Building Presentations Stage 3: Style

The third stage is all about style, what the ancients called rhetoric. This is where we need to hone and refine the ideas encapsulated in that outline and think about how we’ll present them. That might be coming up with a killer opening line; how and when we’ll vary pace; what we’ll emphasise; when we’ll use metaphor or analogy or introduce visuals, props or video. At this stage, we should also think about rehearsing, either on our own or asking a trusted colleague for feedback.
