How to Improve your Presentation by Dr. Cindy Waters, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Associate Director for Precollege Programs – ERC-RMB 

Presentations are an inherent part of today's workplace. From sales pitches to why you expect a pay increase this year, your goal is to instruct and persuade others. Have you ever been listening to a presentation and viewed a slide that was so terrible it made you instantly want to walk out of the room? Good people make bad presentations. Why? Sometimes it's because they think making a good one takes too long; other times it's because they don't understand what makes a great presentation.   This seminar will provide some useful tips to improve your presentation.
