Presentation Guidelines

What is an Oral Presentation?

As an oral presenter, you can deliver your presentation live to an audience effectively and engage in fruitful discussions with the audience. The registration fee packages (Registration Link) present many benefits to oral presenters.

Guidelines for presentation

right-arrowConsider the sequence and relevancy of your slides. A current slide should build a path to next slide.

right-arrowUse graphs and charts to illustrate your prominent points. They will help the audience to clearly understand the content

right-arrowMake it simple. Too much fancy graphs and charts with huge data and numbers will confuse the audience. Don’t use flash, gif images and fancy colors. The audience will only remember those effects, not your message. Make it simple!

right-arrowUse the 6-6-6 rule: (maximum 6 words per bullet, maximum 6 bullets per slide, and maximum 6 text slides in a row). The fewest words with effective imagery will have the most powerful effect

right-arrowUse high-contrast, easy-to-read fonts that are common to most computers. Do not use ALL CAPS, italics, and other enhancements that clutter and distract. A good guideline is a minimum of 30-point font

Steps to Present Effectively

right-arrowPlease follow the guidelines below to make your presentation effective. The tips below will help you to keep the audience interested throughout your presentation.

right-arrowForm a story: Try to tell a story rather than give too much of information. Organize your thoughts, develop a good transitions between slides

right-arrowUse visual aids: Visual aids such as slides attract and hold an audience’s attention and help to reinforce what you say as well as help you keep on track with your presentation. You need to keep things visuals – and your remarks – simple and easy to read and understand.

right-arrowKick off start: Start the presentation with some eye-opening facts from your findings. One good way to get the audience’s attention is to start with a question.

right-arrowMake the case relevant to the audience: Make your points in presenting your findings to the audience. The more relevant your presentation is to the audience the more interested they will be.

right-arrowReduce your introduction: The session chair will introduce you and save time for important points.

right-arrowNever read from your slides: Your audience will be reading your slides. Support them with more clarifications.

right-arrowPractice speaking: Practice as much as possible and consider the time you are given. You will only have 15 – 20 min. use it wisely, fully and effectively. The more you practice, the more comfortable you will be.

right-arrowAvoid jargon: Using more specific words may reduce the audience’s interest. Especially when speaking about your institute’s/company’s processes.

right-arrowGive priority to your findings: Give priority to your findings and outcomes. Reduce the time that you spend on background.
