Golden Top Tip
When you’re preparing for a speech, meeting or #presentation

If you start by assembling your evidence before identifying your key points, you risk ending up with a flow that’s either too complicated or too distanced from what your audience really cares about.

If instead you start by assessing what you want to achieve with your audience and only THEN craft your Key Points before FINALLY assembling relevant evidence…

You’ll be much more impactful.
