5 Ways Tech Coaches Can Create Memorable Presentations
- Have a great Title and Description
- Know your audience & tailor your presentation to them and not over their heads.
- Know your own limitations before signing up for presentations. Do you have time? Do you have something valuable to contribute? Is it the same, normal how-to session or is it something more engaging and innovative?
- Be aware of the timeframe and plan accordingly to keep your participants engaged. Lecture/Discussion/Hands-on
- Slides / Visual aids should fit the presentation and complement the content, not be the entertainment. Keep in simple and engaging not over the top.
- Be willing to share with the audience – slides, handouts, something that they are able to take with them for reference or a template for implementation.
- Be confident in what you are doing and in knowing the content you are presenting. Show and demonstrate your experience.
- Be familiar with hardware that you will be using and what is being provided.
