Tips for a Successful Technical Presentation

  • When you move, they look at you. When you stop, they look at the screen. Use this to
    your advantage. Don’t pace randomly, idley or unconsciously.
  • Use Large Font Size, Lucida Console, 14 to 18pt, Bold. Consider this my gift to you. This is the most readable, mono-spaced font out there. Most readable setup for Command Prompts is a Black Background and with the Foreground Text set to Kermit Green
  • Don’t READ your slides. I can read faster than you can talk. Your job as a presenter is to read in between the lines, and provide them structure. Your slides should be treated as your outline
    – they are structure, scaffolding, nothing more.
