    Tut, tut! Now you know the answer to that one.
    Has to be your ideas, emphasising what you believe to be important.
    If you go for this, have a back-up plan in case technology isn't compatible/doesn't work etc.

  2. Thank you..
    I meant kind of technical tips...like..making points in threes etc....

    [​IMG] That's what we teach for a good speech isn't it? And if it was good enough for Churchill. . . . . !
    Clear points and summarise them at the end.
    Clear diction, (slow your delivery down slightly)
    Make eye contact and smile occasionally, don't just deliver the presentation like an automaton (not that you would).

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Seminars. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
    I shall be doing the Win That Teaching Job seminar on Saturday February 25th

    They do say 'like buses. . . 2 and 'things come in threes', so perhaps that 3rd one is winging it's way to you as we speak.
    Don't forget to check I've added you to the list of people who have interview next week on the

    Interviews reminders thread sometime on Sunday.
