  4. 4. Organize 3Start with an attention-grabber opening and go on to structure your presentation so it has a proper intro, body and conclusion—like a story. There should be no loose ends. Summarize, recommend, and suggest action
  5. 5. Keep it short 4Less always says more. The more words you use, the more you end up diluting the point. Use slides as your cue cards and talk rather than read out everything on the slide.
  6. 6. Be persuasive 5Make it about them—not you. Nobody wants to hear something that makes no difference to them. Make them care
  7. 7. Keep it interactive 6People learn by doing. People learn through self discovery And people love hearing themselves talk So keep the audience engaged in activities
  8. 8. Energize your audience 7Stick to specifics and encourage your audience to suggest and discover action points on what you are telling them. No message is worthwhile unless it has an actionable aspect to it.
