)-- Have you ever wondered how to create an effective debate within a presentation? Do you want to incite a discussion amongst your audience members but aren't sure how? Success Mentors International has just released an article on the website Article Snatch that contains a solid and effective format for debate-style presentations that is sure to boost your ability in this advanced presentation skill.
"To understand two points of view clearly, sometimes we must place them in opposition with each other," author Niki Rebin says. "That is exactly what the debate-style speech format attempts to do. By creating a dialogue between two opposing sides, you can help your audience understand both more clearly."
This presentation format requires 4 main steps, with one optional step. You must use the introduction of the speech to set the atmosphere and elaborate on the issue at hand before the debate begins. Then let the opposing sides present their case, and possibly talk about a related issue yourself. Finally, open the floor for debate and moderate the discussion that takes place.
To ensure that your debate-style presentation is effective for both the presenters and the audience, Rebin says, "use your power to ensure that everyone in the room has a chance to speak up, and don't let your own opinions influence the discourse too heavily."
The debate format is an advanced presentation skill that is certain to incite a discussion amongst your audience members and facilitate the exchange of ideas. "If you want to encourage the exchange of ideas or convince a group to co-operate," Rebin says, "then a debate-style presentation might be your best option."
