The Best Tips for Using Presentation Notes
programs > skill development modules > presentation skills > notes


  • Check ListDo not read your presentation directly from a script. Use notes so you’re not tempted to read it word-for-word.

  • Highlight your notes to help you find key passages easily.

  • If using full sheets of paper, don’t write on the bottom third of the page. You’ll be looking too far down to read it and the audience will be looking at the top of your head.

  • If using note cards, be sure to write large enough to read. Many meeting locations have lower lighting at the podium.

  • Number the pages of your notes. If you drop them, you’ll be able to get them back in order more easily.

  • Even if you memorise your presentation, have a set of notes available in case you forget or get nervous.

  • Memorise the opening and closing of your presentation. This lets you present those elements with authority and confidence.

  • Write down hints on your notes to remind yourself to pause or slow down.

  • Use your visual aids for notes.. On flipchart pages, you also can write notes in pencil that are invisible to the audience.

  • Rehearse with your notes so that you develop a feel for where the segments are on the pages or cards. This makes it easier to find the information when you glance down at your notes during the presentation.
