1. AT THE BEGINNING THERE IS THE ANALYSIS
This first step is really essential for the later presentation success. In the analysis, you first determine the topic of your presentation and narrow it down precisely. After that, you will be clear about the presentation goals and clarify which framework parameters are given. The most important thing, however, is the targeted determination of the target group.

Always remember, knowledge of the target audience ideally flows into the content, design, as well as the appearance and presentation framework. Once you have that aligned, you can target your audience.

In concrete terms, this means that you define or develop colors, shapes and layout. Always keep in mind that different target groups have different tastes and preferences. So don’t let your own tastes guide you too much.
For a professional presentation, it is also always essential to think about the framework that surrounds the presentation. So also think about the lecture room, screen and lighting atmosphere.

Because all of this also has a significant influence on the success of the presentation.
