  5. Informative Introduction • Firstly, introduce yourselves and go through your Agenda • This will orientate your audience and gives them an idea of what to expect in your presentation

  6. Know Your Content • Learn your presentation content • Allows for more eye contact with audience and an engaging presentation • "Practice makes perfect” • Say it in your own words • If you forget what you're supposed to say, try to improvise and keep the presentation going

  7. Eliminate Bad Habits • Pick up on any distracting habits you oryour partners may have and try to eliminate them • Avoid swaying, excessive hand gestures, saying “um” or “like” too much, etc. • Watch videos of presentations and keynote speeches and make note of the good, the bad, and the better

  8. Connect with your Audience • Be comfortable when speaking to the audience • Treat it as a conversation with friends • Smile, make eye contact, add humour! • Consider including interactivity with the audience—e.g. trivia questions • Let the audience participate in your presentation

  9. Use Visual Aids • Include visual aids—e.g. show a short video; include pictures, graphs, tables, sample survey/ interview questions • Connect these to your topic, organization, and marketing strategies • Provides relief from reading text, and it will show your audience another perspective of your proposals

  10. Don't overdo it • Don't use too many colours or have too much text in your PowerPoint or other visual aids, let yourselves do the talking • YOU are the main presenter of the presentation • Keep the design of visual aids clean, simple, consistent and easy to follow

  11. Work as a Group • Presentations are two-way; you see the audience and the audience sees you • maintain eye contact, smile at the audience while partner isspeaking • occasionally nod and look over at your partner (support them)
