Uhms and Bunny Hands: Tips for Improving Your Presentation Skills (DataGrillen 2019)

  1. 1. Uhms and Bunny Hands: Tips for Improving Your Presentation Skills Cathrine Wilhelmsen DataGrillen · June 21st 2019
  2. 2. © 2019 Cathrine Wilhelmsen (hi@cathrinew.net) Session Description Are you considering becoming a speaker, but feel nervous about getting on stage for the first time? Have you already presented a few sessions and want advice on how to improve? Do you learn more from seeing examples of what you should NOT do during a presentation instead of reading a list of bullet points on how to become a better speaker? Don't worry! I have made plenty of presentation mistakes over the years so you won't have to :) In this session, we will go through common presentation mistakes and how you can avoid them, as well as how you can prepare for those dreaded worst-case scenarios. Don't let those "uhms" and "uhhs" dominate your presentation, help the audience focus on the key message you're delivering instead of making them read a wall of text in your slides, recover gracefully from any demo failures, and stop distracting your attendees with floppy bunny hands. All it takes is a little preparation and practice. You can do this!
