Poster Presentation For The First Time

October 15, 2016

Back to September, I've presented the poster in Genetic class which you can see here and that was the very first time I gave a poster presentation. The entire presentation was about Paroxysmal Noctural Hemogloburina, a rare and life-threatening diseases of the blood that occur when we are sleeping and characterized by destruction of red blood cells.

Before the presentation, I was nervous but that's a good thing because if you are not nervous about something that you are about to do, you probably don't care very much. So, I spent a half hour to practice my presentation and even a few moments right before the presentation. I'm just afraid about the questions that might ask from the judges since we didn't have much time to do the further research. But what added to my anxiety is the fact that one of the judges was from other university. However, everything went well as we planned and I indeed very much enjoyed.

Here's the part of our poster that we did with hard work to make sure it will attract the judges to come over and have a look at our poster :-


To me, giving a presentation is all about sharing knowledge. So, I'm always want to make sure that I make the information as accessible as possible to the audiences. Overall, the biggest thanks to my teammates because you did all of this work incredible.

7 simple tips to help you giving amazing presentations that i currently use and i hope this was helpful! ♥♥ 
1. Practice beforehand in front of a mirror with a recorder or in front of a friend.
2. Smile, make eye contact, stand up straight, move around a bit and don't hide behind your laptop. These to show your confident.
3. Have brief notes on postcard sized cards and have a handout that the audience can take away afterwards to make its interesting!
4. Speak clearly, confidently, concisely, not too fast and use everyday language. Avoid to say aaaa mmmm because this will deduct your marks.
5. Keep your slide clean and simple. Have the points only on each slide and speak out the explanation. Use charts, diagrams and pictures or cartoons because audiences love to see pictures.
6. Get your audiences involved by asking and encouraging questions.
7. It's normal to be a bit nervous thus this helps make you more energized. Preparation and practice will reduce nerves!
