The Individual Presentation - Content
Each presentation should contain five parts (and probably a minimum of five slides):
  1. Introduction: The title of the talk, your name.
  2. Background: Why you chose this topic. Why it is important. What the audience should get out of this talk.
  3. The Body: The real guts of the talk. (This is where you might have several slides but not more than four!)
  4. Conclusions: Confirm why this is an important topic. Summarize the major points.
  5. Closing: Let everyone know that you are done. A preacher gets away with this by closing with a prayer. In your case you need a LAST sentence that starts off "And finally ..." or something similar. Do not be left there with everyone expecting you to say something else.
