Figure Out Why You Are Presenting

Figure Out Why You Are Presenting

  • What is the function of your talk?  Are you trying to inform, persuade, inspire, or entertain.
  • What is your motivation for speaking

-Were you asked to speak?

-Were you ordered to speak?

-Do you want to speak?

  • What is your audience’s motivation for listening?

-Does the audience want to hear you?

-Have they been compelled to hear you?

-Will they listen?

Figuring out the answers to these questions will help you determine the tone and undertone of your talk.  It will help you know what material to include or leave out.  It will also help you know how much effort to direct toward rapport building.
