Understand why you are delivering your message as a presentation. We deliver presentations because we need to align people around a common goal to achieve challenging objectives. What do you want your audience to do after your presentation?
Map out your actions from the present to your presentation. When is your first draft? When do you rehearse? The secrets to good presentations are often planning and practice.
Consider how it feels when you’re in the audience for a presentation. Which past speakers and presentations do you remember? Think of the best and the worst.
