Thoughts and Plans for the Oral Presentation

My first thought is 'Oh heavens, I hate public speaking!'

As a performer, people assume I like being the centre of attention, and when I was actually performing, being on stage, being a character, yes of course. If you're on stage and you're not the focus of everyone's attention, you're doing your job wrong!

However, presentations; speaking up as myself, is a whole different kettle of fish. I don't like it and I'm not looking forward to it. So, my plan is to make a really, really good presentation, so that I can overcome my nerves.

I am using PowerPoint, as I am already familiar with this program, and I am compiling a combination of the information from the inquiry, the appendices and my favourite quotes.

I will bring with me the hard-copy of my artefact, which still has a little more work to do on it, but I am having fun experimenting and learning new craft skills!

How is everyone else getting on planning the oral presentation??


  1. Hi Dani,
    As my artefact was shown through a movie-style format using an online program, I am finding it hard to create something which doesn't replicate that. I too am using powerpoint as I think this would be the easiest and simplest way to demonstrate my inquiry. As my artefact was presented in a 'fun' and slightly more experimental way, I am trying to make this a more formal presentation.

    Good luck with yours! Your artefact looks great! x
