You have 2 minutesGroup Work • Get into small groups of between 3 and 5 • Each tell the rest of your group about the worst and best presentation you have seen. • Be careful to explain why it was so good/bad You have 10 minutesWhy it is importantYour chance to be noticed • In academia: • more recognition of paper • paper being linked to you • recognition of your abilityYour chance to be noticed • In business • Your chance to differentiate • It is all about salesBefore you startThings to determine • The type of talk you will be expected to give • The composition of the audience • The time allotted for the talk • Expectations for information contentWho is the audience? • Determine the audience • Do not assume too much knowledge • but do not patronise either • Better to be too basic than too difficultTalk is different to written • Listeners have one chance to hear your talk and can't "re-read" when they get confused. • K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid). • Focus on getting one to three key points across. Talk is different to written • Repeat key insights: • Tell them what you're going to tell them (Forecast), • Tell them, • Tell them what you told them (Summary).What do you want to say? • Think of your talk as a sales pitch. • Your presentation does not replace your paperPreparing your talkDo not start on slides • Prepare on paper before going into powerpoint • prepare what you are going to say based on talk outline than write slides • Talk more important than visualTalk outline: Paper presentation • Title, author, affiliation (1 slide) • Forecast (1 slide) • Outline (1 slide) • Background • Motivation and Problem Statement (1-2 slides) • Related Work (0-1 slides) - refer to paper • Methods (1 slide) - refer to paperTalk outline: Paper presentation • Results (4-6 slides) • Main body of talk • Present key results and key insights. • Summary (1 slide) • Conclusion you wish people to draw • Future Work (0-1 slides) • Backup Slides (0-3 slides)Talk outline: Short presentation (5 mins) • Total of no more than 4 slides • Title, author, affiliation (1 slide) • Motivation and Background (1 slide) • Results (1 slide) • Conclusions (1 slide)
