11 10 Rule 1: Plan & Practice Without planning, presentations appear thrown together Without practice you appear unprepared

12 11 Rule 2: Use the Spell-Checker There is no excuse for misspelling! Why should your customer trust your engineering quality if you have no quality control over your presentation?

13 12 Rule 3: Don't read or memorize How would you like it if professors read from the textbook? l Guaranteed to produce boredom l Use bullets to trigger thoughts l Speak extemporaneously l Practice out-loud in front of your teammates l Requires planning ahead (see rule 1)

14 13 Rule 4: Avoid "um", "and uh", "ya know", etc. This habit stems from not practicing enough (see rule #1) l Slow down your speech l Deliberate as you speak l Don’t apologize for being nervous Your audience will appreciate your delivery much more

16 15 Rule 6: Display Confidence l Expect to be challenged on your ideas l Don’t take questions as a personal attack l Defensive Response = Added Attack l Open Response = Greater Latitude

17 16 Rule 7: Don’t be Apathetic or Nonchalant l If you don’t care, why should your customer care? l If you don’t care, why should your manager support you? l If you don’t care, why should your audience listen? An apathetic presentation is a waste of everyone’s time

18 17 Rule 8: Show Professional Courtesy l Be on time for other presentations l Give your full attention to the presentations of others l Avoid an air of aloofness or unpreparedness

19 18 Rule 9: Anticipate Questions You know your design better than anyone l Think about the parts which will raise questions l Think about the areas in your presentation which may be unclear. l Plan ahead (see rule1) and prepare some holdback slides l Demonstrate foresight and initiative.

20 19 Rule 10: Expect Equipment Failure Fancy equipment is impressive...unless it doesn't work! l Know how to use your equipment l Keep a set of hardcopy slides just in case l Have an extra bulb for the overhead projector

21 20 Rule 11: Design Readable Slides l 20 point font size or larger l 7 bullets or less l 7 words per bullet or less l Separate complex ideas onto multiple slides This presentation uses 32 point Arial font
