marketing the presentation
Marketing the Presentation
  • TTS announces upcoming sessions to techexpress@lists and techbriefings@lists, through RSS feeds and SU Events.
  • In addition, presenters often send email to their special interest groups regarding upcoming presentations. They know their potential audience best, and get a good response. TTS has a template that can help you craft a such an email, or we can send it on your behalf if you supply the email text and/or mailing list.
  • Provide a brief bio that we can use in our marketing and to introduce you.
  • If there are other ways in which TTS can help presenters market your sessions, call us at 723-4391.

preparing the presentation
Preparing the Presentation
  • Plan presentations ahead of time and know what materials and equipment are needed. Let TTS know ONE WEEK in advance for special requests.
  • Contact TTS for a pre-presentation orientation (walk-through) of the technology in the room, if necessary. To do a “dry-run” in Turing Auditorium before your presentation, contact TTS at least one week ahead.
  • Create good visual aids. These can be PowerPoint slides or websites.
  • Handouts are recommended. They may be copies of a PowerPoint presentation, a URL to go to for more information, and/or contact information for the speaker or group.
  • Arrive at least 15 to 30 minutes before the start of your presentation for setup.
  • If you haven’t already done so, please fill out and sign the release form so we can publish your talk on the Tech Briefing website (

during the presentation
During the Presentation
  • Repeat questions asked by the audience. Depending on the size of your crowd, those in the back may not hear the question clearly. This is particularly important for people who will be viewing the presentation online.
  • These sessions are interactive. Please allow time at the end of your presentation for Q & A.
  • If you experience technical problems, please see the TTS contact, or call Tech Training at 723-4391.
