5 Mistakes Conference Presenters Make!

TASA member Professor James Arvanitakis is the Pro Vice-Chancellor of Research and Graduate Studies at Western Sydney University. According to James, presenting at a research conference is an exciting opportunity, but presenters often fall into the trap of trying to do too much or not understanding their audience.

In the video below, James  talks about five mistakes that conference presenters often make when giving a talk or lecture.

5 mistakes conference presenters make include:
1. Trying to do too much in a limited time.
2. Choosing the wrong conference.
3. Being under or over prepared.
4. Providing too much background information.
5. Reading too quickly.

This video is suited to PhD and research students, but will also be helpful for anyone working as a researcher or giving a presentation.
