Presentation Principles:

For a more effective presentation, introduce only one or two ideas at a time.

Use large readable fonts with only a few ideas presented on each slide.

Make each slide interesting but not cluttered.

Giving a presentation should involve more than simply reading each slide.

Keep the presentation interactive by asking for responses from the audience to pertinent questions.

Consider giving the audience something to take notes on and something to take away from the presentation.
