OKay, I think that's all I have to say. Um, anybody has any questions? No questions? OKay, thanks. Alright, that's not how to end a presentation. Let me talk briefly about how to end a presentation. You end the presentation cleanly and clearly and I'll talk about that in a moment. Reiterate your main points and then give your audience next steps or something to think about when they leave. When I say, "you end it." When the time has arrived for the presentation to end, you'll find people packing up their things and starting to put their coats on. At that point a lot of presenters will go, "Well, I guess that's about it." and they'll start to put their things together and put their coat on and leave. That does not create an impression that you're in control, and it doesn't give a last moment that the audience can take with them. So, what to do instead. Reiterate your main points. I've hit hard over and over again on how your presentation is about main points that your trying to deliver to your audience as well as possible. Reiterate what those main points are. Once you've done that, tell them what to do with those main points. What are the next steps they should be taking? What are the things that they should be thinking about after having seen your presentation. At this point you might also want to be taking questions and answers if you haven't been taking them throughout. And I do have a section on questions and answers, but just so that you'll know, I'm saying that the last thing you'll want to do. Once you've gotten your last question, again, you end it by saying, "If there are no further questions, I would like to thank all of you for being here, I enjoyed my time with you this evening, good luck using the, whatever it is I told you to use. Thanks again. Good night. End the presentation as if you mean it. To end my presentation exactly the way that I told you to. I've been talking to you about making outstandingly good presentations by physically being where you need to be and what you need to be so the audience can get your message. I've talked about delivering messages with passion and I've talked about being in control of your audience and how you look in terms of questions and how you dress, and even how you end your presentations. The next steps that I want to give you are the seven series coming up after this one on how to make outstandingly good presentations. The next series coming up is on how to interact with your audience during outstandingly good presentations. I hope you watch it. Thank you.
