Introduce yourself always introduce yourself and your topic briefly explain the process that you are going to follow with your presentation. Be professional your appearance (dress and grooming), the quality of your handouts and your visual presentation, etc., are very important.


10 Less is more. Keep it simple.
The Big Rule: Tell them what you're going to tell them.  Tell them.  Tell them what you told them. Try to have a good time - presenting can be hell or heaven, it's all up to you. Less is more. Keep it simple.

23 Dealing with questions
Some phrases which can be useful when you want to avoid questions: That’s not really my field, but I can put you in touch with someone who is an expert in the field. Well, I think that goes beyong the scope of today’s presentation. I’m afraid we’ve run out of time. I haven't got the precise information with me today. That's not really for me to say. This is not really the place to discuss that matter. Perhaps that's a question for another meeting.

24 How to avoid a boring presentation?

25 How to avoid a boring presentation?
Work on vocal variety! Speak to the audience as if in a one-to-one conversation so as to sound more natural. Lighten up! Add a bit of humor. There are lots of true and humorous anecdotes that would elicit laughter and get audience members on your side. Laughter will also ease a presenter’s tension. Don’t tell us everything you know! We must not feel that we have to pack everything we know into one presentation. Usually covering three main points/topics is sufficient for a dynamic presentation.

26 How to avoid a boring presentation?
Use visual aid with care! Don’t read what audience members can see already - you lose their attention quickly. Also, boring visuals with lots of words and no graphics are a complete turnoff. Involve the audience! Ask the audience questions and encourage them to ask us questions or make comments on your statements. Prepare, prepare, prepare and practice, practice, practice! The more prepared you are, the more comfortable and enthusiastic you will be when presenting. Work on all of these you’ll never, never, never be boring!

27 You can gain the audience’s attention by:
telling an anecdote, a joke mentioning a really surprising fact or statistic stating a problem asking a question The question "How many people here have a home computer?" is a lot more interesting than "Today I'm going to tell you about the Internet.“
