  • Allocate specific and clearly defined roles for each group member;
  • Prepare your slides and notes well in advance;
  • Collaborate with your group mates on the appearance of your slides;
  • Learn your role and content;
  • Practise each section until you know it and it is the correct length;
  • Rehearse in front of people (with the other members if you are in a group);
  • Arrive early on the day and make sure all equipment is set up and running;
  • If there is time, do a rehearsal with the equipment set up on the day.
