I am attending Jamboree in Southern California the next three days and already have had a great experience.
i had breakfast by myself but as I walked out there was my ProGen mento, Craig Scott. I introduced myself and we got to talking about the characteristics of a great presentation (he is doing a presentation on military history, an area of which he is well known.).
So, here is a few pointers from the expert:
- Craig says he spends about 80 hours preparing for a presentation
- a good way to learn about a topic is to say you will present on a tropic and then spend the time to learn how to do it.
- do not read your presentation
- if you don’t know– you have a choice of saying you don’t know or giving a scenario that has in basis in fact and then declaring that you are giving a possible . Perhaps someone else has any information
- use ppt arrows rather than risk your laser pointer battery dying or being too “busy” with your pointer
- Exorcise ummms and ahhhhs from the presentation
What I have done since the last posting: primarily the SGS Bulletin and the SGS newsletter. Lots more but I will write more later!
