What does an inspirational presentation mean? How can we judge a presentation session as inspiring one or not? When referring to common dictionary, words "inspiration" (according to KBBI) defined as something that moves somebody's heart to create/act. Furthermore, inspiration can be interpreted together as an encouragement, especially in the presentation sessions.
Real / Personal Experience
An inspiring presentation session can be created through well-organized content and combined with real / personal experience. It cannot be denied that most of us like real stories, especially if it's told directly from the one who experience it. Inserting a real story that you think has its deep meaning / value can certainly build an inspiring atmosphere for the audience. Always draw meaningful conclusions for each experience you tell so that the audience can get what you are trying to convey. If there is no personal experience that suits your topic, then you are allowed to re-tell some famous persons' experiences.
For example: if you are presenting the importance of educational saving insurance, then you can tell about how an orphan you know who can finally go to school because the school has been provided savings funds by his parents long time ago.
Inspirational presentations are often related to emotions. It also related to some stories that started from a very bottom position into success position. Quite similar to personal experience, but this idea is more focused to how someone gain success or his/her tipping point "from zero to hero". Keep in mind, it must be a real story.
Presentations containing topics that beyond our logic, such as unbelievable facts or the latest biological sciences, will be very attractive for the audience. You can easily inspire the audience because they can't predict what you are going to say since the content is quite rare/unique.
Last but not least, try to discover your personality and seek the most unique of yourself. It might be a good idea to frame your own version of inspiration topic since the most attractive topic sometimes come from what inside the presenter. Good luck!
