Speaker A:

Welcome to Presentation Skills Q and A. I am Martin Lindescope.

Speaker A:

Hi, Karina.

Speaker B:

Hi Martin.

Speaker B:

How are you today?

Speaker A:

I'm okay.

Speaker A:

And how are you?

Speaker B:

I'm fine, fine.

Speaker B:

It's autumn.

Speaker B:

Yes, the leaves are a little bit yellow.

Speaker B:

I think it's very nice in the autumn.

Speaker A:

That's good.

Speaker A:

And now maybe hopefully not the flu season,

Speaker A:

but I'm having a man cold and at the same time I have a new microphone here also.

Speaker A:

So it's lots of things to think about, talking about focus, for example.

Speaker B:

Yes, we talked about focus last time, Martin.

Speaker B:

Do you have any thoughts about that?

Speaker A:

Yes, it's something to think about and that you could have it, as I said, more

Speaker A:

philosophical meaning of it, but also as you gave practical pieces of advice, then focus on

Speaker A:

a task or a presentation.

Speaker A:

So I thought that was valuable and chew it and

Speaker A:

think about it and come back to it.

Speaker B:

We talked about how important it is with good sleep and the good food and exercise

Speaker B:

and these parts can really help you to focus on your task and what you want you to say.

Speaker B:

And you also feel comfortable when you have slept well and eating good food.

Speaker B:

But that reminded me that we also have things that are very easy to do to also help us to

Speaker B:

focus in a better way.

Speaker B:

And that's your voice and your body and the

Speaker B:

communication with your body.

Speaker B:

And one of the things is that regarding the

Speaker B:

voice then is to articulate well.

Speaker B:

And in your situation when you have a man

Speaker B:

code, it's more important because then it helps your voice when you articulate well.

Speaker B:

If you have loose lips, the sound of your voice also gets loose and a little bit blurry

Speaker B:

if you can say it in that way.

Speaker B:

So if you articulate well, you both feel and

Speaker B:

get more confident and you save your voice.

Speaker A:

Because maybe it could be the challenge as I'm now feeling a bit sore and

Speaker A:

irritated.

Speaker A:

And then you try to not get too loose but then

Speaker A:

you have it building up.

Speaker A:

So do you have any tips and suggestion on

Speaker A:

that?

Speaker B:

Just think about how much you use your lips when you are talking that you in you

Speaker B:

should really be in front.

Speaker B:

It should be almost in front of your face.

Speaker B:

It sounds a little peculiar, but it helps you really.

Speaker A:

Okay.

Speaker B:

And if you say a word like long, long, you use your tongue.

Speaker B:

Your tongue is in the upper front and o long and n. Then you use your tongue and then you

Speaker B:

speak up here in the mouth and don't use and then you're not sitting used to say sitting

Speaker B:

the words in your throat when it's sore.

Speaker B:

So it helps you good.

Speaker B:

And then you can take your help from your body as well.

Speaker B:

So it's important that you stretch up your body in its full length and look in the mirror

Speaker B:

and see how you walk through life raise your head and your eyes and pull back your

Speaker B:

shoulders.

Speaker B:

Then you will automatically get focused.

Speaker B:

And you get a focused mindset when you do that.

Speaker B:

And I think now focus is a huge topic, why our listeners, they can write to us and ask

Speaker B:

questions, I think.

Speaker A:

Yes.

Speaker B:

And the email address is info at pik.

Speaker B:

New at pip new.

Speaker B:

So hit us with questions.

Speaker A:

Great.

Speaker B:

Yeah.

Speaker A:

So now I got thinking about my new setup here regarding posture and equipment and

Speaker A:

other things like that, so that's things that you could improve over time.

Speaker A:

But it was great to test a new microphone and also to do it even if it's not optimal with

Speaker A:

your sound voice, throat, whatever.

Speaker A:

But I have, as always some hot tea here ready

Speaker A:

if something could happen.

Speaker B:

Really nice.

Speaker B:

Well, Martin, take your tea and relax.

Speaker B:

And be careful about your voice.

Speaker A:

Thanks.

Speaker B:

And we will continue.

Speaker A:

Yes, we will.

Speaker A:

So talk soon again.

Speaker B:

Yes, we do.

Speaker A:

Cheers.

Speaker B:

Cheers.
