Now that you have written your presentation, the question arises as to what you do with it. The one thing you do not do is just take the script with you and read it! Firstly, that would mean your head was buried in the script, giving the audience nothing to look at apart from the top of your head, which is unlikely to be your most expressive feature. Secondly, it removes from the presentation anything that would make it a presentation: that is, something to hold the audience’s attention, thus enabling what you are saying to be communicated. Most people have seen presentations or lectures done this way — you probably have, and know how awful it can be. The lesson must be not to do it.
