Effective presentations achieve their objectives and usually bring some benefit and learning to all the people involved in them, whether presenters, audience or tutors. They will also earn good marks if they are assessed.

2 Improving your individual performance Developing your self-confidence when presenting Many students feel highly nervous about undertaking class presentations, especially when there is a mark attached. This is very understandable. It is all very well for tutors to say things like ‘Well, there is no pressure on you’, ‘You’ll do fine on the day’, or ‘Don’t worry, we will be doing it in quite an informal way’. However, tutors have to stand up and present regularly each week. They are highly practised and usually fairly self-confident as a result.

4 Keep breathing. Practise taking several deep breaths from the bottom of the lungs before you start speaking AND continue to take breaths throughout your presentation. Some people simply forget to breathe during their presentation! 5 Ensure that your neck is comfortable. If your neck feels stiff, gently relax it. You may want to search out a book on specific neck exercises. If not, gently rub your neck with your hands to warm it. Stand tall; allow your spine and neck to lengthen slightly. Relax your shoulder blades and then roll them forwards.
