The presentation was the main thing - do not what to say, and how. Highlighting important ideas, you should ensure that they sounded clear, simple, clear and at the same time interesting. It is possible for a speech several times to repeat the important point that all caught the message.
Properly prepare slides. Remember that they only have to illustrate your story, but do not describe all of you. Do not put a lot of text in the slides, they are only the visual information for a better listening experience. Your presentation should primarily be interesting narration with correct intonation and expressive gestures. Even interesting pictures fade before the featureless monotonic speech. Instead, the text on the slides, pay attention to the correct selection of images, try to slide as best you can illustrate your presentation clearly demonstrated your idea. You arrange slides using gradient background and the font size medium. Do not put a large table and multi-level lists.

Do not read your report, look at the audience and do not turn your back on it. Do not lean on a table or chair. You can move around the room to establish closer contact with the audience. But do not go constantly from side to side, it can only distract them.
At the end of the presentation gave the audience a colorful booklets or CDs with the presentation to confirm his words and leave something in memory. This increases your chances of success.
