Points to think about at conferences:
Your audience does not know your texts. SLOW DOWN. Give the background in a bit more detail. It is very hard to follow information that you do not develop.
People are reading their papers extremely quickly. I can barely understand the individual words, much less the concept.
One thought on “Points for Presenters”
So true. Trying to follow a paper read in a low voice at breakneck speed is frustrating. The pop culture conf seemed to have more than usual. Another tip: if you happen to be in a hotel ballroom with high ceilings — with or without a mic, slow down even more and speak clearly. I finally gave up on any sessions held in the Salons and stuck with the smaller conference rooms.
