Even an impromptu presentation can and should have a structure. Build your talk around an introduction, a middle and a conclusion.
The introduction should include:
- Your names and backgrounds and how you found the club
- A brief(!) overview of your idea or technology and its origin
- Your goals or motivations for presenting (to ask for advice,
practice, update on progress, or find investors or mentors)
The middle should include the details that you want to cover. You should expect a lot of questions and comments from the group.
The conclusion should include:
- A brief(!) review of your main points (for the latecomers)
- Your contact information (telephone or email addresses)
And not to be ignored, some pointers on style:
- Be direct, speak up, make eye contact with the audience
- Avoid distracting habits (don't click pens or rattle change)
- Use visual aids generous with large type and illustrations
