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. Give people “signposts” that help them follow your thinking. For example say, “These are three tips,” or “These are five trends.” Your audience will be more engaged.
