Tutorial 1: Preparing your Presentation (1 - 1.5 hours)

In this tutorial we go through the process of composing your talk. We begin by looking at how to narrow down a talk title to a subject that you can talk about with passion, before moving on to focus on structure, tone, and persuasive language.

Tutorial 2: Delivering your Presentation (1 - 1.5 hours)

The second tutorial focuses on the delivery of an oral presentation, analysing a wide range of techniques such as use of intonation, stress, pitch, speed changes, and pausing. For each technique, our expert readers provide good and bad examples to get you practicing your own speaking skills.
