Don’t overload on jargon: Steer clear of excessive technical jargon or acronyms that might confuse attendees who are not as familiar with the terminology.

Don’t go off-topic: stick to the topic you’ve prepared and avoid digressing into unrelated areas.

Don’t read from slides: do not read directly from your slides. Use them as a guide, but focus on speaking directly to the audience.

Don’t run over time: respect the schedule and ensure you do not exceed your allotted time. It’s important to leave time for questions and interaction.
