Analysis of Presentations

Getting ready on moving on to our next phase of the cookbook prototype, we are to present out ideas to a group of people. At this time, it is important to display the information at the best present the information.

The pace of her presentation was well kept. When she was talking about an area or subject that people weren't aware of (such as the county) she shows where it is, as well as familiar locations around it. Her presentation is not only a story but meets important bullet points along the speech/presentation.


I Do Declare
Holy shit, finally! An article that notes that blemishes during a speech are human. They key is the design behind something. Basically from this article I gathered that a presentation should be precise. The viewers only know what you're telling and showing them. When you say something in a paragraph, that could be said in a sentence, that's waisting your time to present (assuming there is an allotted time slot to present) and the viewers time for questions and comments. Showing visuals is key and can be a lot quicker to keep the image or idea stuck in the viewers mind.

Here are the main points in the reading that should be the "golden rules" of presentations.

1. Show invisibles.
2. Design to your strengths.
3. Outwit.
4. Digress.
5. Edit.
6. Comic relief.
7. Literary devices work.
8. Advocate the audience.
9. Reading is chancy.
10. The end shouldn't be endured.

Be Selfish
Knowing your audience –
is very important; this is an important key communicating anything.

Hierarchy –
keeps key points in the audiences mind.

Visually engage your audience –
so they don't fall asleep or keep looking at their watches or texting on their iPhones.

Use your audience/capture feedback and reflect –
Let's all learn from one another by keeping the presentations precise and concentrated so there is time at the end for comments or questions for clarification.
