So I’ve been accepted to present at the 2010 RMOUG Conference and I am understandably nervous.
This is my first large presentation I’ve given and I’m thrilled to be doing it. My topic is the power of parallel processing, something I’ve been working heavily in as of late and I feel I have a lot to offer on the subject matter.
I’ve already written and submitted my abstract, now comes the daunting task of putting together a presentation that is beneficial and that everyone can follow,(vs. how my ADHD brain works, running rampant from one aspect of the challenging subject to the next through the database… :))
I definitely want to request some information from others I know who have successfully presented in the past-
How do you know you have the right depth for the audience?
How do you distinguish what to put in your slides and what to keep out?
How much candy and jolt do you consume or for me, maybe not consume before the presentation so you are wired beyond belief?
I’ve been told for a couple years now that I needed to present, publish, the works, but I’m finally taking the leap.
Now we’ll find out in February if I can hack it!
