Finally, tell them at the end of the presentation what you want them to do with the conclusion.

PowerPoint Tip: Sequence of Information matters

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

For example, a typical persuasive sales presentation would list each feature of the product or service and then present the conclusion that the product or service is the best to solve the problem at hand. The audience selects what data they need to hear in order to convince themselves that your conclusion is valid.
