Some general presentation rules to consider are: keep
each slide’s content simple; use words or phrases; don’t
clutter; and use art and images appropriately.

make your presentation more entertaining.
Techniques to help you give a better presentation include
planning, preparing, outlining, talking at a moderate rate,
following cues from the audience, and leaving time for
questions.
