Why It’s Important to Start Big When Presenting

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????When making presentations, Ellen Finkelstein advises us to start big. Here’s her logic which I think we should all consider if we want to make a positive impact on our audience:

Starting presentations big will give your audience the overall picture and context. This helps them better understand your message because they see the bigger picture right away.

Below are some ways on how you can start your presentation big:

  1. Explain why you came to do this presentation. What was the problem? What is the audience’s need?
  2. Discuss the context in your industry, in current research, in the economy — whichever context is relevant.
  3. Start with your conclusions — an executive overview, the summary of benefits, the bottom line
