“Be brief, be bright and be gone.”
Teresa A. Taylor, the COO at Qwest, gave this advice about making a presentation.
Some people think the more they talk, the more important they will be perceived. Listen to Ms. Taylor. The more compact your presentation, the more you will be seen as confident and your presentation as brilliant. Get rid of jargon, stay focused on the one idea you want the audience to remember and support it with data and stories.
