Presentations

Most groups bring their own laptop to give their presentations. If you do not have access to a laptop, please contact me in advance to make appropriate arrangements.

Practice your presentations with a stopwatch or alarm clock, so that you get the timing right. The schedule is sometimes tight, and if you overrun, the faciliator will have to cut you off. This is usually not pleasant.
