14 Words You Shouldn’t Use in Your Presentation

1217108382RtPnD4Though it’s important to make your presentation conversational and real, there are still some words that are better left unsaid. Below is a list of words that can suck energy from your presentation so try to avoid these as much as possible:

  1. Stuff
  2. You guys
  3. Bucks
  4. Second to none
  5. At the end of the day
  6. Without further ado
  7. Pretty unique
  8. Very, very unique
  9. Truth be told
  10. Moving on
  11. Going forward
  12. To be honest
  13. Okay
  14. Whole bunch

It’s true that your audience doesn’t really listen to every word you say when you speak or present but there are just certain words that can distract them from absorbing the essence of your presentation. So avoid these at all costs.
