How To Make Technical Presentations Interesting?

Start analogy:

The most useful thing you can do when you start putting together a presentation is to reach for slide ware. Use a paper notebook to brainstorm my ideas with multi-coloured pens, and then scan it so you can refer back to it quickly when putting the slides together.

Mind-mapping a talk:

Don't create slides linearly.  Focus on an idea in the brainstorm that surprises you the most and use it as a jump-off point for creating slides. The initial idea helps set the tone for the rest of the presentation.

Be thorough:

Shortcuts are obvious to your audience. But every minute you put into the preparation pays off. So remember to be thorough with your speech and content and everything.

Tailor your content:

It's okay to give the same speech at multiple conferences, but make sure you alter the content so it's relevant to your audience.

Practice makes man perfect:

Know the timing of your speech and presentation. Work out what the average time you should spend on each slide. Don't wait until you've finished the presentation before you start practicing.

Consistency and Harmony is necessary:

Use a consistent background and colour scheme throughout the presentation. Use modules to segment the presentation. Use common graphic and colour symbolism to avoid confusion. Make sure you keep all major graphic elements consistent. Use only one font family in your presentation.

For an experimental talk, you don't just want to communicate raw data but you want to show relationships. Tables, charts and graphs give you an opportunity to show these relationships graphically which are easier to explain and comprehend. But these graphs should be accurate and comprehensible. Keep graphs simple. The audience should be able to absorb your ideas at a glance. If you show too many bars, slices, or lines, the audience will be forced to spend excess time deciphering data.
