How to Give an Effective Presentation:
Pitching Your Invention
The presentation will be an interactive session on presentation techniques ranging from the basics (don't mumble, face the audience, don't read the slides), to PowerPoint tips, to talk organization. These techniques are of use in any presentation, but the emphasis will be on fund raising (investor) presentations. And while this will not be Shark Tank, it will involve audience interaction, giving you a chance to practice what I preach.
MEETING SCEHDULE : 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Meeting starts promptly at 6:30, so please arrive on time.
- INTRODUCTIONS: Each member (who wants to) can get up and say just a few words about themselves, what they're working on, what skills they have to share with other members, what help they might need from other members. This is an excellent opportunity to start networking with other members.
- OPEN DISCUSSION / NETWORKING: Mix and mingle and talk about anything the members may be interested in.
