Presentation Tips & Guidelines

Tips for Presenters

  • Practice and rehearse your presentation before you arrive
  • Be aware of the time allocated to you. The schedule of presentations will normally be emailed to all presenters before the events.
  • Do not read text directly from your research paper. If you don’t plan to use any software tools such as MS PowerPoint or Prezi, please ensure that you have sufficient visual aids or handouts for the audience.
  • Please use appropriate language. The audience will most likely consist of people from different cultures and age groups. It is a good idea to use neutral language and sticking to globally accepted norms and etiquettes when speaking.
