Delivering a presentation when you can’t be there in person
At last, the big day has arrived. It’s time to give the presentation. “Break
a leg,” as actors say before they go on stage. This chapter explains
how to rehearse your presentation to find out how long it is and how to
show your presentation. You discover some techniques to make your
presentation livelier, including how to draw on slides with a pen or highlighter
and blank out the screen to get the audience’s full attention. The chapter
describes how to handle the speaker notes and print handouts for your
audience. In case you can’t be there in person to deliver your presentation,
this chapter shows you how to create a user-run presentation, a self-running
presentation, a presentation designed to be viewed from a CD, and video of
a presentation.
All about Notes
Notes are strictly for the speaker. The unwashed masses can’t see them.
Don’t hesitate to write notes to yourself when you put together your
presentation. The notes will come in handy when you’re rehearsing and giving your
presentation. They give you ideas for what to say and help you communicate
better. Here are instructions for entering, editing, and printing notes:
Entering a note: To enter a note, start in Normal or Outline view and
enter the note in the Notes pane. If the Notes pane isn’t displayed, click
the Notes button on the Status bar or View tab. Treat the Notes pane
like a page in a word processor. For example, press Enter to start a new
paragraph and press the Tab key to indent text. You can drag the border
above the Notes pane up or down to make the pane larger or smaller.
