What comes to mind when you talk about checklists? What kinds of reminder should be done? More specifically if we aim for a presentation / seminar session, of course as a presenter and Event Organizer must have checklist to make sure everything goes well. DoctorSlide summarizes that there are at least 10 checklists that must be realized by each presenter.
Check whether the content is already final or there are some slides left? Check the words again, make sure there are no typo or incorrect data. Presentation content and slides are a reflection of who you are, making sure your content is valuable.
If you use simple animation or advance, make sure that the animation is appropriate and not too long or too fast in terms of duration. Too long kind of animation will create an awkward and bored atmosphere, while too fast kind of animation will make the audience confused and not capture the essence of understanding.
Check the Props/Supporting Aids
If you sell health products for example, do not forget to prepare a product (sample) earlier than expected. The props are also important in attracting the audience to "fall in love" with the topic you describe. Including hardcopy that you print to be shared with the audience must also be ensured that they are printed already and ready to be distributed.
Check Rundown Events
Always check with the committee regarding the latest event schedule. This will make it easier for you to adjust your content and delivery (for example if your presentation session is at the end of the event, you can create some ice-breaking activities / games so that the audience still enthusiast following your session even though they are tired already with the series of events).
Check Presentation Tools
Always provide the simple presentation tools you need, for example pointers or VGA / HDMI cables in your bag.
Dress Code check
Don't get the wrong costume! Make sure once again about the invitation and theme of the session and dress a suitable one.
Get to know your audience from the start by checking the layout settings of the room. Whether it's set to be classroom layout or other layout. This will help you to pick a suitable delivery method to the audience according to the distance to reach them.
Take vitamins if needed and take care of your health. If you are not feeling well, then you can start looking for references / substitutes for yourself.
Feedback is one of the best indicators to determine whether your presentation session is useful or not. At the same time it can be a good parameter for evaluating ourselves as a whole.
Number of Audiences
Make sure you check the number of audiences up to D-1 closing of registration. The amount of audience will affects you preparation (for example merchandise, the number of printouts that must be prepared enough). Then after you do these quick 10 checklist, you are pretty sure ready to rock the presentation session!
