An event at which a topic is explained by a set of presenters to an audience. Presentations are a ways of communicating ideas and information to a group. When preparing a presentation one should consider:

  • Content: It contains information that people need. Presentations must account for how much information the audience can absorb in one sitting
  • Structure: It has a logical beginning, middle, and end. It must be sequenced and paced so that the audience can understand it
  • Packaging: It must be well prepared, with a presentation the pace is set by the presenter
  • Human Element: A good presentation will be remembered because it has a person attached to it

Each presentation should focus on its goals, these could be:

  • Inform:
  • Teach:
  • Persuade:
  • Entertain:

(other options Learn, Teach, Question, Remind)

What do you want from audience? What do you want audience to remember? What is the audience's main concern?
