PersonalWhat You SayHave one or two goals no more for your presentation; e.g. educate / inform / persuade / entertain.You need rock-solid knowledge of the larger topic:e.g. the whole category not just the brandToo much info as bad as too littleUse emphasis (intonation and use of words also) sparingly and correctly not everything is really importantFocus! Don't wander off on a tangentBuild retention through (varied) repetitionPut flesh on the bones of your visual presentation with examples, anecdotes, explanationsAvoid insider jokes, tailor your words to your audience
