10 Seminar presentation techniques

Here are ten presentation techniques that can improve your final year seminar or project presentation.

#1. Practice
Practice is the most important word here, practice your presentation at least 7 times in front of a mirror if you are a first time presenter.

#2. Eye Contact
Have eye contact with the audience while presenting.

#3. Consider your audience, present for them
While preparing for presentation keep in mind about you the state of your audience.

#4. Include interesting points
Try including interesting points they like. For example if your topic needs to include calculus, do not present it for the entire duration of your seminar, quickly cover it and get ahead.

#5 Example images, Videos
Provide a few examples related to your topic. Display videos (you can get many, from you tube) and include images. Hoe ever keep it short and simple

#6 Voice modulation
Pay attention to your voice. It should keep on modulating depending up on words. Maintaining the same pitch will make it boredom.

#7. Be in touch
If you are reading from a paper, make sure that you keep your eye contact with the audience in between.

# 8. Prepare cue cards
Cue cards are cards with words written on them that help actors and speakers remember what they have to say. This helps you to remember your words and confidence.

#9. Design your slides intelligently.
Dont put many texts on your slide. Avoid putting unnecessary images that you wont discuss. Also avoid reading from the slides. Make sure your audience reads your text first before you.

#10. Make it interactive
Make your presentation a two way communication, ask questions to your audience, be prepared to answer their questions.
