Solid content is essential for a good presentation, so make sure you’ve done your research
Your presentation will go much smoother if your notes and visual aids are easy for you to use.
Use visual aids, questions and activities to engage your audience.
Stand straight, make eye contact with your audience, and smile. Avoid distracting behaviours, like chewing gum or fidgeting.
Be sure to go through your full presentation several times before giving it to your class. Do it on your own and with an audience.
Practicing will make it easier to manage your natural anxiety during your presentation.
Prepare short speaking notes.
Try to write only the keywords or key points on cue cards so that you won’t be tempted to read.
Take your time.
Speaking slowly will help you avoid excessive verbal fillers (“ummm” or “ahhhh”).
