Presentation Suggestions

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 SimpleUse simple, easy-to-understand graphics that can easily interpreted at a distance. Cite your image sources.
  • Minimize TextKeep 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 AdvanceMake your presentation available before you begin so participants can follow on their own device.
  • Keep an Eye on the TimeAs 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.
