Purpose and Method of a Presentation

The purpose of any PowerPoint presentation relates directly to why the presentation is being created in the first place. It should have an identifiable goal so the message stays clear to your target audience.

Before you begin, decide what information the audience should know at the end of your presentation or decide what the audience should be able to do at the end of your presentation.

Informative presentations are used when you are trying to get some information or knowledge across to your audience eg training and these presentations might have many, many points that you want your audience to remember.

Persuasive presentations are used when you are trying to get your audience to do something eg as a team, take some action so that we will win. This type of presentation is also known as a “call to action” presentation.
