Not quite a master at giving presentations? Let structure be your best friend. Take a moment to think about all the presentations you’ve seen. What made the best and worst presentations either useful or disappointing?
Humans instinctively crave a path to follow. Before preparing, take time to seriously map out your thoughts in a clear and organized way. Countless speakers underestimate this important step.
Be deliberate about how your information all fits together. Giving listeners signposts, like “Three New Trends” or “Five Tips for Success” will help them follow along. Your audience will be more engaged. They’ll also be grateful.
