2. Questions

you ask yourself

? Who is your audience? What message do you want to give them? ? What result do you want from the presentation? ? When planning your presentation, think about who you are speaking to and what effect you want to achieve (giving information, persuading, making recommendations)

3. Involve your audience
? people remember only a little of what they hear, a little more of what they see, but most when they participate.
? Talk to your audience directly. ? Use "you" (eg "as you know... ") and give examples based on their particular situation. ? If possible, get ideas and feedback from them to make your presentation more relevant.

4. Use visual aids to add variety and emphasis, but not too many!

? Flips, slides and graphics add variety and impact to your presentation. ? But they must be interesting and, please, only a few! ? Use headings and short bullet points, not lines and lines of text. ? Don't read them, speak about them. Use them to create a nice surprise...

5 Begin and end powerfully.
? People remember the first and last things that they hear. ? So make sure you make a strong impact at the beginning and leave them with something to remember you by.

6 Reinforce your message
Say what you're going to say, then say it, then remind them of what you said.
? Use the introduction at the beginning to prepare your audience: explain what you are going to tell them about and give them a short overview of the different parts of the presentation. This will help them to follow each part more easily. At the end of your presentation, remind them of the essential points again.
