Essential Elements in Preparing an Oral Presentation

Knowing the Material

Nothing can make a speaker more confident than knowing the material. Leah had learned this truth from past oral presentations: the times she felt most confident were those when she had known the material most thoroughly and when she had anticipated carefully the questions her audience were likely to have. The former situation requires some research, even of a topic that the speaker knows well; the latter requires fitting the research to the audience analysis.

Leah realized that in this presentation, she would have to answer some very specific questions, ones that she was anticipating and that would require some more specific research. Again, she would have to concentrate on the weak areas of the program, or at least areas that the assessment team would consider weak, such as the counselor-client ratio in the outreach portion of the program.
