Exercises

1: Give an example of a transition.
2: What are transitions and why should you use them?
3: Read the following scene. Mary (Reg. Vice President of Sales) and Nathan (Account Executive) are sitting in Mary’s office.

Nathan: (neutral) Mary, I wanted to thank you for looking over my presentation outline for the Peterson project. I really want to make sure I do a good job.

Mary: (taking out the outline) Sure, no problem. I think it looks good. My only concern is that there aren’t any transitions included here. You’ll want to be sure to use them because they help your audience follow the flow of your presentation.

Nathan: (interested) Oh that sounds good. What do I need to include in the transition?

Mary: (explaining) A good way to transition between your main points is to review one point and introduce the next one. I usually say something like, (making up an example) ‘Now that I’ve explained the potential problems, I’ll show you how to avoid them.’
