BLUF: I'm looking for effective tools to provide reminders of my talking points during presentations.
For the past 15 months I've been working in a job (outreach specialist/stakeholder relationship manager/project manager) that requires a significant amount of public speaking. This ranges from large conferences to three person executive staff briefings.
Since starting I've been phasing in the M-T presentation best practices and I've managed to whittle the monstrous decks my communications team gives me down to about one slide every five minutes - and only that many because there are some slides I'm mandated to show less I incur the wrath of the comms manager.
This, however, has increased my need for rehearsal (which is good) but also for reminders of my talking points since I can't rely on the content of the decks to remind me anymore. I've experimented with printing out the full deck in "handout" format for me to reference, typing out bullet points on letter size paper, and hand-writing index cards. I've found advantages and disadvantages to all of these and I was wondering what methods others are using?
