Taking presentations to their conclusion
Die letzten fünf Minuten Ihrer Präsentation

Grab their attention!

Put yourself in the shoes of the audience for a moment. You hear the signal that the presentation is coming to an end. Suddenly, you start thinking of the coffee and biscuits waiting out in the corridor (you are sure that the tea-lady has been clattering the cups for the last five minutes) and you start earnestly looking interested in the presenter. After all, it won't take long before she finishes now. And you might as well listen to the last five minutes. This scenario is not far from the truth, as we all know. In fact, an audience starts by being focused and attentive. Their attention will inevitably drop off or slump during the middle parts of a talk - but those last five minutes will be electrifying as everyone collectively salivates over the idea of food waiting outside, the chance to stretch one's legs or make a phone call.

Cash in on this fact and signal clearly that you are about to come to the end. Do not waste the opportunity by springing the end as a surprise on your listeners.
