I got this question about group presentations and wanted to share it to help you, too.
Here is the message from Sandra:
“Respected Sir, I am a frist-yesr student and on this saturday, I have a presentation with six members in my group and we will talk to brain drain in Vietnam. Hence, I do not know that how to organize so that all people in group can say in presentation but it is not boring audience. Each part in presentation has 2 members state together or each part has only member state. How do you think which is better way? Besides, do you know reliable documents about my topic because after presenting, we will write a assignment about it. Moreover, could you help me so that I can create pleasantness in this topic?
I really need your help to details about this my topic.
Thank you very much.”
And my answer…
Thanks for your message. Very busy here lately so couldn’t answer until now.
I think it’s better if each person speaks individually. However, don’t have everyone standing together. When one person is speaking, the other 5 should be off to the side and behind the speaker, if possible.
As for information about your topic, you could examine brain drain in other countries. Then you could compare to Vietnam and maybe offer ideas or solutions to reducing the problem in Vietnam. I think that will also help with making the topic more pleasant. People like to hear solutions to problems.
Good luck and let me know how it goes.
Btw, I’m thinking about visiting Vietnam this year but not sure, yet ”
I received this question from sonu and wanted to share my answer with you. I often get this type of question from people, so I hope my answer here will help other people, too. The original question was asked here: Sample Presentation: How to start and end a presentation in 2 minutes 37 seconds
Here is the question…
i am a student pursuing my engineering…i ‘ve a presentation on acoustic localization of aircraft next week.. i wanted to know what can be my introductory statement for this topic to give a good start… and how do i end it…
Who is the audience? What do you have to talk about specifically? Why do you need to talk about it? Why should the audience care?
If you know the answers to those questions, it will be much easier to think of what to say to start your presentation. Your ending can be a recap and what you want your audience to do with the information you shared with them.
Hope that helps.

Thank you so much for your video. I am a student studying to be a Chaplin and motivational speaker. One of my goals is to learn how to introduce myself to individual people. This has given me so much clarity. I really appreciate the way you have kept it simple. English is my first language but I am severely dyslexic and find it hard to find someone who can teach me in a way I understand. YOU JUST DID IT.
Thank you so much.
My reply to Karen…
