Preparation is the Key

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?)
