  20. Organize Content  • Organize the main points and sub-points. • Organize presentation in a logical sequence. • Summarize main points at the end of your presentation.

  21. Technical Considerations • Ensure the last row can clearly see. • Larger font sizes help to ensure legibility. • Use readable Sans Serif Fonts (Arial and Helvetica). • Plan for the worst technology possible. • Sound available? • Drives available? • PC processing speed? • Internet access? • PowerPoint version?
