Build a bridge

Fellow speaker,

According to World champion speaker Mark Brown, you can create transitions by using bridge:
  • Words (e.g., "Similarly...")
  • Phrases (e.g., "On the other hand...")
  • Sentences (e.g., "At that point, I started thinking differently.")
Bridging,

Creating a contrast

Fellow speaker,

According to professional presentation coach Nancy Duarte, the best way to keep your audience's interest in your presentation is to use contrast to vary your slides from time to time. First, establish a pattern and then find a way to break that pattern to bring back attention to your slides.

Contrasted,
