6. Presentation planner

What’s in this chapter for you?

  • How to plan for your presentation
  • What to do after you’ve starred

Given the vast range of possible types of presentation, we can’t cover everything here. However, there are some basic rules which apply to all kinds of presentation. This section gives you a step-by-step check list to use in planning any forthcoming presentation. Remember, the secret of a persuasive presentation is planning ahead.

If your presentation needs to be reasonably complex, you should ideally allow yourself two weeks for planning.

As well as identifying what preparation you need to do, you should work out a realistic schedule for when you will have completed the various elements.
