Tips for a “good” technical seminar

These are only TIPS not RULES

 

  • If you are nervous before or during a seminar, YOU ARE NOT ALONE
  • The first step in doing so is to accept that there is nothing to be ashamed of in not being able to speak good English.
  • Set goals for the talk -Frame questions that you would like the audience to know answers to at the end of your talk.
  • Talk to your audience – Don’t talk to yourself. You are giving a seminar/talk, not delivering a speech
  • You have to be the master of what you are talking about.
  • Don’t have anything on your slide that you don’t intend to talk about.
  • Use images to explain the conecpt i.e. A picture = A 1000 words.
  • A slide is only an aid to the presentation – If you are reading out a slide you are doing something wrong.
  • All Text should be large enough to read.
  • Choose the right color- 7% of the male population is red/green color blind.
  • Don’t put too much information on a slide.
  • Use animation only when required.
  • Rehearse your presentation.
  • Make Eye contact with your audience.
  • Speak loud and clear, but don’t shout.
  • Time Management -Have enough for the time allotted to you. Neither less nor EVEN A LITTLE more.
  • On answering questions – During a question answer session, if you don’t know the answer just say “I don’t know.” 
  • Learn to manage questions. If you think the question is relevant to communicating your ideas tackle it. If you think it is not, then put it off for a discussion at the end.
  • On managing time – Practice is the best way for 15 minute talks.
  • On being nervous – Prepare as if you are going to speak to a much more learned audience.
  • Present with the confidence of one who is much more learned.
