Helpful Tips for Presenters
- Always come prepared – make sure you have all materials, including appropriate technology, set up and ready to go.
- Know what you’re going to say – Prep ahead of time, if needed practice at home and create note-cards to help you carry your message to the audience.
- “Keeps Your Eyes On the Prize” – Your eyes are your most powerful ally, use them. Look out at your audience with pride and confidence in yourself, everyone is there for you, and wants to listen, so focus on them and make that connection visually.
- Dress intentionally – You are presenting your work in front of an audience of students from other schools, teachers, university professors, and human rights advocates. You want to dress in a manner that is meant to convey a message about who you are and what your project is about.
- Ethos, Pathos, Logos – Work to convince your audience that you know what you’re talking about and they should listen to you. Make your argument through an appeal of emotion. Draw on a sense of logic and reasoning to bring your presentation together.
- Keep Calm and Carry On – You can do this, you have worked so hard on your project. Have confidence, smile when you come in the room, and showcase your work with great pride…YOU GOT THIS!!!
