Suggestions for Making Your Presentation Successful

  • Introduce yourself to your session Chair(s) before the session starts.
  • The first slide is your Title slide, followed by the Disclosure slide.
  • Be considerate and selective, and keep it simple: You only have a limited time to present your information. There may have been speakers prior to your presentation, and there may be others after you. Also, the audience may have questions. Thus, do not try to tell the audience everything possible—focus your slides and your talk on the key.
  • Tips:
    • Use a large font (about 28 points for your main text) that is easily readable from the back of the main room.
    • Give people a web link or email address in case they want to ask more questions.
    • Feel free to include a slide listing all of the collaborators or funders, but don’t spend too much time reading each name out loud.
