Part Ten: Your Tenth Strategy on How to Give a Presentation

“How to give a presentation” Tip 10: Your Call to Action

Blog Tip #9 shares how to start your conclusion at your meeting/presentation/conversation. Your next piece of your conclusion is to have a Call to Action.

Your Call to Action asks your listener(s) to do, feel, or think something differently as a result of having met with you.

It’s vital!

It’s the culmination of why you’ve just spent your valuable time and THEIR valuable time having your meeting/speech/pitch. Without this call for action – you and your listener(s) won’t be on the same page as to what’s going to happen next.

Examples:

I want you to rethink the zoning for this development.

I ask you to invest in this technology.

We challenge you to change your idea on this merger.

In fact, even though this is Part Ten of this series and your Call for Action comes at the conclusion, think about your call for action as you design your entire message. Know what you want and you know what to say all along.

A so-so presentation can be saved by a great conclusion.

Stay tuned to additional blogs in this series on how to give a presentation and what to do next.
