Seven rules for a good presentation

  • A presentation is a presentation

    It is not about reading aloud parts of the seminar paper. In a presentation, you have to be more pointed, more clearly structured and provide clear answers for discussion.

  • What is your message

    The central message should be summarized on one slide. In order to substantiate it, one must then allocate the time available exactly.

  • Provide an overview

    Give the audience an overview at the beginning and make sure that the central theme is not lost.

  • Form focal points

    A good structure has a focus - you can also call them corner points, milestones or lighthouses.

  • Use visualisation in a targeted manner

    The most important focal points should be visualised - if possible. Usually you can also tell whether the idea is worthwhile.

  • Make contact with the audience

    Speak to the audience - do not turn away.

  • Preparation

    A good presentation has been given three times before: The first time you check the quality of the individual arguments (persuasiveness?), the second time you check the context (red thread?) and the third time you check that the time limit has been met!
