An example is illustrated below: Member Name Tasks V. Recommendations ○ For each slide, know the points you want to make. Make them. Move to the next slide. ○ Give the name of your project and list everyone who is involved (team members, external stakeholder(s)). ○ At the beginning include a slide that gives an overview of what you are going to present. This prevents questions of the kind "Are you going to say something
  4. 4. about ...?". ○ Number your slides (bottom right footer: "1 out of 20", "2 out of 20", etc.). This will make it easier for your audience to refer to individual slides during the questions-and-answers session. ○ Include your project name in the footer of each slide. This will help people who show up late for your presentation.
