    Less is more
    Don’t clutter the slide, with images or text it can be distracting!
    KNOW YOUR PRESENTATION
    Do not read straight from the slides
    Use the PowerPoint to refer back to in order to reinforce your point, not to explain your position
    STAY FOCUSED
    Speak only about topics presented on your slides
    Allow audience to ask questions at the end of the presentation, not during!
