When embarking on the quest to create a presentation of any sort there should first and foremost be some sort of theme which is evident throughout the presentation. Having this common element present will ensure the target audience leaves the experience completely sure of what the presenter was trying to convey.
What Is The Point
When the theme has been established and incorporated into the presentation at suitable intervals the desired reactions will be able to be garnered and thus create the connective responses. Keeping the theme throughout also helps to remind the audience of the reason for the presentation and its hopeful result.
This also helps to create minimal confusion especially if the presentation content requires a lot of technical material. Working on the various aspects of the presentation to ensure the message is clearly conveyed is important and these may include the general speech outline, the drafts that constitute the content which may have to be doctored often to ensure the underlying message is evident, the feedback that can be solicited during the presentation and then the final version.
Keeping the theme of what is meant to be conveyed at the fore front of the whole presentation at all times. Every point included in the presentation should ideally point towards what is intended to be conveyed as this would then make the theme clear and consistent to everyone listening.
Most effective presentations should be able to keep the attention of the audience by trying to engage the audience into participating and being interactive thus successfully conveying the intended message.
