How to Organize your Presentations

Tools like Visualbee can help you gain an edge in your once bland presentations, but good design needs to be taken to the next level in terms of organisation. The audience processes your speech and ideas more easily if you lay down a well-defined organizational pattern: an introduction, body, and conclusion sections, each with clear transitions. When organising your speech, think how well it suits your purpose, audience, and constraints such as the occasion, time limit, and venue.

Introduction:

Your introduction should grab the audience’s attention in the first few minutes. Use lurid language, imagery, and interesting facts to keep your spectators interested, but exercise caution when using humour since it can backfire too. For your opening, you could cite a startling statistic, pose an open-ended question, tell a story or relate your topic to the audience to establish common ground. Clearly state the main idea or thesis of the speech. As a transition, preview points you will mention in the body of the speech. This preview will tell the audience that the end of the introduction is near and the body of the speech is about to commence.

Body:

The body of your speech is where you present your main points. Each main point should be supported by information or research. You can use examples, narratives, testimony, facts, or statistics, etc. Several common and useful patterns can help you organize your main points. Choose a pattern that suits your purpose, your audience’s needs, and your specific speaking situation. Show the audience that there is a need for change and that the situation at hand is dire by using statistics, examples, testimony, etc. Do offer a detailed solution to the problem you just presented. Help the audience visualize the advantages of your proposed solution.

Conclusion:

In your conclusion, review the main points and the basic idea of the speech. End with a note of finality and challenge the audience to respond and think about your ideas. Do keep in mind that your conclusion should not be too long.
