The What and the Why
What is a presentation?
What is not a presentation?
A spot of science
Auditory Cortex Visual Cortex
"It is effective to speak to a diagram, because it presents information in a different form. But it is not effective to speak the same words that are written, because it is putting too much load on the mind and decreases your ability to understand what is being presented.“ - John Sweller
Why do good people make bad presentations?
Death to Powerpoint?
Be a storyteller (we all are)
“To be a person is to have a story to tell.” Isaak Dinesen
Make better slides
Guns don’t kill people, bullets kill people
Emotions, visualizations and data, not bullet points
A working process
Start away from the computer
It will get messy!
Post-Its are your friends!
Only then should you go to presentationware
Don’t be a PowerPoint Ninja!
”The singer, not the song” - Mick Jagger
Take control of the room
Get the gear right
Know thyself Know thy gear!
Timing is everything (almost)
Don’t hide behind the lectern
You can leave the light on
Accidents can will happen
”Failure is always an option” - Adam Savage
What if I get nervous?
Remembering it all
Everybody loves dessert…
Handouts and Take aways
Graphs and figures are images, too
