Inform. </li></ul>Know your audience and use their interests within your presentation. <br />This will allow for the presentation to keep everyone's captivation.<br />
Organization is Key!<br />Make sure to provide clear and to the point information in your presentation. There is very little room to beat around the bush.<br />Ensure that none of the information is too complex for any listener. Pretend your audience has no previous education on the subject matter.<br />Each slide within your presentation should follow a basic outline:<br /><ul><li>Main Idea
Closing statement</li></li></ul><li>Technical setup!<br />Master the software or device you are using to develop you presentation such as Microsoft Office Power Point or Digital Projectors.<br />Confusion with your media will create a disconnection between you and your audience.<br />Ensure the all the information in your presentation belongs in it by reading it over after you think your done!<br />Make sure the content of videos from www.youtube.com are appropriate for school and are used to enhance your presentation.<br />
Close Up!<br />Not only the presentations appearance is important! <br />Make sure you dress the part and show positive body language.<br />Pace yourself while delivering your message and also project your voice so everyone in the room can hear your message.<br />Moving around while presenting is not a bad thing!<br />Use your body as emphasis on the information much like another form of communication.<br />
Add Graphics!<br />Pictures, charts, graphs, video clips and more!<br />All these create points of interest for your audience and keep them entertained while delivering your information.<br />Pictures usually directly involve either the entire presentation idea or just the current slides theme.<br />Charts and graphs provide vital facts about your subject in your favor.<br />Video clips allow the audience to see what possible others think about your subject or possible a short documentary on the information.<br />
Wrap Up!<br />Ending your presentation on a good note is important!<br />Make sure you covered the material and left no room for any confusion.<br />Allow time for questions!<br />Giving the audience the opportunity to ask questions allows you to cover anything you may have forgot while presenting and make up for it.<br />Also remember to know any possible questions that your audience may ask.<br />If by any chance you don’t know the answer, have references for them. Possibly a website link.<br />
