Trey Martindale’s tips for tolerable presentations

One of my favourite blogs is “Teachable Moment,” owned and operated by Trey Martindale. I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing a few presentations by Trey over the years, so I was particularly interested in seeing what he had to say about making tolerable presentations. Here are some good, common-sense ideas from a master presenter. He humbly suggests he is compiling this list for himself, but I’ve seen him too many times to think he needs his own advice. But I’ve been in enough other presentations to know that the rest of us do.

Green & White Day at the U of S

A letter from Peter MacKinnon, President of the U of S:

In support of the University of Saskatchewan and Huskie Athletics, I would like to encourage everyone to wear Huskie apparel or green & white clothing to campus on Friday, December 2nd.

The Huskie Football team will play in the National Championship Final—the Desjardins Vanier Cup—in Hamilton this Saturday. The game will be televised on TSN.

Wear your Huskie apparel or green & white clothing to help us show the city, the province and the country that we are proud of our institution and the accomplishments of our student athletes, and that we support their pursuit of excellence. For those whose workplaces will not allow for more casual dress, I encourage you to show your support in other creative ways (display a sign, etc).
