Before you give your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, you need to rehearse it. By doing this, you should be comfortable not only with how the presentation looks but also with communicating your message.
- [Tutor] Once you think your presentation … is all put together, … it's a good idea to do some rehearsing. … This is where the presentation view … is really going to come in handy. … Use this as an opportunity … to check out your timings of your builds … and click through everything. … I suggest you talk through the presentation in real time. … Now, you're going to need to try to resist the urge … to stop the presentation. … Rather, keep a pad of paper next to you … and jot down notes about the issues you find. … It's a good idea … to just click through everything in real time … and look at your actual presentation. … Take the time to let each slide load up … and make sure that every animation occurs as you expected … and plays back smoothly. … Also, look for spelling errors on the screen. … Remember, in presentation mode, … suspected spelling errors will not be underlined. … Look to see if anything is missing from your slides. … Remember the last thing you want here … is that you're standing in front of a live audience …
