Presenters Guide

Main Points

  1. This is an event for the public, please keep it light (ie. non technical) and relevant.
  2. Have lots of “how to’s” and lifestyle suggestions. Create value.

Operations: Webinar

  1. You will be emailed an invitation to join your live webinar (to do the recording) as a panelist and we will promote you to presenter when you’re on.
  2. We have the capacity to share your webcam and will do this as well as show your slides.
  3. For your presentation you play your slides on your computer, so we see what you’re seeing and hear what you’re saying.
  4. We share your whole screen, so unfortunately we cannot use Presenter or Notes view.

Operations: Slides

  1. We use Dropbox to share all materials to:
    1. Ensure single versioning of files. Single versioning of your slide deck in Dropbox avoids mix ups with versions.
    2. It also keeps back ups of all versions for 30 days.
  2. Can you put your Keynote or PowerPoint slide deck into your folder in Dropbox, which you will be invited to join. No need to email any presentation notes.
  3. When your slide deck is final, we will make the slides into notes for the delegates. These are PDFs with a header page, 6 slides per page.
  4. Slides need to be in well ahead of the presentations to enable time to schedule the production of the delegate’s notes.
  5. All presentation notes, handouts and additional materials are loaded onto a web page where all of the videos and audio recordings are also accessible for the delegates.

Presentation Content

  1. High utility. 99% of all questions after a seminar are practical… how to questions.
  2. Pictures say a thousand words. Please use low res graphics that look great and convey a message.
  3. Summary tables or diagrams are very helpful for delegates.
  4. Each slide has an answer to the question ‘so what’?

Slide suggestions

  1. Use meaningful slide headings that summarise the point of the slide
  2. The number of slides is irrelevant. A slide may take 2 minutes or 20 minutes.
  3. Reduce word count per slide as much as possible. And then reduce it a bit more.
  4. Limit As and ABVNs. Acronyms and Abbreviations can cause confusion
  5. Feel free to add slides to your slide deck that you don’t present. These will be included in the delegate’s notes, but can be hidden in the presentation.
  6. Section slides help attendees see where you are up to
  7. Bullet points are very useful.
