Presenting Your Material

QuickTips

  • Get the attention of the audience with a little-known fact, a statistic or a challenge
  • Organize your presentation in advance, including the time to be spent on each point to ensure you stay within your timeframe
  • Give the audience a clear outline of the issues that will be addressed at the beginning of your presentation. Stick to your outline when presenting and do not go off on tangents
  • Convey energy and passion about your topic by sharing a relevant experience from your practice
  • Deliver your presentation in a conversational style – never read your materials to the audience
  • Use charts, diagrams or images to supplement your presentation. Visual aids can clarify concepts, and raise the interest level of the attendees
