What to Bring

Before you come to your appointment, here are some things you can bring to make it as efficient and helpful as possible:

  • Fill out this preparation worksheet prior to your consultation.
  • Bring your rough draft (including PowerPoint, Prezi, videos, etc.) Feel free to email everything to one of the coaches beforehand!
  • Any questions or concerns regarding your presentation (such as organization, visual aids, grammar, body language, tacking nerves).
  • Bring any applicable rubrics or guidelines.
  • Groups are welcome!
What to Expect

Presentation Consults offer personalized instruction to members of the OU-Tulsa community experiencing communication apprehension or "stage fright" as well as help with overall presentation design and organization. Presentation coaches work one-on-one or with groups from the initial brainstorming all the way through practice and delivering presentations.
