The worst presentations waste time.
They start late, drone on too long and go over time.
If you are starting late, ask your host, "When do you want me to finish?" And then finish early. They will love you.
The measure of a good presentation is not how long you can speak. It is about how well you can get your message across in the shortest possible time.
Always be prepared to have your presentation time cut. Leave out that 5 minute story, extra point or extended Q & A.
