Speaker Tips

Always have a backup plan. Chromebook wasn't working right. Luckily, I had a backup. Oh, and make sure to have filler when switching out tech. In my case, I sang Neil Diamond.

  • Present on something that you "OWN"! Something you have done, led, experienced/ It will make the presentation STRESS FREE!
  • Share all your resources; we are all on the same team.

Be open and write down everything!

Be open to new ideas.
Write everything down when you hear it! (otherwise you forget it after hearing 5 more great ideas)

Pro Tips

1. Always download your presentation just incase the wifi fails you!
2. Sessions that allow for audience participation are (almost) always better than those that don't.
3. Keep it fun-- play some music!

Be confident! Fake it if you have to. Interact with the audience. Add humor!

Presenting at CUE is a great opportunity to grow professionally and stretch yourself. Prepare, add humor, interact with your audience and be confident. You got here because you've done something right along the way.

Relax, share, and provide time to let participants learn by doing not just listening to you.

Have a back up plan...

Always test your tech before your session while you are on location, but have a back up plan in case there are wifi issues or any problems with your devices or the audio or projector.  Be prepared and then be happy if nothing goes wrong!

Prep for a presentation

  1. Preload videos with an uninterrupted network: don't rely on instant access during your presentation
  2. Have fun: you're there to share and learn from others, enjoy the experience
  3. Stay student or stakeholder focused: show how what you know worked

Tips for presenting: Breathe deeply, smile, and don't worry about what you don't know.

Speaking before a group is always a little nerve-wrecking. If you don't get nervous you may not be challenging yourself to tell folks about new and challenging things. Biggest things I think I like to see as an audience member: Be enthusiastic, don't sweat the small stuff, be open to questions and discussion, don't pretend to know everything - you don't, and we (the audience) know it. If you have a passion and fire about what you're presenting, that attitude will be infectious!

Presentation tips

1. Arrive early to check connections, sound, etc.
2. Speak more slowly, clearly, loudly than normal speech.
3. Create as much interactivity as possible (build in time for questions).
4. Relax! You got this....
