Tips For A Successful Presentation
- Presentations should about an hour (inclusive of questions) and be in camp/con format with a slide deck.
- Feel free to fill your slides up with links/resources since people can download them after the presentation.
- Slides should follow the classic approach:
- This is what I am going to tell you
- This is me telling you
- This is what I told you
- We video record these so, “sitting and typing” doesn’t work as well.
- It is a small audience, so you can easily interact with them.
- It is up to you the tone you want to set. You can start off by engaging the audience and thus encouraging questions throughout, or you can just do your thing and most people will wait until the end for questions.
- Obviously, if someone does have a question, we don’t stop them from interrupting.
- Never count on quality internet. Your presentation should be saved on your hard drive.
