Structure is one of the most important, yet often overlooked parts of a presentation narrative. It’s typically an afterthought. And also a point of contention among team members. One person might think point C should be at the beginning, while another might think it makes more sense to put that point at the end. But the core of many structure issues hinges on a lack of direction and purpose. This episode of the Presentation Scientists reveals 3 ways presenters can choose a destination for their message and chart a clear course to arrive there. Listen to find out more about the methods outlined below:

  1. The Rule of 3’s
  2. Transitions
  3. Cognitive Load Theory
