  • I think one thing that might be relevant, depending on the presentation, to send materials beforehand or create some sort of takeaway. Whether that be a handout, a quiz, etc; it’s something to engage the audience and giving them something to take home means they will remember the presentation.

  • For me, one of the more frustrating parts of a group presentation are where people stand during the presentation. I’ve been part of several group presentations that have way too many people that are part of the PowerPoint, and end up standing in front of the screen and block out very valuable information. Going to the room, or a similar room, can help ensure that you place people who are not at the podium so they do not block out the screen. This can also make sure that there are no issues when people change hands at the podium.
