Imagine this scene: your group has to present a report to your class on your group project. Or this: you have completed a major assignment and now you must present your results to the class. Either way, you know that your performance will be judged by how informative and well prepared your talk is, and how well you bring the topic alive for your audience. Everyone will be expecting the presenter to employ some kind of visual media and do a good job. In this chapter we demonstrate how you can exploit the powerful features of presentation software to create your message, highlight content and maintain audience attention. Many of our readers will be giving presentations to classmates, so this chapter is intended for those situations; however, we have chosen principles that apply to all presentations.
