Guide for first presentation

1
Time limits
• Respect them
• 5 minutes tops
• 9 minutes!!!
2
Slides
• Minimize words
• Audience-focus: Presenter
• Slides punctuate
3
Your slides should look more like the one
before this slide, not this one because this is a
good example of a bad slide. N’est-ce pas?
• You should use the absolute minimum number of words
on a slide to prompt you and your audience
• You don’t want your audience to be focused on your
slides – they should be focused on you - not reading
your slides. So wordy slides should be avoided
• The slide should just highlight what you are talking about
because if you put a lot of words you will have a
tendency to read to your audience and meantime your
audience won’t be sure what they should be focusing on.
So many presentations are ruined before they start
because of crappy slides like this one. So don’t make
any slides like this or else! Got it?
