As you prepare your presentations, please consider the following:
- Plan Out your Presentation: Practice your presentation in full before arriving. Time yourself to ensure you are not exceeding your allotted session period. At the same time, don’t rush yourself. One slide every 2-3 minutes of presentation should provide adequate pacing for your audience.
- Keep It Simple: Use simple, easy-to-understand graphics that can easily interpreted at a distance. Cite your image sources.
- Minimize Text: Keep text on your slides to a minimum. Slides should enhance the presenter, not compete with them.
- Maximize Visibility: For both graphics and text, always use high contrast color. Black text on a white background is best for all viewers.
- Share in Advance: Make your presentation available before you begin so participants can follow on their own device.
- Keep an Eye on the Time: As a courtesy to the next presenter and their need to set-up, please end your session on time and continue any networking conversations outside the presentation space.
