    Red face when I start the presentation or something


    I've got something to ask suddenly, as I posted new thread.When I start the presentation, writing, or just talk, and I just want to go into the topic right away, how can I say? I've found some expressions in searching engine in Korea and it says, 'come straight to the point, Let's cut to the chase, talk turkey, get down to the business, and get to the point.'

    uhm,, is it okay to use them all in both formal meetings and informal talks? and is there any other expressions for the situation? (in formal and informal situations)

    please, let me know about it.

    In a formal situation, 'come straight to the point' is the only one of your suggestion that really fits, in my opinion.
