Scripting presentations

Where do you start?

Scripting a presentation is similar to the techniques you might use when working on an essay. However, consider these additional points when scripting presentations:

  • Complete your groundwork first. Where is your content coming from? Are you reporting some research or a process you are already familiar with? 
  • Know the key message of your presentation – what is it that you want to say overall?
  • Mindmap around your key message, and build up supporting ideas.
  • Get detailed guidelines or criteria to ensure you are completely clear about what your tutor wants you to do for this presentation.  If you have any doubt, go and ask your tutor for details.
