Appearance Counts
Books are judged by their covers, houses are appraised by their curb appeal, and people are initially evaluated on how they choose to dress and behave.

Types of Presentations
Presentations come in nearly as many forms as there are life situations. In the business world, there are sales presentations, informational and motivational presentations, first encounters, interviews, briefings, status reports, image-building "dog and pony shows," and, of course, the inevitable training sessions.

Strategies for Defining Your Audience
Before you plan your presentation, you have to define your audience. The following checklist will help you do this:

Tell 'Em What You're Gonna Tell 'Em
The first few words you utter will set the tone for your entire presentation. This is the part where you "tell 'em what you're gonna tell 'em." So it's imperative that you say something that will capture your audience's attention and give you rapport with the people.

Tone, Delivery: How to Engage the Audience
To build rapport means to develop a relationship, especially one of mutual trust or emotional affinity. This sounds like a daunting task.

Visuals
Did you know that most humans absorb more than 80 percent of what they learn through the sense of sight? That means if you show something to people, they are far more likely to remember it, at least for a while, than if you tell something to them.
