What’s the Point?

What’s the Point? October 2020

The first question is “What do I want my listeners to think, feel, and/or do differently when I am done?” Do you want them to change their position on an issue? Do you want them to get excited about your cause? Do you want them to take some sort of action? Be specific here.

Next, ask yourself, “What is the purpose of my presentation? Given my answer to the first question, what does that mean I have to do in my speech?”
