PRESENTATION Anti-Patterns
10 THINGS YOU should avoid IN YOUR NEXT PRESENTATION
10. NEVER OFFEND THE AUDIENCE
OFFEND THE AUDIENCE EITHER intentionally
or unintentionally AND YOUR
PRESENTATION IS AS GOOD AS OVER
9. HAVE NO EGO
THIS JUST IN: YOU JUST MIGHT NOT BE THE
rock star YOU THINK YOU ARE
8. AVOID POLITICS AND RELIGION
UNLESS YOU ARE presenting about politics
or religion, BE WARY OF VOICING AN
OPINION ON EITHER
7. AVOID PROFANITY
At best, YOU MIGHT DRAW A LAUGH
At worst, IT CREATES A SENSE OF
AWKWARDNESS WHERE PEOPLE WILL
CRINGE
6. NEVER PRESENT SOMEONE ELSE'S PRESENTATION
THERE WILL BE no story, YOU'LL BE
UNPREPARED, AND YOU’LL LIKELY END UP
reading the slides VERBATIM
5. NEVER PRESENT FROM SOMEONE ELSE’S MACHINE
STUFF INSTALLED or missing FROM THAT
MACHINE MIGHT KILL YOUR PRESENTATION
4. DON'T LET ANYONE MAKEOVER YOUR SLIDES
TEMPLATES THAT don’t need applying
FONTS THAT don’t need changing
IMAGES THAT don’t need moving
3. NEVER MOVE ROOM OR LOCATION
UNLESS YOUR ROOM IS UNINHABITABLE,
avoid changing rooms AT THE LAST
MINUTE
2. NEVER MESS WITH PROFESSIONAL A/V EQUIPMENT
RELY INSTEAD ON A DEDICATED A/V TEAM,
TO help you out
1. NEVER FORGET YOUR PRESENTATION REMOTE
HAVING A GOOD PRESENTATION REMOTE
ALLOWS BETTER INTERACTION WITH YOUR
AUDIENCE AND WILL unchain you from the
podium
