I find from my observations, many people are so overwhelmed with their daily business routine that it is difficult for them to properly plan for a basic presentation.

The questions that you propose one should ask are great questions. Often people don't take the time to even do that much.

The issue with poor presentations is the approach that is taken and the lack of planning before the PPT software is opened.

One basic approach that can improve one's presentation is to simply take a piece of paper and ask some very good questions similar to the ones you have stated in your blog.

Great post!

M.J. You are absolutely right. The presenters don't take the proper amount of time to prepare. And being too busy just isn't a good enough excuse. I feel that if people are going to spend and hour or two to listen to what I have to say, I had better be an entertainer and help them enjoy the time they are spending with me. If that means longer hours, starting early and finishing late, to prepare my presentation, then that's the price I must pay. Otherwise, I don't need to be doing the presentation.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.
David
