Department of Justice, Washington, DC. Office of Justice Programs.; National Crime Prevention Council, Washington, DC.
A presentation is a way of communicating information to an audience. A presentation can be a speech, a panel discussion, a debate, a skit, a display, a demonstration, or even a dramatic or musical performance. For example, by telling the audience about particular crime prevention techniques or subjects, the presenter equips them with the tools to lead safer lives. This bulletin provides step-by-step techniques and proven methods of planning and conducting an effective presentation that will capture an audience's interest and motivate them to help implement a particular plan of action. The following techniques are featured: (1) consider the outcome you want; (2) address special concerns; (3) develop a presentation outline; (4) be familiar with the physical setting; (5) understand timing and other requirements; and (6) present information in a focused, concise way. The bulletin also discusses building public speaking skills, how presentations can be evaluated, and what some of the rewards are. (NKA)
