  Abstract: A presentation can be a speech, a panel discussion, a debate, a skit, a display, a demonstration, or a dramatic or musical performance. It may be designed to stimulate talk about an issue, educate people on a topic, or generate action in a community. Planning a presentation should begin by considering why the presentation is being made, what information is to be communicated, who is the audience, how much time will be allotted, whether handouts and audiovisual aids will be needed, what methods of reinforcing the message would be useful, what outcomes are desired, and what special needs, concerns, or situations are relevant. The bulletin presents six steps to help answer these questions and begin planning a presentation: (1) consider the outcome desired; (2) address special concerns; (3) develop a presentation outline; (4) be familiar with the physical setting; (5) understand timing and other requirements; and (6) present information in a focused and concise way. To make an effective presentation, know the subject matter, know the audience, manage the direction of the presentation, and encourage participation. Note, resources
