What Makes a Good Presentation?

A presenter is usually judged by three things:

1. The way it is delivered:

  • rapport with the audience
  • eye contact
  • loud enough voice
  • variety in the voice
  • relaxed look

2. The way it is organized:

  • concept and support are easy to follow
  • information mixed with interesting examples and stories

3. The way the presenter feels about the topic, the audience, and himself/herself:

  • excitement and passion about the topic
  • confidence
  • positive attitude
  • enthusiasm about the topic
  • interest in the audience
