Effectively practice a 5 minute group presentation

  • If you're still working on memorizing your script, then only read off of paper or notecards. No phones because phones = distration.
  • Have one person start the recorder and record the entire 5 minute presentation on the voice recorder on your phone.
  • Put the recording phone on the table, and everyone else put your phones away.
  • Present as if it's the real deal. Before you speak, take a deep breath and imagine your presentation being perfect. Then start the show!
  • Each of you have a pen and paper ready for the review session, so you can take notes about your own words and delivery.
  • After the presentation, take a little break, high five each-other. Take a moment to feel good about how far you've come.
  • Regroup and sit down together. Play back the audio. Listen to yourself carefully. Ask yourself, do your words sound like you? Are any sentences too big of a mouthful? Are you noticing that your words are changing a little bit from your script? That means your brain knows better.
  • This will take around 15 minutes for setup, presenting, and reviewing.
  • Do this 3 times in a row and then take a longer break. Shake it off, get some water, bathroom, fresh air.
  • With focus, you can get between 6-10 rounds of practice in before lunch!
