  • The best way to have a great ignite presentation is to start by picking out a topic you can talk a lot about. You then need to prepare each slide and pick something that is relevant, interesting and something worth sharing to your peers. It’s important to prep yourself in the beginning to have a better presentation in the end.
  • Its best to practice your speech numerous times in order to be perfect. You should not just wing the presentation because you wont no if it will last for the whole 5 minute limit.
  • In order to have an affective presentation you need to make sure it has structure and not just all over the place. You should have an introduction, body, and a conclusion. This will allow the audience to follow along with the presentation and know what is being talked about.
  • Keep your audience focused and engaged in your presentation. This can be done in many different techniques.
  • You should not swear in your presentation. This is unprofessional and can be disrespectful towards others in the audience.
  • You should try and keep your hands out of your pocket because it makes you look not as interested and enthusiastic about your presentation, which will then make your audience not feel as interested.
  • You should never keep your eyes on the slides or at your notecards. Instead you should always be facing the audience and speaking to them. This is the best way to keep there attention and stay toned in listening to you give your presentation.
  • You should practice your presentation enough so you don’t have to use notecards. Notecards can be distracting to both the audience as well as yourself. You should have enough information and pictures on your slide to help you remember what to talk about if you forget.
  • You only have five minutes to give your presentation so you want to make sure there is a point to your presentation and your slides are there to back up your point.
  • You want to limit the text on your slides. Otherwise the audience will pay less attention to you speaking and more attention to reading what is on the slides.
  • You need to be able to pick a font that everyone can see and read from anywhere in the room.
  • Its important to make eye contact with the audience so they are getting full attention. It can sometimes be distracting on the speaker to look into someone eyes, the best place to look is slightly above or below there eyes.
  • Humor can be used to break tension in both the audience and can also help the speak connect with the audience better.
  • You need to pick an appropriate color that everyone in the audience can easily see. You don’t want the text color to blend in with your pictures.
  • You should have little to no animation on your slides. This can be very destracting to the audience and takes up a lo of time.
  • Visuals are very helpful to illustrate the point you are trying to make in the presentation. It allows the audience to understand and follow along better.
  • Charts, graphs and tables can be a great way to present information if they are used properly.
  • Clipart should not be used in a presentation. It does not look professional and most likely everyone has seen those pictures before at some point.
