2. Keep it crisp and clear

As much as we like to keep it detailed, nobody likes a 40 slides long presentation. Always keep your presentation structured, crisp and to the point. Using illustrations and graphs make your presentation visually more appealing while also giving useful data to back your findings.

Unless you are delivering an annual report, your presentation should not last longer than 20 minutes. It is always advisable to start with the most important elements of your presentation, because the longer it is, the shorter is the attention span of audience.
