Bangalore: Recently the IT industry has been subjected to a lot of up’s and down’s. And because of that IT giants are right now a bit cautious in tech-investments. This alertness has created a massive shrink in recent IT budgets.

So by that more and more leaders are now developing their presentation skills, as it’s clear that a strong presentation can always lead to a good sign.

So here are 5 tips for IT heads and professionals on how to give a perfect presentation.

Rick Gilbert, founder of PowerSpeaking, an executive training and coaching firm in California, says that "C-level executives tend to be very bright and can change the timing and the focus of the meeting in an instant. If a mid-level manager goes in and doesn't expect that, they can be completely knocked off base."
