All Rights Reserved.

  • What are the key points you want to make?

  • Who is your audience? What are they interested in hearing and how familiar are they with your topic? Do they expect data or concepts?

  • Remember: A presentation is different than a paper. Don’t try to cover everything.

  • How big is the hall where you will be speaking?

  • How much time will you be given?
