2. Short and simple – No matter how complicated your topic is, make is short and sweet.

3. Credible information – Always based your claims on facts and proofs.

4. Videos & images – use videos and images to support your presentation and to make it more interesting and engaging.

5. Passion – When you are passionate about what you preach, it will shine through and people will believe you more and see you as more credible.
