Planning a Presentation Skills Book in PDF Format

There are three types of presentation that you as a manager will need to make as part of your normal responsibilities: to your team, to senior management, and to other groups. Presentations to your own team are usually low-key events that don't justify much preparation but which still need to be clear and concise. Presentations to senior management usually involve reporting progress or making recommendations. Presentations to other groups often justify significant preparation because you are usually aiming to change the audience's perceptions or behavior. 

Planning a Presentation

One of the most important management skills to develop is the ability to quickly plan and structure a presentation so that you can give a strong performance even when you have minimal time in which to prepare it.
