It doesn’t help to get angry with the projector or the computer if nothing works. Always check all the equipment out in advance. And be ready to deliver a presentation without visual aids!
Has your presentation ever been ruined because the equipment failed to work properly?
You couldn’t connect your PC to the projector? The image resolution was complete rubbish? Or there was no access to the Internet?
And there’s you standing in front of an audience who are all thinking “why on earth didn’t they check this out before?”
So always make a point of checking everything in advance.
Check that your computer is compatible with the projector.
Make sure the remote “clicker” and the laser pointer work properly.
If you need an Internet connection, check that you can access it and that it’s fast enough for you.
Check that the slides can easily be seen by everyone in the room. (Excuse me, over there, can you see ok? Thanks.
And always have a backup plan. Because if the technology lets you down, you must be prepared to deliver a good presentation without visual aids!
No, there’s no need for that … just trust in yourself and you report with the audience.
