Components of an Effective
Presentation
Purpose
Format
Data
Conclusion
So What
Restate
Tag Ending
PURPOSE:
Define task.
"The purpose of this presentation is ... “
Describe what the original problem was
and what you were asked to do.
FORMAT:
What is the presentation going to do?
"This presentation recommends
o ...
o ... "
Tell them what you are going to say. This is
the agenda. Effective presentations use this
to outline the critical things that will be
covered, not copy the grading sheets.
DATA:
Information and data about the problem.
"You should note the following facts in
support of these recommendations...”
This is background. Spend only the
time here that you absolutely need.
CONCLUSION:
What does the data tell you?
"The conclusions to be drawn from these
facts are ..."
This is the setup, not the final conclusion.
SO WHAT:
What should the audience do?
"This means that we must ..."
What do these recommendations mean
to the audience? This is the part of the
presentation that your audience cares
most about. Try to spend most of your
time here.
RESTATE:
Summarize, preferably in action terms.
"In summary ...”
Wrap up the meeting.
Repeat your critical points.
List any action items.
Indicate what happens next.
Thank your clients.
TAG ENDING:
Verbal hook for your audience.
"In one sentence we say ..."
This is generally not done in formal
written communication. It is very
important in oral presentations.
Presentation Keys
Time the sections. Focus on “So What?”
Customize the presentation with logos or
names for your audience.
Use graphics effectively. Graphics stick in
people’s mind, but too much is clutter.
Use motion sparingly and sound never.
Rehearse. Try to use the same equipment
and room you will use.
It’s not what you said but
what they heard.
