  3. How to present effectively • 2 general rules • Look appropriate • Use appropriate language • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE3CKN3JAh0&feature=related • Three P’s

  4. Three P’s • 1. Planning • First, know your time budget. Fixed or flexible? Even if you have an open-ended timeframe, budget time for all the information you want to cover. Of course timing depends on content, but one to three minutes per slide is a good rule of thumb. Make hard choices about what to leave in and what to take out — before you start talking. • Studies confirm common sense: people's attention decreases as presentations go on, and twenty minutes is the optimum timeframe for delivery of one-way information. For longer presentations, break up the content into sections of 20 minutes or less — and always leave time at the end for Q&A. • 2. Practice • The most important time spent on a presentation is in preparation. Practice at least one complete run-through with a clock or stopwatch, and ask a colleague, friend or spouse to be your test audience. They can also help determine time needed for reading text, charts, or graphics. • The slide that only takes 30 seconds to read through yourself might take 2 or 3 minutes to deliver aloud at a professional, even pace. • 3. Pace • We all have a tendency to rush when delivering presentations, especially when we're nervous. Regardless of how much planning or practice you've put in, remembering two simple words is guaranteed to improve your presentation: slow down. • Great storytellers and performers all share a common strength: a sense of pace, or phrasing. Remember that silence can work in your favor, as it lets your audience absorb what you've just said – or, better yet, write it down. • In the end, you will be more effective selling, raising funding, informing, or whatever your objective is if you deliver your presentation to your audience professionally.
