Presentation tips • Know your topic. • Know your audience. • Stay brief and to the point. • Talk in a clear, strong voice. Do not yell, but do not whisper. • Maintain good eye contact. • Stand straight and still. • If you have visual aids (posters, pictures, etc.) be sure that they are clear, and that everyone in the room can see them and that they contain no misspelled words.
