How to ...

... do a good presentation: The three most important rules

  • Your prime target is your audience
  • Visualize! The slides are the visual support of your talk
  • Tell a story

... come up with good questions

  • Take out paper and pen
  • Listen and write down points you are interested in, do not understand and/or want more details about
  • Be self confident

... be relaxed while giving your presentation

  • Sorry, there is no real help (good preparation is key, though)

And the one thing NOT to do

  • DO NOT COPY
  • You will be failed for plagiarism
