  • If in doubt, wear a jacket & tie (you can always take it off if less formal vibe)
  • ID Conference: come as you are!
  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!

  • If new venue, try to arrive 30 min ahead of time
  • Insist (politely) on using your own machine (unless you know the venue)
  • Always have backup on USB (and cloud?)
  • If Mac… bring your LCD dongle!
  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • BODY LANGUAGE
  • Face the audience (not the screen)
  • Smiles are golden
  • Connect with audience by talking to individuals, one point at a time
  • Hands out of pockets!
  • A little movement is just fine
  • Ask questions with raised palm
  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • PREPARATION
  • KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE!
  • Who are they?
  • What’s their agenda?
  • What do they (not) want to hear?
  • An Inconvenient tell them up front… and give f/u later! Truth? Xuan Qin, PhD tell them up front… and give f/u later! Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • PREPARATION
  • KNOW YOUR SLIDES!
  • NO substitute for rehearsal
  • Printouts may help you a little… do not inspire confidence in audience
  • Focus on the “transitions”
  • Use “presenter” view on ppt
  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • PREPARATION
  • KNOW YOUR STUFF!
  • What will they ask? Consider building a couple hidden slides to answer likely questions
  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • TOUGH QUESTIONS
  • Anticipate them
  • Circumlocutive answers are OK… but keep them quick, finish with admission you don’t know, pitch it back (politely) to the asker

  • ORGANIZATION
  • Tried & TRUE!

  • PACING
  • Rough guide: About one slide per minute… Caveat: I always double this!
  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • HUMOR
  • Again, KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE!
  • Ribald humor will always insult someone
  • May put them (and you) at ease to start… but be prepared to bomb!
  • Reasonable to add into talk periodically… self-deprecation always a winner
  • Newer, Fancier, Pricier ≠ Better! tell them up front… and give f/u later! Linezolid TMP/SMX Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!

  • Great to “put a face on it”
  • “Worth a thousand words…”
  • Also potentially distracting (think about fournier’s photos yesterday…)
  • Credit images diligently
  • Consider HIPAA issues
  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • ANIMATIONS

  • Speaking Pearls (In General) tell them up front… and give f/u later!
  • FONTS & BACKGROUNDS

  • Fussy backgrounds are distracting
  • MORE CONTRAST IS BETTER (to a point)!
