This session on preparing a presentation aims to help people to plan a presentation that will be interesting and useful to those that are being presented to. Presentations are often feared by people, but the fact is, they are part of every day life in business. Presentations are not always formal. Most are informal by way of team briefings, customer presentations or project updates. Regardless of the type, taking the time to prepare a presentation thoughtfully will always help to deliver a good result.

In particular, by the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Describe the characteristics of effective presentations
  • Identify the underlying purpose of a presentation and take this into account when deciding content
  • Use the right structure for different types of presentations to ensure that they get the result they want
  • Consider how the presentation will be delivered for maximum effect
