Presentation Guidelines

Before you jump to the links, here are some guidelines to keep in mind as you craft your presentation:

  • Have fun. Take risks. Don’t be afraid to try something new. You are among friends.
  • Include at least one interactive component in your presentation. What more can you add to the attendees’ experience?
  • It is strongly recommended that you provide a takeaway for your audience, and it can be anything from a white paper to an info-graphic to a follow-up worklist or reading list (your slides don’t count as a takeaway). 
  • Use the best research and reporting practices. Openly cite any sources.

Inspiration and wisdom:

Not every presentation aligns with an unconventional format, but all presenters can learn from the success of the wildly-popular TED.com presentation format. Here is an interesting link to help you learn from the principles behind this model.
