Structuring Content: Introductions, Conclusions & Focus
- Introduce yourself!
- Include a slide outlining your presentation.
- Tell the audience why they should be interested: why is this important? why is this relevant?
- Recap the most important points, usually 2-5 things.
- Provide a verbal cue, i.e. ‘thank you for your time', to let the audience that you are done.
Interacting with the Audience
- Ask audience questions to gauge prior knowledge and comprehension during/after the presentation
- Use games to polls to engage the audience.

- Don’t write in complete sentences unless using a direct quote.
