Merlin Mann relates what in his experience can push a presentation to the next level. He says you should try to begin with a relatable anecdote that ignites interest before entering into a formal introduction. Use notes with only key ideas to keep you on track.

Q&A afterward can be a lot of fun, and everyone hates a presentation that overstays its welcome.
