3 Essential Question: How can we prepare for delivering an extemporaneous technical presentation, and have the job skills we need for our future?

4 Extemporaneous technical presentation.
Use an introduction to get the speech going. Humor may be used in the introduction. Reasons for a good introduction are to: 1. Get the audience’s attention; 2. Introduce your topic; 3. Show the importance of your topic; 4. Present your facts; and 5. Forecast your main ideas.

5 Extemporaneous technical presentation.
Do not try and memorize what you will say Trying to memorize will only make you nervous, and you will find yourself thinking about the words and not about the message. Use non-verbal communication. Step forward after the introduction. Take a few steps when you start a new point. Remember to use hand gestures. Do not put your hands in your pockets.

6 Extemporaneous technical presentation.
Start off with a strong opening idea with confidence. Then try and organize your ideas in your head. If you know you have three points or ideas to say, just start off simple by saying, "I would just like to talk about 3 points." The first point is... the second point is... and so on.

7 Extemporaneous technical presentation.
Decide on your transitions from one idea to the next. If you have more than one point to make, you can use a natural transition such as, "My second point is... or my next point is..." Maintain eye contact with the audience. Look down at your next idea or thought and then regain eye contact with your audience.

8 Extemporaneous technical presentation.
Speak clearly and with good volume. Be articulate. Remember the element of time is important in a speech. Have a good conclusion. You can summarize your basic points if needed. Reasons for a conclusion are to: 1. Inform the audience you are about to close; 2. Summarize and recap your major ideas; and 3. Leave your audience with specific ideas about your topic.

9 Extemporaneous technical presentation.
Remember these points: Do not have chewing gum. Stand up straight. Use visual aids and examples. Make sure the points support the goal and purpose of speech.
