Guidelines For Presenters:
Tips for a Good Presentation:
Whether you are a seasoned presenter or a nervous first-timer, the following tips are intended as a simple guide.
How Long Is the Ideal Presentation?
You have a 25-minute slot allocated in which to present, but your presentation itself should be no longer than 20 minutes. We would suggest aiming for around 15–18 minutes. This will allow ample time for directly engaging with the audience through discussion and questions.
Structuring Your Presentation:
First, make sure you know what you want to say and the points you wish to cover, and keep your presentation clear, simple and concise. Structure it clearly and logically so that both you and your audience know where you are going. Visuals and signposts will help with this, especially if you are using PowerPoint.
Oral Presentation guidelines:

- Each speaker will have 20-25 minutes for presentation. Please plan your talk for 17-19 minutes to allow for introduction and questions. In order to stay in track of time, please ensure that you start and end your presentation on the times indicated in the schedule.
