Productivity, Guest Columnist When you have a presentation to make, it's tempting to ask yourself right away, "What am I going to say? How much information can I fit into the allotted time? Which visuals should I use?" So, you may immediately dive into the process of selecting material, developing an outline, creating slides and rehearsing content. As an effective presenter, your first step toward making a powerful, persuasive presentation is to define your audience. Defining your audience means finding out who they are. The following questions serve as a helpful guide for defining the people of your audience. What are their professional roles, titles and responsibilities? By asking these questions and customizing your presentation based upon the answers, you show the participants that you know them and want the presentation to benefit them. The same advice Aristotle gave in 380 B.C. still holds today: "The fool persuades me with his reasons; the wise man persuades me with my own." 1.
