How to Close a Presentation


When it is time to finish your presentation, make sure that all your points have been made and you have given all the information you wish to give. You might want to refresh your audience's memory on your most important or key points, so use the opportunity to recap on some of the most important information. You can do that with the following phrases:

So, as I said, the main takeaways from this presentation are…

So, just to go over the main points…

If I were to ask you to go home with one thought after this, it would be…

The most important point to remember is…

Or, you might like to gradually bring things to a close by letting people know you are approaching the end. It's always useful to leave the audience with a final thought, or something for them to think about to encourage future engagement and to leave the door open for them to contact you in the future:

Unfortunately, we are running out of time…

I’m going to wrap this up with a final thought.

I’m going to finish on this…

It’s time for me to bring this to a close…

So, to wrap up…

I’d like to thank you all for coming…

It’s time for me to leave you, but before I go…

You might want to share information on how people can reach you after the presentation:

If you need to get in touch, you can visit our website.

My e-mail address is here, if you would like to share any thoughts.

My personal contact information is…

I’d be happy to discuss this with you in more depth over a coffee at the bar/over lunch.

You should leave your presentation on a high, with your audience inspired and intrigued to find out more. You might consider using some upbeat music or a powerful image as you leave the limelight.
