Giving a Talk, a website written by Frank R. Kschischang from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronoto. His advice is sensible and addresses most of the important issues to ponder in preparing to give a talk.
Pointers on Giving a Talk [also called How to Give a Bad (Good) Talk], is a one-page table contrasting the wrong and right ways to do some of the important things in a talk. It was written by David G Messerschmitt, from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. It is a very concise presentation contrasting how to (and how not to) accomplish some of the most important things in a talk. It is not a comprehensive recipe for a good talk, but does include some useful pointers.
Giving a Talk, a somewhat humerous set of tips on giving a talk that is on the webpage of Bruce Randall Donald, Department of Computer Science, Dartmouth College. The emphasis is on the mistakes to avoid, providing alternative ways of doing things right.
Tips for Preparing Scientific Talks and Using Visual Aids, is a somewhat more ponderous set of tips with some cute cartoons and quotes along with useful advice. This is from an Office of Naval Research website.
(Although several of the websites above are from Electrical
or Computer Science departments, the advice is quite general.
happened to be the best sites that popped up in my search.)
