Include a title slide, with your name on it, introducing the presentation.
Include only the major bullet points for each issue on the presentation slides.
Include no more than 15 slides (not counting title page or references list).

Use your narration to provide the supporting rationale for each major bullet point.
Include a script of your narration in the Notes section of PowerPoint.
Include a clear summary of your major conclusions and any recommendations on the conclusion slide.
