3 Steps to Prepare an Effective Presentation


Delivering a successful presentation requires careful preparation. Next time you’re getting ready to present, follow these three steps.

  • Create a clear narrative. Don’t start by creating slides. First get your story down, and design slides or collect data to illustrate that compelling narrative.
  • Do a dry run. Read through the slides aloud. Do it seated in front of your computer screen so that you don’t have to think about your body language.
  • Rehearse without slides. Finally, do a run-through while standing in a vacant conference room without your slides. This will allow you to concentrate on the story, as well as your eye contact, gestures, posture, and voice.
