Cultural tip!

If you are giving a presentation in the US, you might get some questions in the middle of the presentation so be prepared for that and let the audience know if you want to take the questions at the end. Listeners might also challenge your points and directly disagree with you. Be prepared for that. Know your material. Be confident, but be open to input from others.
