How to Make Presentations That Teach and Transform

by Robert J. Garmston and Bruce M. Wellman

Table of Contents

Chapter 2. Five Presentation Stages

By now you've designed your presentation and are ready to take your good work to the stage. At this point, you need to consider a range of technical tips for carrying out each of the five stages of presentation—before the opening, during the opening, throughout the body of the presentation, during the closing, and after the close.

Before the Opening

The best presenters typically arrive early to complete final preparations for their performances. It's not unusual to see the most skilled speakers in a room a full hour before their presentation. Taking care of last-minute details helps presenters feel more confident and frees their mental energies to focus on what's important—the audience—once the session begins. Before the opening, good presenters are sure to attend to three areas: (1) the comfort and perspective of the audience, (2) the ambiance and utility of the presentation environment, and (3) the workspace for the presentation.
