Presenter's guide

Thank you for offering to talk at the Tararua Tramping Club. Our Tuesday club nights are enjoyed by our members and friends. We promote your talk on the TTC website. A picture or two to use in our publicity is requested, and we are happy to link to any websites you request.

Our meetings are held at our clubrooms at 4 Moncrieff Street, off lower Elizabeth Street, in Mt Victoria. We provide you with a car park immediately outside the clubrooms, marked with an orange cone.

Please arrive by 7:10pm so we can make you at home. We can assist in setting up and using the audio-visual equipment. We have a sound system so all attendees can hear the presentation, and offer you the choice of a head microphone, lapel microphone, cordless hand microphone, or stand mounted microphone.

You have about 40 minutes, from 7:40 to 8:20, for your presentation, followed by 5 minutes for questions from the audience. This will probably give you time for about 60 to 80 slides, depending on the duration you speak to each slide.

If presenting photos from a folder instead of a PowerPoint presentation, the photos will display in alphabetical order of the image name

  • image names will need to have been named with dates e.g. yyyy-mm-dd, or numbers e.g. 001, 002, 003 etc, (not 1, 2, 3 otherwise the slides will be shown in the order 1, 10-19, 100, 2, 20-29, 200 etc)
