We all need to present frequently and the more you progress with your career the more important the presentations become. Messing these presentations up – especially in front of those responsible for your next promotion – will lead to bad career outcomes.

In today’s episode, Benjamin and I reviewed 9 mistakes we often see during presentations. We’ll talk about:
  • Start with an introduction of yourself 
  • Wordy slides 
  • Monotonous 
  • Not speaking to the audience 
  • Hiding on stage
  • Reading from the slides 
  • Not creating emotions 
  • Too much content 
  • Bad ending

Join The Effective Statistician LinkedIn group

I want to help the community of statisticians, data scientists, programmers and other quantitative scientists to be more influential, innovative, and effective. I believe that as a community we can help our research, our regulatory and payer systems, and ultimately physicians and patients take better decisions based on better evidence.

I work to achieve a future in which everyone can access the right evidence in the right format at the right time to make sound decisions.

When my kids are sick, I want to have good evidence to discuss with the physician about the different therapy choices.

When my mother is sick, I want her to understand the evidence and being able to understand it.

When I get sick, I want to find evidence that I can trust and that helps me to have meaningful discussions with my healthcare professionals.

I want to live in a world, where the media reports correctly about medical evidence and in which society distinguishes between fake evidence and real evidence.

Let’s work together to achieve this.
