choose the larger of the three sizes.

    5.  3.75x6.5
    6.  3.25x5.5
    7.  2.75x4.5

*All Folders and Key Card sizes are listed from the largest size folder to the smallest size folder.
