Formal Presentation Tactics I never had the opportunity to give a formal presentation but I would definitely consider issues such as: 1. Researching the audience: It is important to know your audience so that you match your content as per the audience’s need. You also need to be confident and well-versed with the topic you’re going to discuss. 2. Techniques to reduce speaker anxiety: Practicing in front of the mirror or your family and friends will reduce your anxiety. Remain calm. 3. Delivery tips, including nonverbal ones: Body language is important. Standing, walking or moving about with appropriate hand gesture or facial expression is preferred to sitting down or standing still with head down and reading from a prepared speech. 4. Appropriateness of the plan for the type of presentation: You must know your matter ahead of your presentation. If using power point presentation you must know how to use it. Do a demo beforehand. Study the content thoroughly.

He also added humor whenever appropriate and possible. The one hour presentation went very smoothly, though there were no breaks in between we did not realize how time flew. He kept the audience interested throughout the entire presentation....

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
