    If you decide to do a full run through, it might be a good time to put on a headset and record the presentation.

    You should also have someone else review your slides and check for grammatical errors such as:

    6. Decide the placement of Demos - ie., how many demos and which one's come after which slide.

    They take away from the presentation and tend to cause the audience to look for more errors.

    That's a good suggestion. Thanks.

    Haha.. Thanks for the suggestion. my oversight... Thanks for pointing out and I have updated it and will reflect once the admin accepts the change. Hope you read the article and didn't get distracted by the error 😛

    A pet peeve of mine are those presentations that end with a black screen that displays "End of slide show, click to exit."

    For my presentations, my ending slide is a list of resources. I gave a presentation to my group about DB2 Explain and I wanted to include a little bit of humor at the end. I wish that I could put a table in this response.

    Usually, I close just before the references slide or at references / "Thank you" slide. Never shown the "End of slide - click to exit". Thought that the way most do it.

    Liked the humour part in your ending 🙂

    I would also recommend the closing slide include a url to download the presentation and code examples (most of the time stored on a blog). Usually a bit.ly url is best as you can choose to make it short and/or memorable.
