LESSON NOTES
Your audience doesn’t have time for a recap of everything you did. They want the good stuff. And they want it Now! So: BLUF – Bottom Line Up Front
Start with your key message or your Central Idea.

The Body of Your Presentation
Once you have stated your Central Idea, you will build on it by answering the question your audience has in mind. This is likely to be either:
1. Why?
Justify your Big Idea
2. How?
What are the steps to do what you suggest?

End your presentation
An effective ending has two parts:
1. Summarize the Central Idea
2. Make a Call to Action

RECOMMENDED EXERCISE
Next time you need to build a presentation, craft it with a compelling structure:
1. A Central Idea (2 MC CPD Points)
2. Clear questions to answer (2 MC CPD Points)
3. Three-part answers to your questions (2 MC CPD Points)
4. A two-part end with a summary and a call to action (2 MC CPD Points)
