Section 2: Preparation

Preparing a presentation should always start by asking two fundamental questions.  

The rotated square

Which question should you ask yourself to design and prepare your presentation so that it will resonate with your audience.


When and where is your presentation due should affect the preparation. Not everything work best everywhere and every time. What is the most important difference between morning and afternoon? What when you are close to lunch? Fridays? What about the room set-up? And a very precious advice on how to avoid embarrassing situations! 


The 4 steps to prepare the topic. How should we prepare differently a presentation if the subject is new or trite? Tangible or intangible? How entitled are we to talk about it? How to set the guidelines for the next steps.


What are the best approaches to enunciate a topic? How to choose a proper one? What do when handling a controversial subject? What is the 5 steps approach?


How to sequence a presentation. What is important at the beginning and how to close.
