We’ve all heard presentations delivered to help us nod off. Some presentations are written in “legalese” or something that seems like it. They use the passive voice and long, meandering sentences that are virtually impossible to decipher.

This habit will help you quickly identify the problem areas in your presentation and fix them. You’ll be a more compelling presenter, as a result.

Final Thoughts:

Before you move on, here are some important points to remember:

  • Make sure the words you use in your presentation are conversational; to be spoken aloud
  • Make sure the audience is familiar with any terms you plan to use
  • Make sure your grammar, spelling and pronunciation are the best they can be.
