Chapter 5 – Persuasive Presentations
How to Organize Your Presentation (refer to page 59-65)
1. Proposition to Proof. State proposition at the beginning, lets your listeners know what you
want from them. Prove your proposition with 3-5 points of evidence & an emotional appear.
Review the evidence. Works well with favourable audiences, possible with uninformed,
apathetic, favourable mixed groups, but not good for hostile & hostile-mix audiences.
2. Problem to S olution. State the problem then present a solution from your point of view. Make
sure problem is explained clearly. 3-5 points & suppor ting material, review & memorable
closing. Same audience as proposition.
3. Reflective. Start with a problem then prove that it exists, then establish the criteria to evaluate
and select a solution. Risk is that audience might be unsure what you are advocating. Make sure
to eliminate other points of view as viable. Excellent for analytical people, hostile & hostile-
mixed groups . Overkill for favourable, uninformed & apathetic audiences.
4. Motivated Sequence. Used most in sales, leads your audience to a call to action. Create a
need in the audience or makes it aware of a need, then supply the means to satisfy that need,
make solution appealing.
