REBEL EM has primarily been a clinical blog focusing on critical appraisal of research, but now we are proud to introduce REBEL Prez, in an effort to improve presentations. If you are giving presentations at any level, delivering a great talk is an essential part of cutting down knowledge translation time. Many would agree that lecture is not the ideal way to deliver information effectively, but for the sake of argument lets just assume that lecture is ubiquitous and not going anywhere. One of my very good friends, Ross Fisher, states that every great talk has three core components: the story, the supportive media, and the delivery. All three components are equally important for impactful presentations, therefore, it is important to improve our skills to optimize presentations by focusing on these three components of presentation design:
- The Preparation for Presentations
- The Design of Presentations
- The Delivery of Presentations
From time to time we will post some presentation pearls on the blog to help raise the bar of presentation delivery.
