The Scholarly Lecture: How to Stand and Deliver

Six Golden Rules for giving presentations

Useful for those in the job market.

You may be one of those people who wouldn't dream of crossing a street in Manhattan or Hyde Park without a bottle of spring water in your backpack (you never know when the sand dunes might blow up and leave you stranded), but the podium isn't the place. Bottles, hip flasks, and Slurpee cups look unprofessional.

Could also explain the field bed, portable shower and backup generator on the recommended items list
