Have clear and loud voice. People will like your presentation only when they can hear you, for this you need to have a loud and crystal clear voice. You voice should be audible even to people sitting in the last corner seat. But this doesn’t mean you have to shout all through your presentation, see the difference.
Throw question to the audience. It is agreed to be a very good presentation when you ask questions to the listener. Interacting with the audience will help you gain their attention and even maintain their interest.

Give live examples. Make sure your presentation has loads of examples which can explain and prove each and every point of yours. So think of all the examples you can give to make your presentation successful.
Make it little humorous. You need to include some of the punches or humor in your presentation so that you can gain interest of the audience. The jokes should be according to the crowd who are listening to your presentation. Humor maintains the interest of the audience and keeps your presentation alive.
Keep a volunteer. Using a volunteer is always good because if you have a volunteer in the audience, you can effectively interact with them and hence keep you presentation healthy and very much interesting.
Keep it simple. See to it that your PowerPoint presentation is not too glamorous and jazzy.
