Secrets to a Terrific Technical Talk

Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2022, noon - 1 p.m.

Location: Interfaith Prayer & Reflection Room (Ohio Union 3rd Floor)

Cost: Free

Giving an effective technical or scientific presentation is more than making slides of the figures from your written report and then talking about them! At this seminar, we will discuss the essential differences between giving an oral presentation and writing a document. The secrets are in the stuff you do ahead of time, and in understanding the differences between hearing information and reading it. We will cover how to plan, how to present, and most importantly, how to design your visual aids to get your message across. We will also point out common errors and tell some great horror stories. Finally, we will discuss how to handle the highly stressful question-and-answer period.
