Recorded Presentation

My main problem with presenting information is that I either nervously speak too fast or too slow. I also when my place I use words like “em and uh”  and I I fell like this is very unprofessional. After speaking to my supervisor I am think I am going to pre record my presentation so I can make it as professional as I can, as I think that I have to much to gamble if my presentation is of a poor standard because of my nerves of talking in front of people.


Conclusions

I am going to use Microsoft Power Point for creating my presentation. I have chosen this as I am wanting to smoothly add audio and potentially video and I think this is the best option as i will allow to add audio with ease. I am also going to design my presentation around the information received from the Design Shack and Garr Reynolds websites. I am going to make a simple and clear presentation. I plan to achieve this with minimal text on the screen and a clear font. I plan to also create my own template so that I can create a constant personal theme through out my work. I am also going to have a go at pre recording my presentation and showing it as a video. If this doesn’t  go as smooth as I would like I will present my presentation on the day.
