Do you want to perfect your presentations or get access to tools that will make it easier and faster? Well, fret no more because there’s a game-changing solution on the horizon: artificial intelligence (AI) tools. In this blog post, we’ll explore how AI tools can revolutionize your presentation game from start to finish.
In the fast-paced world of public speaking, staying ahead means embracing innovation. Discover how AI tools can be your secret weapon in creating and delivering a speech and interacting with your audience to leave a lasting impact.
Here, you can find a few tricks and tips on using AI to prepare a presentation’s draft, slides, and visuals, conduct it, and engage the audience.
1. Drafting a draft of your presentation: AI tools for content creation. ChatGPT for preparing a presentation
If you are searching for AI tools, that will help you to create the content of the presentation, explore this:
- OpenAI’s GPT-3, or pro version 4.0
- Emotion API
These tools can help you transform your ideas into compelling narratives. However, remember that AI tools don’t usually have access to up-to-date information and make mistakes. AI can elevate your content, but for now, it can’t replace your sense of humor, linguistic skills, and creative ideas.
You could use ChatGPT, Clearscope, or Frase to research for you- finding quotes and relevant data, creating an outline, finding examples, and correcting typos. Use it smartly. Many people work with AI tools in everyday work, and it’s still easy to detect if someone uses an AI tool to generate text. Ultimately, you don’t want to sound like a robot while presenting. Your authenticity and credibility is a key.
2. Creating Stunning Slides and Visuals with AI
You don’t need to spend long hours creating slides from scratch anymore. Great visuals will grab the audience’s attention and help them concentrate and memorize the content. Learn how tools such as:
- Zoho Show
And many others offer a wide array of pre-designed templates that you can customize to match your presentation’s theme. AI can do the heavy lifting while you focus on delivering a killer presentation. There are many rules for creating slides and their content, and you can learn more about them here.

3. Rehearse Like a Pro. Use AI tools to practice a presentation
Practice makes perfect, right? Well, AI tools can take your practice sessions to the next level. Platforms like:
- Virtual Speech
AI tools provide real-time feedback on your tone, pacing, and body language, allowing you to polish your presentation skills and build confidence. These tools can also help you deliver and elevate your stage presence. Moreover, the Virtual Speech app enables you to present in front of a virtual audience. For this, you will need VR goggles. Research shows that practicing in front of avatars can efficiently help tackle glossophobia and stage fright. If you struggle with stress, you can also familiarize yourself with relaxation techniques.

- Google Translate
- SDL Trados Studio
- PROMT Translator
and similar tools break down language barriers, ensuring your message resonates with diverse audiences around the world. Your presentation can be more inclusive if you generate real-time subtitles or add them to the edited version on YT or Vimeo. Many research centers are currently working on creating tools for people with hearing impairment to offer sign language translation. It’s complicated, as a human factor of mimic, body language is involved. The futurists of AI predict that sooner or later, we will have glasses that will translate any conversation, movie, or presentation in real time. Until then, during a presentation, as far as possible, it’s worth using tools to make it more accessible.
6. Interactive audience experience- engaging the audience with AI tools
You have probably experienced listening to a presentation when zero interaction was provided. Sound boring? Definitely! You can avoid it and turn your presentation into a dialogue with AI-driven Q&A platforms.

8. Language Refinement and Grammar with AI
These tools help you to refine language, correct grammar mistakes, suggest vocabulary improvements, and enhance overall clarity. Grammarly and Linguiox are beneficial for non-native speakers of English. They can help ensure that your message is clear and correct.
9. Speech-to-text and transcription of your voice recording with AI

Hi. Welcome to my blog 🙂 I’m a psychologist and public speaking trainer. In 2021 I was chosen as one of the top 11 public-speaking coaches worldwide 2021, according to the Coach Foundation ranking. I work as a TEDx coach and Head of Speakers at TEDxZurich. I also help, among others, lawyers, vocalists, actors, lecturers and business people in preparation for their speeches in front of hundreds of people in the audience, as well as in conducting small meetings or presentations. For many years I worked on controlling the stage fright that kept me awake at night. I was singing and dancing in a Cuban musical. I have always wondered how to manage the internal critic, not to worry about the opinion of others, and how to build a real sense of confidence on stage. Now I know the answer.
Recently, I have given countless interviews, which made me aware of the importance of confidence in front of the camera. Having been involved in music since the age of 10, I know how stressful it can be to present to a wider audience. By combining my business and music experience, I can guide you through the process of changing direction towards your dreams. Based on my vast stage experience, I have gained the ability to provide adequate tools and methods of coaching that will support your development.
