How to Avoid Making a Bad Presentation

pushing againstWe sometimes get so wrapped up in making a perfect presentation that it just ends up a lot worse for our efforts. Dan and Chip Heath aim to alleviate our concerns by addressing some of the biggest problems.

Just remember your audience will get the gist of it either way. Secondly, edit! Comprehensive is good—succinct is better. Finally, make your audience want to see what happens next. Craft a mystery. Make them wonder how the dots connect, and then provide the answers. Do not just present. Conduct too.
