When we are giving a presentation, there are certain key words we use to ’signpost’ different stages in our presentation. These words are not difficult to learn but it is absolutely essential that you memorize them and can use them when you are under pressure giving a presentation.
When you want to make your next point, you ‘move on’.
When you want to change to a completely different topic, you ‘turn to’.
When you want to give more details about a topic you ‘expand’ or ‘elaborate’.
When you want to talk about something which is off the topic of your presentation, you ‘digress’.
When you want to refer back to an earlier point, you ‘go back’.
To just give the outline of a point, you ’summarize’.
To repeat the main points of what you have said, you ‘recap’.
For your final remarks, you ‘conclude’.
