It's All in the Details: 19 Do's, Don'ts, and Best Practices for Presentation Pros
"It's all in the details, right? Whether you're talking attire, an essay, or decorating a cake, the small matters are what will make or break you every time. It's no different for presentations. Although each misstep on its own may not feel like a big deal, a culmination of missteps can result in a poorly executed presentation.
1. Do you know the one thing you should never say to your audience at the start of your presentation?
2. Are there phrases you use that diminish your power? What are they, and what should you say instead?
3. Do you know what it is presenters often have audiences do but that you should stop doing?
Get the answers to all of these questions and more. Avoid common mistakes, and you set-up yourself to look, feel, and sound like a real pro!"
