Tips for making better presentations

I have been doing a lot of public speaking recently and am about to give my first talk in London on the 14th March which is odd as I have spoken all across the UK and given a few talks in the US, but this will be my first in London. I also have put together quite a few presentations for MiniClick at short notice, so I am a dab hand at Keynote as well. Because of this I feel I have gained experience with public speaking to the point where I can offer advice to others who are about to get up in front of a crowd. Some of the advice in this tutorial is geared towards Apple’s Keynote. Keynote is Apple’s version of PowerPoint, if you have Mac and don’t have Keynote, get it now as it’s only £13.99. This is not a Keynote tutorial so if you are PC-using-PowerPoint fan, the information in this post will still be relevant to you.
