People always ask me
"Marcello What is your secret to giving a presentation that has won top awards at both AU and RTC"?
the truth is ...
I have no secret....
I just try to improve every year
So here is a preview.....from one of the segments of this series....
Selecting the right examples......
When I present a conference technical presentation I could not just provide any example.
It has to be one that is well thought out or else I will lose the audience. The example has to have (at the least) the following considerations.
- is this relevant to the audience?
- Could they use it or modify it for their use?
- is it to complicated so they do not understand it?
- is it to simple so they already know it?
- is it to "plain" so they think its not interesting?
- could the entire concept be explained in 10 to 12 minutes (this is the huge one and the deciding factor for every example i chose)
what does my "example" or set list look like?...
Here is one example of a set list prep that I did for #AU2015 that received the top rated class and a top speaker award for me
As I said this is just a sample of the
"Preparing for a Conference Technical Presentation"
series to be shown over the next few months so stay tuned!
