To present or not to present

Fellow speaker,

Speech coach Jeremy Donovan suggests there are times for you to use presentation software in your speech and times for you not to use presentation software, depending on the purpose of your speech:
  • Inspire - no presentation software
  • Document firsthand images - use the actual images (not internet-chosen substitutes) and presentation software
  • Inform or persuade - use presentation software as necessary to get your points across (e.g., if you want to inform your audience about your data, use some form of a graph)
About presenting,
