Presenting Tips
Be practical - Offer content that is proven and based on experience as opposed to being purely theoretical.
  • Be innovative - Focus on content that is timely, relevant and is either new or provides a fresh perspective on something that already exists.
  • Be catchy not corny - Offer titles and descriptions that will catch and keep the audience's interest but without annoying them. There is no formula for accomplishing this, so you will have to rely on your instincts.
