Introduction to Preparation is Key
Savvy speakers know that effective speeches actually begin long before the first word is uttered. As in many things, the key to a successful presentation is in preparation, and this Focus explores the activities that can precede a memorable speech. Such activities include a venue checklist, must-have items to have with you at the lectern, and the all-important Pro-Program Questionnaire.
Of course, doing these activities won't guarantee that your presentation will be a success. But it will certainly improve your chances of success! (And don't you want to do everything you can to improve your odds?)
