Some might think that scientific communication is « only » about… communication. Somebody creates a powerpoint, gives it to you and you just have to show up and elaborate on what appears on screen. Well, let me tell you : fortunately, there is a little bit more of creativity involved here !
I don’t think I would be able to speak on someone else presentation. I had to do it in the past, and it always turn out to be a catastrophe. Which totally makes sense somehow. Our minds are all wired in a different way, and no doubt : my preference will always go towards what I create.
And when it comes to powerpoint presentations, I have a lot of them (if you don’t believe me, look at my Slideshare that showcase only a fraction of my creations).
I like them all, especially the most recent ones on which I spent much more time (because the more you create, the more complex it gets somehow - in my opinion, always a good sign). I created them so they serve their purpose of sharing knowledge. I don’t like to let them sit on my computer.
That’s why I was so happy when I was asked to give this presentation on : « Infectious Diseases Prevention : My Top 20 Tips in Animal Shelters. » I used it only once, during our previous 2015 International Shelter Convention in France. I loved presenting it, and no doubt I really wanted to give it another run.
Delivering it this week made me feel great, and I can’t wait to do it again. But since I don’t know when this will happen, I thought I should also share the notes I created.
And if you want to give a quick look at the presentation, here is the slideshare deck below. Sure, it does not tell the entire story… but if you want to hear it all, you know where to find me !
