Why do we do it? Where do we do it? What do we offer? What do we hope to gain?
jot down a few goals you have for your presentation. feel free to borrow from this list or create your own.
I&#x2019;d like you to think about an upcoming presentation you&#x2019;re planning. What do you know about your audience? who are they, generally? Really, what is a day like for them? What do they worry about? what keeps them up at night? What are they passionate about?
What do they hope to get out of your presentation?
why does it matter? why should it matter? the toughest part of interdisciplinary dialogue
people like Steve Jobs believe your main idea should fit on a napkin, others, a post-it
returning to the list from earlier, what idea, action, question, do you hope your audience will walk away with?
turn to someone next to you and share what you think your big idea is. be prepared for them not to understand. spend a few minutes discussing your ideas and pay attention to the questions they ask.
