Maximum presentation time: 1-person teams, 4 minutes; 2-person teams, 6 minutes; 3-person teams, 8 minutes.
Ask beforehand if you want informal feedback on how you presented.
Some notes on one presentation:
It was comprehensive, but perhaps too so -- with only a limited time, you need to decide who your audience is and what you want them to remember. What you CAN'T attempt to do is summarise ALL of your report.
My comment: "too many words" -- use keywords on your slides and speak to them, but as above you need to simplify.
The presentation is really to give your classmates the outline of WHAT you have studied, WHY you have chosen it as a strategic interaction, and HOW you have gone about studying it, although not exhaustively. (I of course get to read the report, so I learn more than you can show in 4 minutes.)
Your demeanor was good: eye contact, audible, legible overheads.
