Do you really need to make this presentation or could a memo suffice?

And the truth is, maybe the memo is the best solution for everyone.

But if you decide to present an idea, it is because you want to make change happen.

What action are you seeking?

Two types:

1. There’s already a goal and a set of commitments, and this is an update on how to maintain the effort to reach that goal.

2. The presenter wants to do something new or shift priorities.

In case 1, your presentation should focus on communicating the facts and changes we need to take action on.

Case 2, if you’re doing a presentation to change people’s minds, spare the boring facts and create the enthusiasm that drives change.
