Professionalism
Speaking
Has anyone ever sat through a boring presentation?

Make sure you have been formally introduced

KNOW THE MATERIAL
Memorize your initial comments
Study the information
Use an outline? Something to keep you on track
Be prepared for questions--Must be able to explain information in multiple ways
Use examples, quotes, metaphors
Be organized

Outline your presentation
KISS Approach--Keep it stupid simple, then expand
Avoid "TMI"--Too much information
Stay focused and be concise
Avoid 100 slide Powerpoints

Engage audience
Get their attention
Ask questions
Involve them
Q/A
Be courteous; Don't forget to thank your audience

Summary
Practice makes perfect

Great speakers/presenters are made, not born

Be compelling

Speaking and presentation aptitudes are underrated
Skills will stay with you
Presenting in the "real world" happens everyday
Don't depend on technology
Don't read from slides
If you know the material, you won't need slides
Tech-support is support; supplement to your presentation
Technology can fail

Be creative
Aids: pictures, videos, graphs, presentation software, handouts, etc.

Be careful
Reference material must be appropriate
Avoid superfluous materials
Choose template wisely
Again, know your audience
Straight-forward designs
