You presentation design must be elegant without extravagant design elements. Choose an appropriate template which relates to the topic you are going to present. Embed images wherever you think necessary, never use them as a placeholder.

Build Curiosity

This is one of the most effective public presentation strategies. Pose Questions to your audience to build up curiosity which makes them immerse totally into your presentation. A common technique followed in business presentations is posing questions about the current trend for the first few slides and then introducing their product which answers those questions.
