Presentations skills: How not to bore your audience to death

Presenter: Kathy Oliver, International Brain Tumour Alliance

The following presentation held at the WECAN Academy 2019 will help you to understand:

  • key elements of presentation skills of patient advocates
  • the power of storytelling – and not to fall victim of “death by powerpoint”
  • how to connect stories and evidence/facts
  • the role of language and non-verbals
  • the role of visuals – no “power-Word on PPT”, use of illustrations, good and bad colours
  • having absolute clarity around what they want to achieve, and building a call to action
  • good timing – not more than 1 slide per minute, no “I will flick through this quickly” – nothing is worse than being overtime
  • typical mistakes that make presentations boring and annoying
