I’ve Been Asked to Speak and I Don’t Have a Presentation!

Many good advisors are asked to speak to groups.  They don’t always give you a lot of time to prepare… and they all have different time limitations and topics they want covered.  So, how do you put together a good presentation, quickly?

The best place to start is at the end.  Yep, the end.  Prepare your summary and conclusion slide first.  List between 3 and 5 topics on the slide.  Psychology has shown that most people are attracted to presentations with 3 main points… you can go as high as 5 points… but anything more than that… you will actually be hurting yourself.

Presentations with over 5 points will generally be viewed as confusing and boring.

Now that you have your summary slide… simply build your presentation around the topics you’ve decided to cover.
