  • The “race against the clock” presentation-

    This presentation might be well-planned and have a good balance of points and evidence, but the presenter hasn’t rehearsed and timed it. Pretty soon, they become aware they’re not going to have enough time to cover everything they planned, and the race is on!

    Simple solution: rehearse and time your presentation.
