Basic Presenter Tips

Presenting at a conference or seminar, either one of our Hot Topics events or elsewhere, then you might find some of our simple presenter tips useful. We've broken them down into sections for slides, venue and presenting. 
Colour

Adding Colour To Your Presentation

Systems like Powerpoint and Keynote have plenty of theme options to keep the average person happy, you can even download hundreds more online from sites like fttp.com. But maybe you've got to the stage where you want your presentations to be unique rather than using someone elses work. A good starting place is picking which colours to use
Hendrix

Overdose, Stigma and the Great Challenge

Last year on the 31st of August 2011, (International Overdose Awareness Day) I posted an image of Jimi Hendrix to Twitter with the following caption; 'Imagine how much sweeter the world would sound with a little more harm reduction'. (While there are varying reports regarding the nature of Hendrix's death the official finding was that he asphyxiated on his own vomit after consuming more alcohol than he was able to tolerate – effectively an overdose of alcohol). It was my way of acknowledging that when a fatal overdose occurs it is not just a death that occurs but the loss of an opportunity.
Fonts

Fonts in Powerpoint

When delivering a presentation or conference talk you often spend hours making it look just right, which often includes changing fonts away from the usual 'Times New Roman' and 'Arial'. But then you load the presentation onto the venue computer and everything changes. Here's how to prevent that by learning to embed your fonts in powerpoint.
Smoking

Needles are not enough

In the 1980s, the UK and many other countries started developing needle programmes in an attempt to limit the impact that HIV was having on the injecting community and by extension the general public.But this intervention only works with injectors. Injectors are likely to have been using drugs for a number of years already, so surely supplying equipment to people smoking or snorting their drug of choice should be a logical next step in early engagement.
