Academic Writing

I found a wonderful podcast series, Hello PhD.

These are some of the important tips I gathered from one of the podcasts about doing a presentation.

1. Define your audience: Create each piece of content for an “audience of one” and don’t try to be all things to all people.

2. Define the problem: Focus, try to convey one main idea, and support it with every sentence. (Psychographic and demographic)

3. Less is more: Use white space, don’t feel compelled to tell everything you know, and edit yourself ruthlessly.

4. Tell a story: Data is critical, but data only makes sense in the context of a story. Use emotion, story arc, the hero’s journey, etc. to engage your audience.
