in front of people?

- ESL issue - talk slowly
- Noone can tell that you're nervous
- Be humourous.
Structuring your talk
- The rule of three's
- Maintain a logical order. Take your audience from one place to the next.
- Ending with inspiration.
Aids: Handouts, Overheads and Follow-ups
- There are three styles of learning.
- Kinesthetic (touching)
- Limitations of Handouts and Overheads
- Presentation needs to be more than just reading the overheads.
- Handouts should have space to write on.
- Electronic copies should be easily accessible.

- Be willing to say no to answering a question.
- Ask for names, repeat the question.
- Be conscious of the time.
