Thinking of your talk as a gift

The foremost advice for making a great talk is to build your talk with your audience in mind. To do this in a powerful way, ask yourself what gift you are giving to your audience. 

If it doesn't feel like a gift after you rehearsed your talk, there's more work to do.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Audiences love the chance to feel something, whether it is transformational, funny, sad, or any other emotions.

Find out in advance what problems your audience is struggling with. Then talk to your audience in a way that demonstrates you understand their problem and present a clear solution.

Sometimes you will speak to an audience of people who are all struggling with the same issues. 

People want to change something because of you.

When you deliver a talk, your audience wants to learn something compelling enough to move them into action.

Sometimes you might reveal a problem the audience didn't know they had.
Provide some direction and a concrete plan for how to start dealing with the issue.
