Leaders like brievity - short and to the point

Whenever you want to make a point to the intellectuals, you make it brief and to the point as mentioned in the holy bible.  My boss conveyed this great message to me on making compelling presentations to leaders. 

That brings me to the point of eliminating the unwanted, things that aren't necessary in any conversation.  You need to eliminate the clutter and focus on the underlying message and the message you want to convey.

Make it short and simple to understand.  Within two minutes your idea you strike a chord with the intellectual.  Go with the half rule if you are making a compelling presentation to a leader.  Divide the presentation into half and see if you can convey the same message.
