How to Give a Lousy Presentation: BusinessWeek


9. Don’t bother with a backup plan. If you need a live Internet connection to demo a site, don’t bother making a screen shot of the site in case the connection doesn’t work. That way, you’ll be at a complete loss for words when the connection fails.

10. Don’t practice. At all. Practicing a presentation out loud takes work and will make you look far too polished. Just wing it.

Good check list – points 9 and 10 in this BusinessWeek piece struck a chord

  1. 2 great points.

    I’d also add check the quality of the wi-fi connection if that is what’s on offer. Once all the delegates enter the room the bandwidth can be gone in a flash!
