OK I have to do this presentation and its not until the first week of June as I told you with a powerpoint presentation. I'll get to grips with that I guess, its not like I'm computer illeterate at 32, but I'll have to sort that. My point is, we had a talk today on my study day from the course from some bloke in charge of A/E and emergency admissions about how to present your projects.......clearly this bloke is an expert on the subject, and looking around at my colleagues, his confidence didn't inspire them but I think just made them feel even more incapable! (me, a bit included) he kept using them crap phrases like "touching base" "lets network" "it's a win-win situation"......boy do I hate them phrases.
For my project I have chosen "Better communication within the nursing/medical team" and I've got a rough idea of what I want to say, but I just want to know if any of you have any good advice about presentation skills I need to employ. In my own ward environment I'm, if anything over the top, laughing and joking, have plenty of confidence, because I know them, and they're my staff. But the thought of having to present infront of a room of 100, made up of all the hospital managers and directors is starting to make me quake a bit!!! I usually get by this with using humour to "break the ice" but not sure this will be appropriate here, after all I supposed to be a concientous ward manager now . So basically....HELP!!
