Write Slides

Slides are shown to others. A paper was given to the others. So there is no need to know how to write, but rather to know how to show most of it.

The first shows teach his subject to an audience, who was warned about the topic with a conference’s summary. They can then be reworked with questions from the public.

It is necessary for the listener to understand the essential ideas and why they are available to him.

This is why slides are generally presented as follows:
* When and why ? (Introduction)
* How ? (Show)
• Otherwise... (Conclusion)

Slides’s beginning sets up a story, with historical or semantic research. We give to the show a reason.

Then we explain, with our knowledge, in a more or less substantiated way, depending on the time available. We can involve the public, asking them to act, or asking questions.

The time allotted is defined by slides. We must not forget the questions we ask ourselves when we criticize ourselves. We then use his perfectionism.

The conclusion opens to further researchs, summarizing that has been explained. Everything must be clear and precise.

We must always refer to that has just been shown in order to show that is said makes sense objectivly. You have to be precise and creative, while explaining the words, methods and terms about your subject.

Then, choosing examples, demonstrating that is being said, makes it possible to tell to everyone. You have to be able to explain with examples that everyone knows.

Write a plan on cards, with one card per view. This helps to avoid memory loss and negative stress. The more a paper is prepared, the more successful it is.

The shorter is the show, the better it is understood. If the talk is long, it should pick up the listener with the buzzwords.

The more creative or sought-after a presentation, the more attractive it is. A documented show has a sequel for itself. It leads to other paths.

Some communication workshops, culture and expression, allow you to make a presentation, while learning to introduce yourself. There are at the french National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts.

My Notes

Expose a personal project for you, then for others...
