· Starting off with a question
· Introducing yourself and your teammates
· Revealing why the audience should care
· Summarizing what you will be talking about
In addition, I also learned that you should try to end the presentation, just like we do with memos, with some sort of action request from the audience. An example of an action request being feedback so that it can be applied to future reports. I also learned that it is better to not have any cue cards with you when presenting, or at least minimal usage of them if they are needed. By doing that, it shows that you came prepared and know your material, and it also gives you a professional look.
