Let’s face it: often a message is best delivered live, in the flesh, scanning the front row. Prepared remarks at the membership conference. A Power Point for major donors. Stump speech for the Rotary clubs. The audiences may be modest in size, but the opportunity to turn them into donors, activists and supporters is huge. Don’t wing it.
Tell stories, not issues.
Choose one point that you want them to remember later – and build around it.
Don’t go on. Like show business, leave them wanting more.
Know your audience.
Create slides illustrate your points, literally.
Don’t confuse your slides for your outline.
Share your wisdom widely, online.
