The 3 Most Important Stages In Your Presentation

If you want to deliver a presentation on a particular topic and you have to prepare yourself for it you should make sure that you go through several very important stages in order to craft a compelling, persuasive and useful speech for your listeners.

The stages your presentation has to go through are the introduction, the unveiling and the wrap up, but before you even start thinking about those three you have to pick the topic. The topic will help you craft the title of your presentation.

You have to answer one single question and the question is this - Why is this so important to share?

Why is this so unique to anything else that you could share?

Once you know the answer to this you can now start listing the major discussion points that you want to share with your audience.

Stage 1 - The Introduction

The introduction could vary in time it could be like 3 minutes, or around 5 minutes depending on your presentation topic, length and discussion points.

In the introduction you have to make sure that you talk about your ideal outcome or best result for the listeners. This is the so called "promise"

Once you pick your promise/best outcome you have to answer the question "Why?" as you will most probably be asked this one by the audience during the presentation or when you have a Q&A at the end of it.

Stage 2 - The Unveiling

This is the stage where the presenter has to share his/her wisdom, knowledge and experience with the crowd. And of course the right time for you to shed more light on the previously picked key discussion points.

Tell the people about a compelling story or a lesson that you can share with them that will further support your topics and ideas.

Stage 3 - The Wrap Up

This is the perfect time for any presenter to stress on the topic or thesis he wants to make clear. The right time for you to talk about the number one takeaway you want the listeners to remember.

And last but not least, make sure you tell the audience about the single most important action that they can take right away to implement the knowledge and experience you have just shared.

Having gone through these stage will not only put you as an expert presenter under the spotlight but will also provide value to your listeners that will make them feel they have received valuable and useful information that they can use right away...
