Assume your audience is intelligent but uninformed in your area
-explain what people di not know
-avoid jargon especially avoid abbreviations

Use pointer with precision
-with 2 screens, consider the mouse so you point on both screens

Acknowledge your coworkers as you go
-avoid final slide with lots of acknowledgements
-it was suggested to make acknowledgements at beginning if it sets the stage

Show outline and repeat outline

Humor is good

State before and after each point being made what the bottom line is

Have a trick if you need it to prompt yourself

While you cannot ask and answer questions throughout, pose rhetorical questions

Merits and problems of eye contact were extensively discussed
-use of pointer prevents eye contact throughout
-don't stare anyone down, scan around
-you can check if people are getting your points and appreciating your humor

A summary slide at the end is good

Watch your timing
-too long is terrible
-practice

Pick slide colors that are easy to see

Pick print size that is easy to see

Use few words
-if a slide has a lot of words, then people read the slide instead of listening

Use diagrams
