Rapid Fire

You’ve got an hour long presentation to facilitate in 24 hours. Where do you start?

Stop, breathe, and answer these rapid fire questions.

Who’s going to be in the room? What do they need to hear? What’s worked before? What doesn’t? Why should they listen to your presentation?

What’s the desired outcome? What do you want them to know or do? What are 3-5 presentation objectives?

What information can you gather that supports your objectives? What activities can you use to create engagement and interactivity?

Chances are you’ve done this before and well. That’s probably the reason you were asked in the first place. Even if this is your first time creating a presentation under short notice, these questions are a great place to start. Either way, you’ve got this!
