Pointers for a good presentation

Consider the following:

  1. Honour the time limit. You may have an interesting presentation, but maybe others want to present, too.
  2. Put your sub-topics into a logical sequence.
  3. Rehearse the speech.
  4. Try to grasp tha attention of the audience right at the beginning.
  5. Do not start with "OK, I try to do it..." või "Well, I'n no speaker"... Be reasonably confident, yet not arrogant.
  6. If the topic does not need slang use, do not use it. If it does, do it in moderation.
  7. Try to avoid fillers ("You know, ...", "Like, ...", "I mean, ...", "Well, ...").
  8. Slides should support and illustrate the presentation, but not duplicate the speech.
  9. Use effects (animations, sound) to stress important points, but do not overdo it.
  10. Try to develop a personal 'brand' style for presentations.
  11. The number of slides varies, but the rule of thumb could be one slide per 2-3 minutes (thus, 5-10 slides for a 20-minute presentation).
