Initial Planning Before you begin preparing the presentation, you'll need to determine: The type of talk you will be expected to give: Will this be an informal chat, or a more formal presentation? The composition of the audience: Will you be speaking to a general audience or specialists? How many people are expected to attend?

Initial Planning Prepare yourself based on the time allotted for the talk. A short talk needs to be very clear and to address the topic directly. Is question time included? Expectations for information content: Is there a specific purpose for having you give a talk? Clarify the expectations beforehand and plan to address them during the presentation.

Preparation Start preparing far in advance by thinking through what needs to be said. Attempt to identify problems or questions the audience may have. Address them in the talk, before the audience has a chance to think of these things themselves.

Preparation Retention of information by the audience is reduced as a talk proceeds, if you do want to make a series of points (7 would me a maximum), organize them from the most to the least important. That way, the audience is more likely to remember the important points later.
