Having a structured presentation with good flow in between your main points is important. This helps the audience keep track and helps them understand the overall story you are trying to tell.
A good idea is to try memorise your notes. Constantly looking down means you lose that engagement with your audience.
If you are using slides, make sure your text is the right font, colour and size. Pictures, diagrams or graphs need to big enough to be seen from a distance.
If it is a poster presentation, likewise make sure to use the right colours and have your font and images at a big enough size.
With text, it is key to bullet point. Do not try and put all your information into your slide and simply read off it. The audience will get bored very quickly.
If you’re looking for something new rather than the usual Microsoft Powerpoint, try out Beautiful AI (which takes care of all the formatting for you and has many templates to choose from) or Prezi which enables you to zoom in and out of your presentation to emphasise particular points and is particularly helpful if you are wanting to show a story.
