  24. 24. 1Plan your presentation beforehand
  25. 25. 1 Plan your presentation beforehand Think about what point you want to make before you start dumping information intoa PowerPoint file uncontrollably.It's better to create a word file withwhatever you want to say, divide your presentation in sections and then get started. This will certainly keep things tothe point, while simultaneously saving you a bit of effort later on.

  27. 27. 2Kill bullet points
  28. 28. 2Try to create slides withsmall amounts of text, as listeners are generally not inclined tofollow a massive presentation and learn it by heart. However, they will easily remember quotes or short sentences. Kill bullet points

  30. 30. 33Use photos
  31. 31. 3No photos from Google though. Either buy stock photos or use freely provided ones in good quality. A nice picture always gives a bit of extra flair to any presentation. However, donot forget that in case that you do use free photos you have to give credit to their creator. As the saying goes, a picture = 1000 words! Use photos

  33. 33. 4Differentiation is everything
  34. 34. 4You surely have seen lots of presentations adorned withamazing pictures.Nonetheless, this doesn't necessarily mean that all of them are good, or that they can keep the audience engaged in the very least. This is mainly because eachpresentation must come witha story and the proper structure. Think about jokes for example.Each joke has a very specific structure that helps expand the storyline. Differentiation is everything

  41. 41. 5Try to structure your presentation in a way that will keep your audience engaged from the beginning till the end.Start by presenting the main subject of your presentation, analyseit and expand it gradually. Don’t give everything away at once. Try to keep some of the best bits for the end. Keep your audience at the edge of their seats

  49. 49. 7No matter how well you thinkyou know your presentation, rehearsing it will help you put things in the right order and get confident. It is imperative that you learn at least the main points by heart.Try not to leave it last minute if you want to make the impression you intended to make from the beginning. REHEARSE IT

  53. 53. 8Always try to use examples.It's much easier for your audience to understand what you want to say through a well placed example and properly presented statisticaldata, than through tons of theory. In case that you are presenting case studies from previous projects, try to pick the ones you know you can explain and analyse best. USE EXAMPLES AND SHOW SOME STATS
