A good presentation should end with a closing that is as powerful as the beginning. Before you end a presentation, first, you need to give audience a signal that the end of your presentation is coming. You can say “now I will finalize with the conclusions” or “to sum up….” It also alerts the audience to pay attention.
As people will remember the end of your presentation best, it is a great opportunity to recap and emphasize your main message. At the end of your talk, it’s a good idea to summarize what you’ve spoken about, and help them to see how your ideas were connected.
If the purpose of your presentation is to persuade people to start to do something or change something, you could end it with a strong call-to-action, such as “begin the journey”,” vote today!” Your genuine enthusiasm is the most important element of a compelling conclusion. Your presentation has a purpose; let the purpose shine through in the conclusion of your presentation.
- 一句无聊的“that’s all I have to say.”
- 一句平淡的“thank you” 或 “are there any questions?”
