Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Determining your main message, part of Management: Top Tips.
- Now, my first presentation tip…and this is possibly the most important thing…is to decide what your one main message is of your talk.…So if I just did a talk about my trip to Australia,…it would all be very interesting maybe…but what is the one main message?…So I need to decide.…Am I going to say that Australia is better than you think…or that it's different to what you might think…or that you really should go?…Now, you may say those aren't that different but they are…and it's very important to decide…what your message is and really hammer it home.…
In fact, design your talk around your one message.…I'll give you one more example.…Suppose I was going to talk about…the history of the company that you're coming to visit.…What's the message?…Is it that the company has grown a lot recently…or the company's been around a long time and is very stable…or that we are different to other companies?…I need to decide what my message is…and then design my talk around that.…So that's the first thing you must ask yourself…
