10 Tips for Becoming a Hypnotically Dynamic Presenter

At the heart of any impactful presentation are the timeless principles of ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos appeals to the speaker's credibility, making the audience trust them based on their expertise or character. Pathos taps into the emotions, aiming to stir feelings that can motivate or resonate deeply. Lastly, logos relies on logic and reason, presenting arguments that make sense and are backed by evidence. Together, these pillars form the foundation of persuasive communication, enabling presenters to craft messages that are not only heard but felt and remembered.

Drawing from years of hypnotizing audiences as a stage hypnotist and keynote speaker, Mike Mandel has distilled his seasoned expertise into the top 10 tips for becoming a hypnotically dynamic presenter. These insights come from a career spent in the spotlight, captivating listeners with skill, wit, and psychological acuity. Here's your roadmap, crafted by a seasoned pro, to unlock the art of unforgettable presentations:

1. Be Dynamic

Being dynamic in a presentation means bringing energy and enthusiasm to your delivery from the very beginning. It involves moving with purpose and using your voice and gestures to bring high energy into the presentation. Being dynamic keeps the audience engaged, as monotony leads to disinterest. Furthermore, a dynamic speaker is congruent, which means their words match their vocal tone and body language, sending one consistent message to the audience the entire time.

2. Know Your Stuff

Deep knowledge of your subject matter is crucial for confidence and authority in your presentation. It facilitates a more natural presentation style. You're not just reciting facts; you're sharing insights and making complex information accessible. This expertise fosters trust and credibility with your audience, making your message more persuasive.

This depth of knowledge also allows you to answer questions with ease and dive deeper into topics as interest arises. Knowing your stuff also means you can veer off script if necessary, providing additional value to your audience through anecdotes or case studies that support your points.

One of the best ways to acquire deep knowledge about a subject is to have an attitude of always wanting to learn more. Don’t ever think you’ve learned everything there is to know about a certain topic. Always remind yourself that you are constantly learning and improving.

3. Be Actively Involved

Remember you’re in a psychodynamic loop with the entire audience. To be actively involved, constantly calibrate your audience’s response and adjust your presentation accordingly. Change your pace and move around the stage, engage people and gesture to them, then observe how the audience responds. Constantly calibrating your audience means your presentation will be constantly entertaining.

Involving the audience also provides valuable feedback. Techniques like asking questions and encouraging audience participation help you gauge understanding, adjust pacing, and tailor your content to the audience's reactions. This dynamic interaction enriches the presentation for both the speaker and the audience.

Calibration is also an essential skill for professional hypnotists. At the Mike Mandel Hypnosis Academy (MMHA) we teach our students that hypnosis isn’t something you do to someone, but a psychodynamic loop of communication between the hypnotist and the subject. To do good work as a hypnotist, one must always be calibrating and gauging their subject’s responses.

4. Avoid Repetitive Gestures

Repetitive gestures can become a distraction, because they come across as boring and irritating. That’s because repeating the same gesture numerous times makes the presentation itself feel repetitive and boring. Being conscious of your body language and working to diversify your gestures can prevent your audience from focusing on the wrong thing. Effective speakers use gestures that complement their verbal messages, enhancing understanding rather than detracting from it. Thoughtful use of body language can significantly enhance the impact of your presentation.

5. Utilize Real Stories and Full Names

If the audience remembers just one thing from a presentation, it’s the stories. Incorporating personal stories that grab the audience’s attention, especially if they evoke a strong emotion, whatever it is (laughter, sadness, surprise, etc). Use authentic stories because you’ll tell them congruently, which will make them more powerful. As Milton Erickson once said, the best stories are the stories from our own lives.

Using full names of people adds authenticity and relatability to your story. For instance, referring to a person as Brian McDowell, instead of just Brian, can make the narrative appear more authentic. Stories create a narrative that people can connect with, making abstract concepts tangible and memorable. When you share a personal experience, especially with specific details like full names, you build a bridge to your audience, inviting them into the story.

This technique not only makes your presentation more engaging but also more persuasive. People are naturally drawn to stories and are more likely to remember and be influenced by information presented in narrative form. Real stories and names make your content stick.

6. Engage Emotions

Good hypnotists know that when we engage emotions, human beings automatically become more open to suggestion and direction. Whatever the emotion is. By connecting with your audience on an emotional level, you make your message more compelling and memorable. Sharing personal stories using vivid imagery will engage emotions very quickly. You can also engage emotions using various different hypnotic language patterns.

The right kind of emotional engagement also helps to build rapport with your audience, making them more receptive to your message. When people feel a connection to the speaker, they're more likely to trust and be influenced by them.

7. Master the Art of Pausing

Strategic use of pauses in your presentation can enhance its effectiveness. Pauses allow the audience time to absorb and reflect on what you've said, highlighting key points. They also create a rhythm in your delivery that can help maintain audience engagement. Moreover, pausing before or after an important point can add emphasis, making your message more impactful.

Practicing your timing with pauses can improve your delivery significantly. It's not just about stopping; it's about using silence as a tool to underscore your message, giving it the weight and consideration it deserves.

8. Credit Your Sources

Crediting your sources is crucial for maintaining credibility and integrity in your presentation. It shows that you've conducted thorough research and are presenting well-founded information. Acknowledging the work of others not only demonstrates respect for intellectual property but also strengthens your arguments by basing them on reputable sources.

This practice also enhances your audience's trust in your message. When they see that your information is backed by credible sources, they're more likely to believe and support your arguments.

9. Eliminate Word Whiskers

Filler words or "word whiskers'' are very detrimental to your charisma potential. Making noises to fill in silence gaps in your speech, such as “ah…,” “um….,” “and ah…,” can detract from the clarity and professionalism of your presentation. Filler words and expressions like “so” and “you know” , when said repetitively, are also considered word whiskers.

Reducing filler words improves the flow of your presentation and makes your message clearer. It also enhances your credibility, as concise, confident delivery is more persuasive than one cluttered with unnecessary fillers.

Eliminating these verbal crutches requires awareness and practice. One effective method is to simply practice speaking more slowly. You can also use creative pause when you feel the urge to use a filler word, giving yourself a moment to think while practicing another awesome presentation technique. Recording yourself speaking can provide valuable feedback.

10. Maintain Eye Contact

Maintaining eye contact is key to establishing a connection with your audience and holding their attention. It conveys confidence and sincerity, making your presentation more engaging and persuasive. Distributing eye contact throughout the audience, rather than focusing on a single point or reading from notes, makes each member feel included and valued.

Eye contact also allows you to gauge audience reaction and adjust your presentation accordingly. It's a two-way channel of communication that enriches the interactive experience of your presentation, making it more effective and memorable.
