Has anyone ever sat through a boring presentation?
Make sure you have been formally introduced

Use examples, quotes, metaphors
Outline your presentation
KISS Approach--Keep it stupid simple, then expand
Avoid "TMI"--Too much information
Stay focused and be concise
Avoid 100 slide Powerpoints
Get their attention
Be courteous; Don't forget to thank your audience
Practice makes perfect
Great speakers/presenters are made, not born
Speaking and presentation aptitudes are underrated

Presenting in the "real world" happens everyday
Don't depend on technology
Don't read from slides
If you know the material, you won't need slides
Tech-support is support; supplement to your presentation
Technology can fail
