Public Speaking? Use Your iPad to Make Your Next Presentation Flawless!

ipad presentationHave you ever considered using your iPad to present during a conference or meeting? It’s a fantastic tool for presentations! The iPad is light, convenient, and simple to use. If you’re looking to improve your presentations, here’s a few tips for presenting with the iPad:

1.     Keep it Simple

Your presentation should be simple and appealing. Keep your text, images, and other content large, but not cluttered, in order to get the message across. And try to avoid highly-detailed slides.

2.     Rehearse and Prepare

The best presentations are rehearsed to present the information flawlessly. Remember to review your slides and write notes in case you forget the information, however, try to speak from memory as opposed to reading the slides or your notes.

3.     Disable Notifications

When you’re in the middle of a presentation, you don’t want notifications to pop up and distract your audience. Fortunately, you can disable notifications to avoid disruptions. It’s simple: go to Settings, Do Not Disturb, then switch the Manual slider on.

4.     Connect to a Projector

There’s a few ways to connect your iPad to a projector to ensure visibility for your audience. Take a look at ViewSonic, Optoma, and Dell portable projectors, which are compatible with iPads. Or you can stream your presentation to an HDTV using Apple TV and AirPlay or a Mac/PC with AirServer installed.

5.     Use a Remote Control

If you’re using Keynote presentation software, you can control your presentation using a different iOS device. First, download Keynote then open the application on your iPad, then go to Tools, Presentation Tools, Allow Remote Control, and turn Enable Remotes on.

On a separate iOS device, open Keynote and find the Keynote presentations list, then select the Remote icon. You will be prompted to follow specific instructions to link your remote device to your presentation device.

6.     Take Advantage of Laser Pointers

Laser pointers are fantastic for presenting to a large audience. If you’re using Keynote, tap and hold the slide and move your finger around to use the hidden laser pointer. The hidden laser pointer won’t work from your remote device, so it’s a good idea to purchase an actual laser pointer if you’re controlling the presentation from another iOS device.

After switching to Pulse, we were pleased to know that our IT service bills were consistent and fixed fee each month. This part was huge because finally we could plan and budget for our IT service expenses. We also appreciated the fact that Pulse would dispatch experienced technicians based on the issue at hand resulting in faster resolution of problems that arose. One of the most valuable parts of working with Pulse is that I know there will be a quick and appropriate resolution to any issue that we experience. This process gives me peace of mind because like most small businesses, we need quick and efficient responses to any and every system issue we may face.
