Your Presentation Must Have A Goal

I just attended another boring presentation that went nowhere. Although I liked the presenter, his presentation was just another information dump that had no meaning.

The first thing to do when preparing a presentation is to clearly define your goal. In other words, what do you want your audience to think, feel, or do differently after your presentation? Then, wrap everything around that goal!
