Business English Lesson – English for Presentations – Transition Phrases and Topics

This quick Business English Lesson will look at phrases that can be used when finishing one topic and moving on to the next item you want to talk about (transition phrases). Transitions are an important part of your presentation because they let the audience know that you are finished with what you are talking about and that you are moving on to talk about something else. We will also look at some phrases that you can use to tell the audience what you are going to talk about, so that they are prepared before you start giving the details about the topic.

Phrases that can be used to signal the end of the topic and move to new topic:
