Principles of Preparing and Giving Presentations 1 Planning a Presentation Planning a presentation before you create it improves the quality of your presentation, makes your presentation more effective and enjoyable, and in the long run saves you time and effort. As you plan your presentation, you should ask yourself several questions. What is my purpose or objective for this presentation? Who is the audience and what is the situation for my presentation? What information does that audience need? What is the best format for presenting the information contained in this presentation? Using Text Effectively Think of your overheads or slides as a visual map to your oral presentation. Show your organization by using overviews, by making headings larger than subheadings, by numbering steps to show sequence, and by bulleting lists. Use incomplete sentences. Omit unnecessary articles, pronouns, and adjectives. Follow the A 6 6 Rule @ : Use 6 items per screen, 6 words per item. Keep phrases parallel whenever possible. Make sure your text is appropriate for your purpose and the audience.
