  3. 01 The first few minutes of a presentation are the most important. Start your presentation with a quick introduction to who you are and then reel them in with a compelling opener. DESIGNED BY
  4. 02Too much focus on facts and not emotions. DESIGNED BY
  5. 02 You won't score points with a data dump. You might impress your audience with your sales growth  but they will walk away remembering how they felt. People remember stories, not facts. DESIGNED BY
  6. 03Disorganized content DESIGNED BY
  7. 03 Poor presentation flow will lose your audience’s attention. When developing your presentation, outline your content first. This will act as a roadmap that your audience can follow. DESIGNED BY
  8. 04Transition & animation overload DESIGNED BY
  9. 04 Transitions & animations can create emphasis but too much can be annoying. Keep it simple. If you’re going to use them, choose one or two that are no-frills and stick with them the whole way through. DESIGNED BY
  10. 05Being read to DESIGNED BY
  11. 05 Avoid putting everything on the slide and reading it out like a script. Stick with a 
 few key ideas. The visual presentation should only complement your verbal one. DESIGNED BY
  12. 06Endless charts DESIGNED BY
  13. 06 You can make more of an impact by removing the chart altogether and presenting the key takeaways. DESIGNED BY Nothing tunes 
 people out faster than a deck filled with uninspiring charts.
  14. 07Lack of humor DESIGNED BY
  15. 07 No matter what your topic is, don't take yourself too seriously. Humor is a powerful tool. Know your audience, draw from relevant anecdotes, and practice your delivery. DESIGNED BY
  16. 08Lack of passion and enthusiasm DESIGNED BY
  17. 08 If you're not excited about your topic, why should they be? If your topic doesn't excite you, find something about 
 it that does.
