Title: The Art of Presenting

The Art of Presenting
  • Faculty of Social Sciences

What are we going to look at?
  • before the presentation
  • during the presentation
  • common mistakes
  • after the presentation

Plan your talk
  • what are your aims?
  • who is your audience?
  • where are you going to give your talk?
  • have a backup plan (if the computer crashes,
    more/fewer people come)

Think about the content
  • brainstorm your ideas
  • which ideas go best with your audience and what
    do you want your audience to learn?

Think about the structure
  • tell your audience what you are going to say
  • say it using examples and anecdotes
  • tell the audience again what you have said
  • four parts of a typical presentation
  • introduction
  • main body
  • conclusion
  • questions

Whats the difference between your audience and
an elephant?
The elephant never forgets the audience
occasionally remembers.
Think about using visual aids
  • graphs, charts and pictures are more
    comprehensible and easier to remember than a text
  • keep the same font, minimum 18pt font size on
  • not more than 5 bullet points per slide, maximum
    two lines long
  • use an overhead projector (OHP), slide projector,
    whiteboard, screen or flipchart
  • have handouts prepared

Practise your delivery
  • rehearse your talk
  • think about the body language, voice quality and
    eye contact try to smile
  • speak slowly, take pauses
  • you can refer to individuals in the audience

During the presentation (I.)
  • greet the audience and tell them who you are
  • know exactly how to start
  • keep to the time allowed (its good to spend max
    two minutes for each slide)
  • stick to the plan for the presentation
  • leave time for discussion (about 5 minutes)

During the presentation (II.)
  • enjoy yourself
  • use examples from everyday life, tell the
    audience some amazing facts they didnt know
  • ask questions, they can be rhetorical
  • treat your audience as equals
  • speak to five hundred people in the same way you
    would speak to five

Do not
  • read your presentation word by word
  • stand with your back towards your audience when
    showing something on the screen
  • stand in front of the screen
  • add to OHPs with a pen during the talk (the
    audience will be fascinated by your shaking hand)
  • leave one slide on the screen for a long time

Do not
  • move too much
  • use yellow and orange on your slides, these
    colours do not show up well
  • make special effort to sound funny

After the presentation
  • thank the audience
  • have yourself and materials available
  • tell the audience how to contact you
