The secret of a powerful presentation in English – or for that matter in any language -is to be well prepared. This means knowing your audience. Having a clear message for them. Presenting your message in a well organised argument that’s easy to follow.

Using your slides to maximum effect
As I just said, in a presentation, your slides can either be your best friend or your worst enemy.
I’ll show you tips and tricks to make your slides harder for you.
For instance, how to apply the 10/20/30 rule to your presentations: 10 slides, 20 minutes and 30-pt font size at least.
Did you know that 3 main points in 1O minutes is about all that most audiences – even expert audiences – can absorb. Push them beyond that and you’re likely to loose their attention.
