8 Secrets to a Knockout Business Presentation was about learning how to have a very effective and powerful presentation.
To find an unexpected thought or idea that stimulates discussion.
Don’t overload your audience with irrelevant words or pictures that would bore them.
Practice enough times to get all kinks out of your presentation, remove distractions and watch your body language when presenting.
Speak the language that is simple enough for everyone to understand, don’t use (jargon) or terms that most people won’t be familiar with, if you do use them explain what they mean.
Don’t over use power point, what I call death by power point, where the audience is very bored.
