The Secret Ingredient in Presentation Wow

If you’re like most people, when you know you’re going to give a presentation, you want to know how long you’ll be expected to talk in front of your audience.

Once you have that piece of information, you start planning to “fill the allotted time slot.” You look for statistics, stories, and stuff to back up your message.

That’s the sure path to T M I, or “too much information.”

Great presenters approach the whole project differently. They spend as much time thinking about how to get their audience to even care about their topic, as they do preparing their message.

If no one cares, it doesn’t matter what you say.

If people care about what you’re saying, the mistakes you make don’t matter.
