Cultural Project Delivery Checklist
Here are some general items to target when practicing and delivering your presentation or report…
____ I practiced in front of real people at least twice before the actual presentation ____ The handouts (if required) were legible. The handouts may even have blanks, turning them into Study Sheets ____ I have note cards (color coded or numbered, with large print) that I can follow with ease ____ The note cards follow my key word outline. There are no sentences on the note cards ____ In relation to this topic, I assume that I am the “most expert” person in the room, so I speak with confidence ____ I focus on the audience, rather than the material ____ My highest priority is communicating with the audience ____ I stand straight ____ I use appropriate gestures and facial expressions, adjusting to the communication ____ I speak in a firm voice, and alternate voice tone to reflect the message ____ I introduce myself and my topic when I start ____ I ask for questions, answer questions, or say, “I don’t know.” ____ I glance at a slide or notes, then talk to the audience. I avoid reading the slides or the notes to the audience ____ I test the audience’s reaction before telling jokes. I never tell a joke that would offend anyone ____ I remain polite, if members of the audience criticize me or correct me ____ I make transitions between thoughts and ideas or sections of the topic, rather than jumping from one idea to another ____ If using a slide transition, I use the same transition for every slide. I never use the “Random Transition” function of the software ____ I summarize my talking points, with statements that match the goals that I stated during the introduction to my presentation
