In this video, you can see Chris Mestre present the topic of Occupational Health and Safety. Chris is a studying Automation at Sotra Vgs. The task can be found here.
In my opinion, this presentation stands out:
· Because of the high quality of content as Chris covers the topic in its complexity.
· Chris covers all parts of the task which can be found here.
· Chris uses different tools to convey his content: he uses body language and he writes and draws on the blackboard to emphasize parts of the content.
· He is poised under pressure, uses formal language and maintains eye contact with the audience throughout the presentation.
· He does not read from a script which shows that he has understood the content and can produce sentences in English language on the spot.
· His language is fluent as he communicates his content well using right technical vocabulary and the presentation flows well.
· His language is also pretty accurate, and even though one can see some concord issues, they do not hinder communication and are not very frequent.
Here are some tips to improve the presentation even more.
· Chris could have told the audience what exactly “long term health risks" mean. This is because it is easy to confuse long term health risks with long-term consequences. The former indicates a health issue that can come up if the working conditions are not optimal. For example, loss of eye sight over time due to poor lighting. The latter refers to a consequence of a health related issue and can also occur from a safety hazard. For example, you can break your leg if you slip and fall because of wet floor. The consequence is long-term even though it does not take place over time.
· Chris should also discuss the prevention of the risks in-depth.
· It is a good idea to say something more about the sources than just “here are my sources.” One can, for example, comment on why a certain source was used . One can also comment on the reliability and the credibility of the sources.
All in all, this is a brilliant presentation by Chris which I am proud to share with you, with his permission of course.
