Ian Tannock, MD, PhD, DSc, from the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada, gives advice on presenting research at the European Cancer Congress of the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO) 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He points out that poor presentations are often characterized by a lack of planning and no logical sequence, as well as having too many slides or too much information per slide. He suggests a maximum of 10 – 15 slides for a 10 minute presentation, and highlights that both slides and posters should be easily readable from a distance. Finally, he says that it is also useful to develop presentation skills based on your personal experience.
