A good seminar often has targeted points that are required to be conveyed to the audience. These points are also the ones that form the core of your seminar. Without having these targeted points, your seminar will most slightly become a failure. This is because without having any targeted points in your seminar, you will not be able to get your information across to the audience. So here’s a quick guide on how you can effectively cover your target points in a seminar.
Firstly, your points should derive from the topic itself. From the topic, decide on what you would like to touch on before forming your main points. The number of main points in your seminar should range from five to ten, depending on the amount of time that you have and also, the number of sub points. For example, if the topic of your seminar is “musical instruments”, your main points could be on how they are classified. In other words, the five main points would be strings, woodwinds, percussion, keyboards and brass.
After coming up with the main points to be used in your seminar, you would need to come up with sub points for each of the main points. The main points on its own isn’t sufficient enough to produce a fulfilling seminar. Sub points are used to support and provide more details. Referring to the example mentioned above, the sub points could be the musical instruments that fall under each of the five categories. For example, in strings, instruments such as violin, guitar, harp and bass will fall under it.
Thirdly, when you decide on the targeted points to talk about, you will need to consider the depth and width to focus on. This means that you will need to know if you are going to zoom in on specifics or have a broader range. In the above example, regarding string instruments, you could be more specific on each instrument. For guitar, you can go deeper into acoustic, classical and electric. Alternatively, you could decide to mention a wider range of instruments and not go further into each of them.
The points in your seminar are basically the skeleton or structure of your seminar. As we all know, seminars have an introduction, a body and a conclusion. Your target points form the entire body of your seminar. The body of your seminar is what matters most to your audience. That’s what they are there to listen to and majority will expect to take something out of it. If you are unable to give a fruitful seminar, you will not receive positive feedback from your audience. Therefore, knowing and covering your targeted points in a seminar is crucial.
