  • Do not overlook the opportunity to present your credentials – The audience, no matter how well you think they know you, will try to figure out why “YOU” are delivering this message and what “THEY” should careFess up to your biases as to the position you are taking relative to what you are about to present and the conclusion you will draw Get to the heart of the audience and to the heart of the matter – quickly. Elicit an emotional connection between you, them and the content/subject matterYou must build the case logically, in order and in greater and greater magnitude – seeking concurrence ’buy” in along the way along the way. Think if the objections you may encounter and be prepared to overcome them.
  • Really only to reason to give a presentation or only two main presentation types. Inform a community about something they need to know , want to knw or have asked to knowPersuade a community or person or group to take a particular course of action. Forensic speeches focus on dissecting past events. Examples include trials and failure analysis.Deliberative presentations focus on future decisions. Examples include legislation and bid/no bid decisions.Epideictic presentations focus on people, current events, and values. Examples include retirement speeches and award dinners.Cause and Effect – directly explaining a the relationship between a condition and a required outcomeAn assumption of cause and effect is that your reasoning is correct, i.e. the relationship is trueBe wary of analysis that asserts cause and effect that hasn’t used sufficient evidence for the conclusionAntecedent/Consequence – showing the logical outcome of a set of circumstancesAntecedent/Consequence is a less rigorous form of Cause and Effect. Essentially it asserts there is a reason to recognize that because the conditions are present the consequence will probably occur even though the consequence is not required by or caused by the antecedentContraries – Presenting the opposite of an assertionThe soup is hot. The soup is cold.Contraries require that you offer an alternate position and may require evidenceContradictions – Presenting the denial of an assertionThe soup is hot. The soup is not hot.Contradictions do not require you to offer an alternate position but may require evidence
  • Subject – You should know the subject matter or someone else should be presentingCentral Theme – The focal point of your presentation. For example if the main subject is management, you could choose one of the following as your central theme: Management for the future, Conflict Management, Management vs. Leadership, Identify key trends in Management Objective – What should the audience believe or be prepared to do when you’re done? One good way to clarify this is to write it down. For example: Every manager should be prepared for conflict management. Rationale – The answer to the question why or how. If your presentation is one of belief then you will answer the question of why. If your presentation is one of enabling then you will answer the question of how. For example:Belief – Every manager should be prepared for conflict management (why?) because of the recent conflicts that have come to the surface in the organization.Action – Every manager can respond to situations requiring conflict management (how?) by learning to recognize the signs of escalating conflict in an organization.Evaluation – Checking your presentation to ensure that you will meet your goal and the needs of your audience.
