Tips for making better presentations

I have been doing a lot of public speaking recently and am about to give my first talk in London on the 14th March which is odd as I have spoken all across the UK and given a few talks in the US, but this will be my first in London. I also have put together quite a few presentations for MiniClick at short notice, so I am a dab hand at Keynote as well. Because of this I feel I have gained experience with public speaking to the point where I can offer advice to others who are about to get up in front of a crowd. Some of the advice in this tutorial is geared towards Apple’s Keynote. Keynote is Apple’s version of PowerPoint, if you have Mac and don’t have Keynote, get it now as it’s only £13.99. This is not a Keynote tutorial so if you are PC-using-PowerPoint fan, the information in this post will still be relevant to you.

Talk at PhotoForum in London on Thursday (14th March)

On Thursday 14th of March I’m giving a talk about my work at PhotoForum in London. PhotoForum is a free monthly photography talk with each of the events featuring two speakers. Speaking on the same night as myself will be photo journalist Mimi Mollica. I have spoken about my work in various places like: Book shops in San francisco, Google’s headquarters in California, galleries in Germany, Wales & Leeds, BLAB in Manchester, various Universities and of course the mighty MiniCLick! Until now I have not spoken in London, so it feels like quite a special event for me.

Mini Click talk at Old Market Theatre Hove

On Thursday the 5th of July I will be giving a Mini Click talk in the Bar of the newly refurbished Old Market Theatre, the doors open at 6pm and the talk starts 7pm. This is a change of venue for the Mini Click talks as sadly Mini Click’s home for the past year Add The Colour is closing down. Dan (Add The Colour’s owner) has for the past year been a staunch supporter of everything Brighton Photography related. It was not just the Mini Click talks that where held there but other talks, workshops and numerous exhibitions. Just over a year ago my 2nd book was launched there when it first opened so have very happy memories of the cafe. I am sure, like me, all the Brighton photo massive will wish Dan all the best with what he dose next.

This Thursday I won’t be giving my usual talk because the way I figure it the people of Brighton are probably sick of hearing about me. I will be giving a complete new talk about the work of other photographers that interest and inspire me. These Photographers will range from famous photographers, internet celeb shooters and some offline photographers that unless you met you might not of heard of.



If you think that you are coming it would be really helpful if you could RSVP on this Facebook event page as that will let the Old Market know if they need any extra bar staff. Continue reading
