Tips for the proposal presentations day:

  1. Encourage your colleagues to attend the presentations.
  2. Dress smartly.
  3. Please be in the meeting room at least 30 minutes before the programme begins to check that your presentation has been uploaded to the computer.
  4. Sit at the front of the meeting room.
  5. Attend the whole day.
  6. Do not be late returning to the meeting room after breaks and lunchtime.
  7. You have 20 minutes for your presentation. You will not be allowed to continue past 20 minutes. You will be alerted when you have 5 min left, and 1 min left.
  8. Please do not get offended if you feel any question or comment is ‘harsh’. The questions and comments serve to improve your proposal. Please accept questions and comments gracefully. Remember, the audience has committed time to attend your presentation, so please be grateful for any feedback.
  9. Answer questions succinctly and accurately. If you do not know the answer, then be truthful and state that you do not know, but say you will find out after the presentation.
  10. When your discussion has ended, make notes on all comments and questions.
  11. Please engage in the discussions for all the presentations.
