Tips for Presentation Preparation and Delivery
- Official list of expectations for presenters, including presenter conduct
- PLEASE DO THIS! (A very short, very important, list of what to do during your session.)
✔ Always use the microphones provided so members can hear the presentation without straining.
✔ Repeat all questions or have attendees speak into microphone to ask them.
✔ Occasionally check for attendee feedback to ensure attendees can hear, see, etc.
✔ Remind session attendees to complete evaluations on paper or on the conference app.
