How to present

I know a lot of people who hate presenting in front of an audience. You’ll find hundreds, if not thousands, of articles on the topic. But why are there still so many boring presentations? Perhaps people are not putting enough time and effort into planning their presentations and practising them?

Jan Runau (link to: gives us a few tips to focus on:

  1. Follow Groucho Marx.
  2. Work without PowerPoint.
  3. Present rather than read.
  4. Keep your slides simple.
  5. Cut out that ‘thank you’ slide at the end.
  6. Find your own presentation style.

You don’t have to try out everything at once. Pick one or two tips and then see if you can follow them.
