Motivation Quotation......

Aku meminta kepada Tuhan setangkai bunga, segar, Ia beri kaktus berduri. Aku minta kupu-kupu diberinya-Nya ulat berbulu. Aku sedih dan kecewa. Namun kemudian, kaktus itu berbunga indah sekali dan ulat itupun menjadi kupu-kupu yang sangat cantik. Itulah jalan Tuhan, indah pada masaNYA! Tuhan tidak memberi apa yang kita harapkan. Tapi Dia memberi apa yang kita perlukan. Kadang kala kita sedih, kecewa dan terluka. Tapi jauh di atas segalanya Dia sedang mengatur yang terbaik dalam kehidupan kita.............................................

Giving a conference presentation by Dr Ela Beaumont

How are presentations assessed?
Your tutor is looking for a presentation that is:
appropriate for your audience
focused on a few key points
uses good examples
well structured
well researched

The 7 deadly sins
Don’t apologize
Give a reason why your audience should pay attention
Tailor your presentation to your audience
Don’t tell your audience more than they need to know
Don’t read from your script
Don’t read every word on your visual

Be kind to your audience

You are the message
Use visual aids
Simplify, simplify, simplify
Use colour
Use pictures and graphs
Be comfortable with your visual aids
Rehearse, rehearse,rehearse

Using powerpoint
Use the PowerPoint to demonstrate what you are saying, not to repeat what you are saying

Don’t use the PowerPoint slides as prompt cards

Use the Notes Pages as personal prompts for yourself

Are you nervous?????
Breathe deeply
Memorize the first 3 minutes of your talk
Speak from postcards or poster
Arrive early
Meet and talk to your audience
Release tension

Manage the time....
Construct your presentations in modules
Build in checkpoints
You will start late
Plan to finish on time
Plan to finish early
Speak slowly

The conclusion
Remember your audience
People remember what they hear last
What note do you want to end on?
Prepare a good closing line

Dealing with Q and A session
Anticipate the question and have an answer ready
Repeat the question for the rest of the audience
Keep it brief
Talk to the whole audience
Take your time
