  1. Invite questions and answer them. Leave time for a Q & A session. Better yet, replace your entire presentation with a Q & A session.
  2. Have passion for your topic. Display this passion and conviction during your presentation.
  3. Have a conversation during your presentation. Avoid jargon. Use plain, friendly, informal language.
  4. During your presentation, give demonstrations. Keep them short, simple, and dramatic.
  5. Get into the presentation topic directly. Don't recite your credentials. Let your content gain you credibility.
  6. Focus on your primary message: What is the question that matters the most to your audience?
  7. Focus on the primary purpose. Decide if you want to inform, instruct, involve, or influence your audience.
