Chapter 23. Presenting a Technical Paper... > General Hints for Success:

General Hints for Success:

  1. Complete the Technical Presentation Check List provided at the end of this section.

  2. Plan breaks. Especially after lunch, avoid this time slot if you can. Do not speak for more than one hour without a 5–10 minute break.

  3. Rehearse your presentation at least twice. Have a colleague listen to you and throw some questions at you so you can practice answers to questions you might get.

  4. Arrive early, check out the room and make sure the AV equipment is in proper working order.

  5. Find out if the signals are given or plan a way to watch the time so you stay on schedule.

  6. Make sure you have enough handouts for the entire audience and then add 10%, just in case your talk is more popular than you thought it might be.

  7. Have fun!
