General Hints for a Better Presentation Have points on your transparencies not paragraphs. Do not put everything you want to say on transparencies Do not put too many points on one transparency Remember the 7+- 2 phenomenon Explain things using your own words rather than read it from the transparencies or from a separate sheet. Prepare well, utilize other references if necessary, and rehearse your presentation.
General Hints for a Better Presentation (Cont.) Do not concentrate on details. Details take too much time and make you loose the audience attention. If you need to show the depth of your coverage/knowledge, utilize a single point and discuss it in depth. Be clear, precise and focused on the idea you are explaining Stick to the time allocated to you.
