Introduction
Making good presentation is an essential skill that is broadly used during business and academic scenarios. Making a presentation tends out to be a clear way to express one’s ideas, information and knowledge that he/she wants to communicate with others. The essay will present some guidance for making a good presentation.

Before you present
Firstly, the presenter should have a clear idea about the main topic and the core ideas he/she going to present, in other word, the aim of the presentation should be thoroughly understood. And the type of the presentation should be determined for fitting the scenario better (conference paper presentation, project presentation,job talk etc.) Then the presenter should collect the necessary background information of the audiences so that the presenter can have a clear view about how many terminologies he/she going to use and how deep he/she going to dig in certain specific areas.

What you want to present
Using PowerPoint is suggested because it is considered to be a common way to make presentation. Graphs, pictures and charts can be used in the ppt so that more information can be presented in a simply and clear way, but the volume should be sparing and the result should be effective. Furthermore, the ppt slides should be put in certain logical orders that audiences can understand the ideas better and the presenter will find it is easier to present orally. The decoration of the ppt slides is needed and how much of them depend on the type of the presentation. If it is a business project, the decoration is supposed to be simple and professional. Otherwise, if the presentation is for academic use, it might be supposed to be interesting and informative so that the students’ attention can be grasped. And the main ideas of the presentation should be clearly pointed out in order to give audiences a direction for which area the presenter going to step in. After that, the ppt slides should have certain structure. Subtitles, bullet points and bolds should be used in the literature that logical clue is formed.

How you present
One of the most essential aspects of the presenting is how the presenter behaves. The style presenter should have depends on the specific context. If it is a formal business scenario, the presenter should be serious and behave formally, the oral content should be brief and straightforward. On the other hand, if it is in a secondary school teaching scenario, the atmosphere is supposed to be more relaxing and more interaction can be involved. However, being relaxing is crucial so that the presenter can speak clearly and the behaviour during the presentation can be appropriate. Eye contact is very important in any presentation because presenters do want to engage the audiences. Appropriate dressing style is needed to some extent in certain formal scenarios and for other cases, the dressing needn’t to be too professional. Otherwise, timing is vital for a presenter. Good timing shows not only presenter’s ability to control the time, but also shows the underlying self-discipline capacity the presenter has, it can potentially influence the audiences’ perception towards the presenter. Moreover, illustration should be involved when explaining the core concepts in the presentation. And the 1

presenters need to be creative so that they won’t be the slaves of ppt slides. Then, skipping slides may occur due to bad timing, the presenters should be always ready to speed up by skipping some pages.

To whom you present
Presenters should always be sensitive to the audiences. Understanding audiences’ background can be helpful for the preparation. Certain techniques should be used to get audience attentions (verbal, behavioural etc.) Presenters should always promote audiences to be inquisitive to the presentation and the main ideas within the presentation. Finally, interaction may be engaged in presentation to some extent according to the scenario. Interaction can get more attention from the audiences so that become more effectively in terms of showing the main idea, but interaction can be time-consuming and the presenter should make sure he/she can control it.

How to improve your presentation
Practice is the key factor to ensure the presentation to succeed. Practicing the presentation beforehand has 3 stages: self-practice, practicing with friends and practicing in front of a webcam. Practice with one’s self is the first stage that requires the presenter to be familiar with the whole content of the presentation. Then the presenter should practice with friends so that they can understand how to interact with the audiences. Finally, practicing with a webcam can give the presenter the clear vision about the facial expression of his/herself.

Conclusion
Overall, making good presentation is all about preparation, proper behaviour, audience knowledge and practice.
