Presentation Planning Process

Your Message

What do you want to say? How do you want it said? Do you want to use humour, information, inspiration or persuasition?

Understand the Audience

Understand what your audience expects to gain from your knowledge and what they will take away from your presentation. Know how your topic is relevant and how it will benefit their needs.

Define the Topic

Presentation content is crucial to make your presentation meaningful. It must be accurate, factual, and well-organized.

Pick a Method

Having a clear understanding of your audience and a thorough knowledge of a topic is important in order to earn the attention of potential clients, and finding the best delivery method is vital to holding their interest.

Be Time Sensitive

A presentation that runs over time will easily lose audience attention. Since professionals spend a lot of time in meetings, they are probably on a pretty tight schedule and have to be somewhere else. Make sure that when you practice your presentation, you time yourself.

Sort Out Your content

After you've organized your slides and practised, you might find the content needs reorganization. Your presentation may flow better in a different order than you anticipated. Keeping in mind the presentation's order will help you remember where everything is.
