Physical Link: Getting Comfortable Using Visual Aids
This was speech number 8 for me. Getting comfortable using visual aids was the main goal of the speech. I think it went pretty well considering this was my first time, but as you know there has to be a first for everything. I was able to demonstrate my points and explain my points very easily. The hard part for me was having a good friend of mine who is so much more accomplished; evaluate me.
Things I could have improved on include:
- Lighter background – I had used black
- My font color compensated for the dark background, but needed to be larger
- Some of my PowerPoint slides were a little heavy with words
- Could have used pictures to demonstrate some my points
Unrelated to the visual part of the presentation, I had multiple mini topics that could have been done as individual speeches. I think I understand this point and may even rewrite these mini-topics into new speeches.
All and all, I accomplished the one speech that really scared me. I was worried about coordinating my slides with my speech. My nervousness was getting the better of me at the beginning, but by the time I got to the front, I was okay with everything. I think I will tweak my presentation and give it at another time.
