Preparing presentations checklist

Preparation for a strong presentation requires you to:


  • Spend a lot of time getting the content of your presentation just right
  • 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
