“Thank you for the organized webinar. It was very informative and useful to listen to the real professional. All remarks that were pointed out are relevant today. Recommendations on presentations can be used not only for the competition, but also in our daily student life. It is very difficult to speak to the public, but now due to our new knowledge and skills in this field we will present our project in the best possible way”.

“In this webinar, the lecturer explained us as clear as possible all the subtleties of the skill of creating an effective presentation, which is no less important for being a successful person of the 21st century. A lot of important issues were discussed, which can be grouped into 3 big questions, namely:
- How to correctly prepare for the presentation;
- What should be the structure of the presentation, which can attract the attention of the audience and thereby convey the main thought (idea) of the speaker;
- How to make slides, and therefore how to breathe life into the presentation itself.
I hope that other participants will agree with this opinion and we will not be mistaken if we say that the webinar was very useful for each participant and everyone was able to learn something new.
We are grateful to the lecturer from EY Business Academy, who conducted a webinar and provided detailed and clear information, and we also thank the organizers of the competition, who gave us the opportunity to participate in this webinar.”

“Webinar on “Creating an effective presentation” organized by the “Student Energy Challenge” competition organizers is very useful for us, as we are going to present our project to the jury at the Youth conference.
Information we learned during online training:
- Purpose of information;
- Audience analysis (Expectations, motivation, competence, position, gender, age, format);
- Idea of the whole presentation;
- Clear headings that reveal the essence of the slide;
- Composition rule;
- People can remember 7 (+/- 2) objects. The edge factor - people remember the information that was presented at the beginning and in the end. Use of images. Slide is a message.
- Certain colours.
I hope that such useful trainings will be held more often for the successful development of young leaders.
