Set Your Goal and Keep It Before You

Decide what it is you would like to happen as a result of your presentation. The four main goals of any communication are to inform, to request for an action, to persuade, and to build relationship.

Decide which of these goals you are planning to achieve. Let your listeners know what you want them to do near the beginning of your talk and again at the end.

Present your basic idea and give them an outline of your presentation that would lead you and your audience to the desired result.





How you give your talk can be more important than what you say.

Do More than Lecture

Short lectures or verbal presentations of information need to be enhanced and supported with visuals and activities directly related to the information being presented. In the classroom, the teacher can complement his information by assigning extra study or independent practice. In a workshop, activities are more immediate small groups, games, buzz sessions, guided practice, role play, brainstorming. The idea is to engage the learners and stimulate them to participate in their own learning.

Provide for every type of learner visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Provide for everyone with things to see, hear and do. You'll stimulate your learners, whether in the classroom or meeting room. They'll enjoy it more, learn more and retain it longer.1
