There are so many different strategies with using notes. It depends on the person and their speaking style. Thanks for the list of suggestions.

I'm a big fan, user, and advocate of notes. In addition to your recommendations, which I second, I suggest that speakers hold notes in their non-dominant hand. That's so they can gesture freely with their dominant hand, and not wave their notes around. Thanks for a great post. Chris

Great advice! Using note cards has always been something of a challenge…organizing them, visual contact with them, etc. I find suggestion number 4 of the 5 particularly helpful as breaking eye contact with an audience can be cumbersome. Thanks!

This is a very useful blog post on the use of notes. It is one of those areas where we could all do with a little guidance. Rgds Vince

Thank you! I feel like I just got "permission" to use notes when I present. :) I give a lot of product presentations via the web, and always felt guilty using notes even then! LOL Most of the notes are on random pieces of paper, though, so I'll clean them up and transfer to index cards for future use. Thanks!
