Slides to accompany a 90-minute workshop on how to create effective presentations. Main points: prepare but establishing purpose, audience, good research and understanding your mode of communication; one key point per slide; use images to convey ideas not decorate slides; don't present masses of data as this will dilute your message; use stories; balance between inclusion of academic content and good visual presentation. Preparation and slide construction covered in slides. Presentation style only covered in face-to-face session. Originally presented by Matt Cornock and Juliet Koprowska as part of the SPSW PhD Seminar Series, 9 October 2013, University of York.
