8 Ways to Extend Your Presentations

Beyond Bullet Points

Post the presentation online. Then you can link to your online presentation slides, video and audio files (if you have them).

"How do I establish credibility as a speaker when my age and looks work against me?"

The Eloquent Woman

In addition to these tips for making sure you've written (or are delivering) a worthy intro , in this case, I'd advise using your introduction and bio, if one is printed in advance materials, to prepare the audience. Make sure your photo is included, and if your bio can accurately say something that emphasizes your youthful accomplishment, do it: "Annie Smith is the youngest scientist at LifeMarkBio to be published in all three major journals in the field," for example.

8.09.2010 Interpersonal Communication throughout the World Here again, in the second edition of an interpersonal communication text--the name of which I wont mention since my own books compete with this one--is the claim that the "formal study of interpersonal communication occurs almost exclusively in the United States."

12.26.2010 Communication Strategies: Metacommunication Heres a brief explanation of metacommunication, surely not enough to do this important topic justice--but a start. The prefix meta- can mean a variety of things (Give examples), but as used in communication, philosophy, and psychology, its meaning is best translated as about. Thus, metacommunication is communication about communication, metalanguage is language about language, and a metamessage is a message about a message.

3.08.2011 Alexithymia Most interpersonal communication textbooks list the major emotions, talk about the need to be able to describe what you’re feeling, and provide a variety of terms to describe the basic or primary emotions. It’s part of emotional communication competence. Alexithymia, on the other hand, is a condition in which a person lacks the vocabulary to effectively describe his or her feelings, wants, and desires.
