Presentation Practice Steps - Instagram Post

Original Instagram Post

For a Keynote practice, I load the slides up on the machine I’m going to use. Make sure my clicker works, and that the slides are up to date. Then talk through the presentation as though I were presenting it to check for style, flow and timing.

For a workshop I need to make sure it has flexibility because it has to flex with the group and could go in a completely different direction so I: make sure I know what is covered in the slides, make sure the slides are up to date and work on my machine, expand the mindmap to cover the content and print that out as my ‘overview’ also build a list of resources that I might want to use for adhoc explanations etc.

For the tutorial, I need to make sure the slides work, high level talk through of the talky bits, assess timing, make sure all links works, make sure the exercises work and instructions are correct. I’ll do a proper ‘talky’ practice once I know the basics are in place.

I won’t record any of these because it is particularly noisy outside today and I still have some ‘recording’ practice time available for the Keynote and Tutorial over the next few days.
