INTRODUCTIONSIntroduce yourselves find a partner you dont knowName, position, organisationYour research/project (one headline ambition no detailed info!)What difference would it make to win for you/organisation/projectOne thing about yourself nobody else knows
Present your partner ONE MINUTE MAXIMUM!
Organise your ideas logically. Help the audience to follow you: make sure you bridge your ideas to make the presentation flow.Pace yourself. Give the majority of the time to the most important things you have to say in your presentation.
Stick to what you know. Don't stray into the unknown: be disciplined about keeping to topics that you have the confidence and track record to deliver well.Use visual aids to compliment your message. Visual aids should aid the message: make sure they do not steal the audiences attention. Connect with your audience. Make eye contact. Interact with them by asking questions, seek volunteers, and maintain a conversational style. Q+As are ways of letting people get involved.Display confidence and poise. You may feel very nervous, but if you can display confidence, the audience will be confident in what you have to say. SECRETS OF A GOOD PRESENTATION: STRUCTURE
"Less is more on a slide show. Too much information on a single slide becomes unreadable, especially when it is projected on a big screen for a large audience. Delhi-based Ajay Jain, CEO, TCP Media
Use quotations, facts, and statistics. These can be used to both compliment and reinforce your ideas.Make use of metaphors. Metaphors can enhance the meaning of your message in a way that direct language cannot. Tell a story. Everyone loves a story. This will make your presentation more memorable and less dull. Have a strong start and finish. Audiences tend to remember what you begin your presentation with and what you finish on. If they remember anything from the middle this is a sign that you are being an effective presenter! Use humour. But carefully: think about your audience.Pick the key ideas from your research and draft your presentation around them.Use strong visual images that serve a purpose - irrelevant pictures distract and detract
SECRETS OF A GOOD PRESENTATION: ORGANISING CONTENT
Choose a font that is easy to read (e.g. Ariel or Helvetica)Use a large font size (18-24pt) No more thanfour to five bulleted points per slideUse short sentences:
