Making the Presentation

  • Introduce Yourself, Thank Audience
  • “Bookends”
    • Tell Them What You are Going Tell Them
    • Tell Them
    • Tell Them What You Just Told Them
  • Carefully Plan Your Time
    • One to Two Minutes per Slide
    • Do NOT try to fit 40 Slides into 25 Minutes!
    • You WILL be Scrambling, Skipping Slides
    • Do NOT Digress, You Will Run Out of Time
    • Leave Time for Questions and Discussion
slide3

Delivering

  • Speak Clearly, Loudly and Slowly
  • Pause at Key Points
  • Be EXTREMELY Careful Using Humor
    • These are Often Disastrous
  • Smooth Transitions Between Speakers “Now, John will discuss…” vs.
  • “Whose slide is this?... Not me, you go.”
  • Use Hands and Laser Pointer to Highlight
  • Do not get Overzealous with Them
  • Use Positive Body Language (Stand Tall)
  • Indicates that you Believe in Your Work
slide4

Delivering

Look at the Audience as much as Possible

Avoid Staring at the Screen

Do Not Stare at Anyone in Audience

Sweep Across Audience with Your Eyes

Stand so that the Audience can Clearly See Each Team-Member (Do Not Hide)

You may use Both Sides to Stand

Feel Free to Move, but Avoid Pacing

Speak Naturally, but NOT Conversationally

Build on Connections with Audience

Use the Audience’s Names if Possible

slide5

The Slides

Pick a Nice Background With Good Contrast to Text

Use Only One Transition (If Any at All)

No Need for Text to Fly in from the Bottom, Spin Twice and Blink!!!

More Figures, Less Text

Diverse Figures (Drawings, Pictures)

Put Triggers Directly onto Slides, Figures

Use Section Dividers

Font Should be Easy to Read, 28+ pt. Size

Final Remarks

Dress Nice (aka. Look Professional)

Relax, No One is “Trying to Get You”

Thank the Audience, Then Ask for Questions

When Fielding Questions: Pause, Think, and Answer the Best that You Can

Qualify Answers When You are Not Certain

It’s Far Better to Say “You Don’t Know” than it is to give a False Statement

Video, Animations Only When Justified
