Presentations are one way to share your research. You want to ensure your message is clear and that you are confident in presenting your information to others.

Your presentation should let your key points stand out and show that you have expert knowledge, and a clear and succinct message.

This page will help you learn how to communicate your key messages clearly and concisely.
