THIS GUIDE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. BELOW ARE SOME GUIDELINES, TIPS AND ADVICE TO FOLLOW IN PREPARATION FOR A SUCCESSFUL PRESENTATION AT ANNUAL SME ARIZONA CONFERENCE. YOU CAN ALSO DOWNLOAD A COPY OF THESE PRESENTATION GUIDELINES.
TAILOR YOUR PRESENTATION TO THE AUDIENCE
For example, you would not use the same style when presenting to a group of elementary students and to a board of trustees. Don’t talk down to your listeners. Try to empathize with the audience’s areas of interest and their specific concerns whenever possible.
If your paper is prepared only for the Preprint USB—and you are not requesting peer review, follow the preprint format.
