Some “sentence routines” you can use for presentation. This list shrank from several longer lists that I found on the internet. Credit goes to the individuals who originally shared them (sorry, I did not try hard to trace their sources).
I’m glad you could all get here.
I’m glad to see so many people here.

Right, let’s get started.
Thank you very much, Prof. Fawcett, for your very kind/gracious introduction/invitation.
Can people in the back of the room hear me clearly?
Is my voice loud enough?
Can you hear me if I am away from the microphone?
Dim the lights, darken the room a little more.
Could you please turn on the lights, please?
Now, we can have the lights on.
the topic of my presentation is…
Today’s topic is…
Today we are here to talk about…Before we start, I’d like you to meet my team members…
Let’s take a brief look at today’s agenda…
Just to give you a brief overview.
there are five main aspects to this topic (…the first, … the second, …a third, …another, … the final)
I am going to examine these topics in the following order (…first, …next, …after that, …finally)
I’ve divided my talk into five parts…
I’m going to start with a general overview and then focus on this particular problem (…in general, …more particularly).
I want to start with this particular topic, and then draw some more general conclusions from it (…specifically, … in a wider context)
Take a moment and think of…
important to all of us, help solve a problem
By a show of hands, how many of you own a car?
During the next ten minutes, I shall…
I know that time is short, so I intend to keep this brief
There’s an important point to be made here.
Please allow me to examine/explain this matter in more detail
I will not go into detail on it.
I am not going to spend too much time on it.
Let’s go through the following points very rapidly.
OK, let’s move on. Well, let’s move on to the next point.
We will now come to the second problem.
That brings me to my second point.
Next, I would like to turn to a more difficult problem.
I think we can move on to the next slide.
Let me show you the next slide.
To go back to what I was saying earlier, I think/you may be aware of/that..
At this point I would like to refer (again) to the question of methods in the first part of my lecture.
Are there any questions you’d like to ask at this point?
I’ll be saying more about this in a minute.
I’ll deal with it later.
I shall tell you in detail shortly.
To digress a bit.
This slide demonstrates …
On this slide, you can see…
This curve/figure/table/digram/picture/flow-chart in this slide shows…
This figure is taken from.., by Dr. Li.
This diagram is after that of Prof. Wang with some modification
The first of such experiments began in 2000, rather than 1999.
May I have the lights, I mean the slides.
The temperature increased, I shall say decreased.
The population is 13 million, sorry, 31 million.
As you can see from the first row, excuse me, the second row, that the output increased two fold.
So, to sum up?
That brings me to the end of my talk.
I am afraid that we are running out of time, so we had better stop here
That concludes our presentation.
Thank you for your attention.
save your questions till the end.
If you have any questions, I will be pleased to answer them at the end of the presentation.
Don’t hesitate to interrupt me if you have a question or i
Can I come back to that point later?
We will go into details later.
I am afraid there’s no easy answer to that one…
Yes, that’s a very good point.
That’s a tricky question.
I think we have time for just one more question.
