Part II: Planning Your Presentation > Eight Steps to Preparing Your Presentatio...

Chapter 6. Eight Steps to Preparing Your Presentation

Part of planning a presentation means that you must ask yourself why, not what. The “what” part will be answered when you begin to organize your thoughts. In the beginning, you should concern yourself with why you are giving a presentation to a particular audience. The answer to this question should help you plan your presentation.

For example, you have been asked to give a presentation to a group of managers in your company on next year’s departmental budget. Don’t start writing down what you expect to say. Instead, ask yourself what you want to accomplish with your presentation. What is your opinion about the topic? Will you be asking for a budget increase, presenting a plan to increase company revenue or simply asking the audience to consider a new idea? What’s in it for the audience members if they do what you ask?
