Nice presentation on making good presentations. Emphasizes the need for a good story behind the presentation.
Most academics seem to think that they just need to push the information out to the audience and that these types of presentations are for business or just “non-scientists”. This is certainly far from the truth. You want people to remember your presentation and, in fact, remember you (conferences are more about networking than exchanging ideas). I’m sure that you remember good speakers much better than poor ones…which do you want to be?
