It is is been a while since I last wrote here. If you are a regular reader, you might have ask "Hey, what happened?" The silence has caught your attention. Pauses in a presentation work in the same way. Making a pause forces the audience to focus on you. Think about it, even if the person on the back reading email will look at you asking himself if the talk is over. There is your chance to relaunch and engage him or her in your presentation. A pause is a powerful attention-grabbing tool, so use it, pause.
