Presentation Skills Roadmap


  1. Have something to say. Think about your audience’s level of knowledge.

2. What NOT to do! Too much information on an image! Slide must be relevant!

3. List salient points. Generally no more than three.

4. Prioritise presentation points in logical sequence.

5. Assemble the framework. Good start, sensible development and clear conclusion.

6. PowerPoint adds or detracts from a presentation.

7. Practice speaking out loud. Modify the words where you stumble.

8. Integrate images with words – but words are vital.

9. Final assembly and test. Ensure images and the script agree.

10. Check out venue and audience expectations.
