There is an age-old saying when it comes to presenting:
‘Tell them what you are going to tell them,
tell them, tell them what you have told them.’
This principle has stood the test of time. It works. By outlining the areas that you will be talking about it provides the audience with a structure. This makes it easier for them to follow your presentation. At the end of your presentation, do not forget to summarise the key point(s) and then make a call to action.
Once you have made the call to action end the presentation. Do not be tempted to add extra bits that you have thought of as you were going along, or pieces that you inadvertently missed earlier in the presentation.
