      2. Preparing your content
        1. Benefits: when you prepare your content before a presentation you make them more faster and easier for you to read or to comprehend the ideas that you put avoiding the excess of texts.
          1. Best way to use this: this is a tip and you need to use all the time because you ever ever need to be prepared before a presentation
          2. usage of images
            1. Benefits: the bigger its better, one image per slide, mix your visuals and creative commons are phrases that make you think if you use images in a presentation you can get the attenttion of the audience that can be unaware or disadvantaging for you
              1. Best way to use this: the usage of images and pictures in the presentation its the best idea when you don't want to explain a lot and you try to get the idea for the audience more visual
              2. Text
                1. Benefits: the faster someone can read what's on your slide, the quicker they will return to your face and concentrate on what you are saying.
                  1. Best way to use this: when you want your audience to be paying attention to you while they are looking at the slides
                  2. Effective communication
                    1. Benefits: It has to be compelling. There’s a special need to use an authoritative tone, to deliver an air of confidence. But beware! It doesn’t have to be arrogant or you may lose your audience’s attention. Remember the following tips during your presentation: it is key to make eye contact, speak clearly and project, engage the audience by fielding questions, and most importantly (and this is new): stay calm.
                      1. Best way to use this: all the time you need to make an effective communication if you don't make the conection with your audience then they don't even care about what are you talking about
                      2. Be Logical
                        1. Benefits: you have a logical structure in your presentation to make it better and as the name say, make it logical.
                          1. Best way to use this: Think of your presentation as a story. There must be a logical flow: a clear beginning, a middle and a proper ending. You set the stage (beginning), you tell the story (middle), and you have a big finish (the end) where the take-home message is clearly understood.
                          2. The floor is a stage
                            1. Benefits: Presentations should be enjoyable, but do not spoil it and do know your limits. If you are not funny by nature, do not try and be funny. If you are not good at telling personal stories, do not try and tell them, and so on.
                              1. Best way to use this: all the floor, if you know where you going to do your presentation, you can take an advantage of all the scenario or all the resources at your disponibility in the stage
                              2. Provide Appropriate Acknowledgments
                                1. Benefits: People love to be acknowledged for their contributions. Having many gratuitous acknowledgments degrades the people who actually contributed. If you defy Rule 7, then you will not be able to acknowledge people and organizations appropriately, as you will run out of time. It is often appropriate to acknowledge people at the beginning or at the point of their contribution so that their contributions are very clear.
                                  1. Best way to use this: Sometimes you are sure a presentation will go well, and afterward you feel it did not go well. Other times you dread what the audience will think, and you come away satisfied. But that’s the way things are sometimes.
                                  2. Make a persistent message
                                    1. Benefits: There is a very simple exercise to see if your message made a good impression. Whenever possible, ask a member of your audience a week later about your presentation. He or she should be able to remember three of your key points. If these are the ones you were trying to present, it was a great job. Any other three points remembered, but not the key points, demonstrate your emphasis was mistaken.
                                      1. Best way to use this: If they can’t recall any points at all (or just one or two), it is clear you didn’t do a good job.
                                      2. Communicate in your specialty
                                        1. Benefits: As we stated before, demonstrating to students is different from offering a proposal to a corporate board of directors. Other types of presentations include training demonstrations, business proposals, professional negotiations, or even job interviews.
                                          1. Best way to use this: They’re all valid objectives. All you need is to set them up properly.
