1) Know your audience
It is always a good idea to structure your talk so that anyone in the audience can understand
what you are presenting. Complexity is not a necessity, it is an annoyance.
Understand your purpose. This way you can get the point of your talk across appropriately and affectively by catering to your specific audience.
2) Be organised
Practice your talk enough so that you have flow, but no so much that you have the entire talk memorised.
Memorising your talk will bore you and your audience, as it will be monotonous.
4) Be professional
Design: A General Guideline
Regardless of whether you choose a PowerPoint presentation or transparencies to deliver your talk,
here are some general guidelines to keep in mind when designing your presentation.
1) Title (include authors and affiliations)
2) Introduction (Background, Purpose, Hypothesis)
3) Method (A brief introduction to the methodology without too much technical Jargon)
4) Results (Use graphs/charts/table, provide an extra slide/transparency with a summary of the results, explain the results)
5) Conclusions/Discussion (Clear explanation of the results, clinical implications)
6) Future work (Provide information on where the project is headed)
