What question does this book answer?
It is common knowledge that in an ideal academic presentation, you should show your data as a narrative story with good use of slides while actively engaging with the audience! But how do you create a narrative story with academic information? What qualifies as ‘good slides’? And how exactly does one engage with the audience?
This book has been written to answer these very questions! This book will teach what needs to be done in an academic presentation and also how to do it! The readers will learn how to develop an engaging story with academic information and support the story with the help of visual aid.
What approach does this book take?
‘If it is not essential, it is a potential distraction!’
You may have the right information, but it is useless if the audience does not get the message as intended. The core philosophy of essentialism used in this book will enable the presenters to use strategies that will actively draw the attention of the audience while avoiding common presentation practices that are distracting.
This approach is essential for presenters to find the right balance between verbal, non-verbal, and visual elements in their presentation.
