Authentic and HumbleBe yourself and express your true passion. Be humble. Try to create one-on-one conversation with everyone. Use jargon-free (i.e., 6 grade level) language packaged into short clear sentences. Share expertise, not ego. Do not self-promote.
Filler WordsThese are words like ‘umm,’ ‘ahh,’ ‘you know,’ ‘I mean,’ ‘so…,’ ‘actually,’ ‘like,’ ‘sort of,’ ‘kind of,’ etc. People use these words to fill in uncomfortable silence. Avoid using these express uncertainty, immaturity, and unpreparedness.

The best slides is ironically no slide at all. If you need slides, however, make it simple. See Ken Robinson and Simon Sinek presentation, as an example.
Three Slide Design Approaches
- Golden method: Use fill page picture. Fill the page with high-resolution copyrighted picture. Try to match the resolution of your pictures with that of the projector.
- Takahashi method: Make giant texts and make the slide clean. The best is to use one sentence per page. Use 7 by 7, i.e., no more than 7 bullets per slide and no more than 7 words per bullet.
- Lessig method: The combination of the above two.
"Less is more. Be generous with whitespace.”
