Section 5.3

Conclusion of a Presentation

Your conclusion gives the audience their last impression of you and your content. Now is the time to emphasize your most important points. Know exactly how you plan to wrap up your presentation, and leave your listeners with an image of confidence.

By the time you reach your conclusion, the audience has been educated about your topic. You can build on this understanding in your closing. For example, you could consider the implications of your message for the future or call your audience to action.

Whatever closing words you choose, give the audience a moment to process your final idea before asking for questions or exiting.
