The 5 Ps of Presentation

In order to improve the value of a presentation one must construct an excellent story (p1), design appropriate and supportive media (p2) but ultimately all of this will come to naught if you fail to deliver it (p3). For many, this presents a significant problem but this too can be overcome with prior consideration and following a series of simple steps.

Patches O’Houlihan, an infamous Dodgeball coach claimed that there are 5 Ds of Dodgeball: “Dodge, dive duck, dip and Dodge.” There are 5 Ps of presentation:

  1. practise
  2. preparation
  3. presence
  4. perform
  5. practice

Attention to each of these will bring about dramatic improvement in delivery of your presentation (p3) and thus in the overall value of your presentation (p3).
