  • 5. 3. MIX IT UPHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Use varying forms of media (videos, sound clips, pictures)• Have a hook to reel in audience• Use different effects but make sure that it helps the presentation, not distracts from it.

  • 9. 7. DON’T PARROT THE POWERPOINTHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Don’t put everything in the powerpoint• If your audience can learn everything they need to know by simply reading your powerpoint, you are doing it wrong• Powerpoint is only a tool designed to increase effectivebess of presentation

  • 15. 13. DON’T USE A SLIDE WHEN YOU DON’T HAVETO HTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Use black screens• Use slides only to highlight important information• This avoids overwhelming the audience and keeps the focus on you
  • 16. 13. GIVE OUT HANDOUTSHTTP://EGLOBIOTRAINING.COM/• Announce that handouts will be provided only after the presentation• This will keep the audience attentive knowing that they don’t have to copy everything• Only give out the handouts after in order not to preempt the audience to your presentation
