You will be utilizing prezi as your presentation tool. This is a user-friendly, web-based presentation tool that you will find will bring your presentation to new levels of excellence. It is recommended that your presentation be no MORE than 5 slides due to the tight time constraints (see time limit).
This is an example of a Prezi I created and used for a 90-minute workshop on Time Management. What you don't want is people reading a large amounts of text while you are talking!
This presentation will last 1.5 minutes. There will be a timekeeper and once it is indicated that your time has ended, you MUST immediately wrap up and end the presentation professionally. It is HIGHLY recommended that you rehearse your presentation several times and make adjustments for the time allotted. Index cards are highly encouraged! Your visual should NOT BE TEXT HEAVY - the bulk of information should be shared verbally.
