Presentation Skills - tok focusPresentation Transcript
my presentation skills are crap please help ME ! Pep Talk to Grade 12 TOK students
Your audience will read your slides faster than you talk. Never, ever, ever, put word-for-word what you are saying, instead use strong visuals to help add to your story, and not to give it away before it comes out of your mouth Ideally, I would eliminate 90% of this text in a face-to-face presentation
When someone puts all their text in a presentation, I say to myself…. What is the point of being here…! just email me your presentation and I will read it later

Text is ok at times if you are focusing on your main points, or wish to add particular emphasis. Think about how you add text in relation to images. Choose appropriatecolours, match fonts, and think carefully about size and order of importance.
“Never was so much owed by so many, to so few” Winston Churchill, August 20th 1940
