What should be the content of the last slide in a PowerPoint presentation - "Thank You" or "Q/A"?

    I standby Thank You. PP shows, are visual notes and extra info used by the speaker.. Sometimes, if you are at a meeting and other items ran long, the questions get cut. So Thank you, and I will be staying to answer any questions you might have.

    I agree with Larry Wall about Thank You! being the last slide--and might add a small but readable website under the logo, too.

    Suggestion: say "WHAT questions do you have for me?" rather than saying you're "open" to questions--better participation.

    Your points are on target, I always have a conclusion slide, but the last slide will be either a logo and thank you or thank you and any questions. I take questions throughout my presentations. However at some point the presentation must conclude.

    If your presentation was good, however, people might WANT to buy your book--just inform them without self-promoting. End with a Thank You slide, logo, and small (readable) website (from which they can buy the book if someone asks ;-) ).

    Agreed! Thanking the audience at the very end is paramount and common manners.

    I respectfully disagree. Good points, but still--the very last slide should be "Thank you"--your "gift" to the audience. A logo and perhaps a small but readable website at the bottom, too, if applicable. I agree with Larry Wall's reasonings.

    A SMALL (but readable) website might also be appropriate at the very bottom of that same last logo slide (to which I would definitely add a "Thank You" also, as Larry Wall has said).
