    I would recommend reading Presenting Data Effectively by Stephanie Evergreen. It’s the best resource for learning how to keep your audience more engaged in what you are presenting. That is the key, keeping them into what you are saying. It’s a great read, a great reference for presentations and their set up! stephanieevergreen.com is her site for her info.
