Cues are like visual and verbal sign posts. They help your audience navigate your presentation and figure out what to expect next.
You can give visual cues in your slidedeck. Notice, for example, how each major point in this presentation begins with a slide that shows a number. That’s a cue.
You can give verbal cues as well. “First…” “Next…” “By contrast…” Those are cues.
Use cues like these to refocus your audience’s attention.
