Devoting time to preparing a presentation is worth it. Here are four reasons:

1. The audience’s time

Balance the time that you will spend planning the presentation against the time of the people in your audience. Say you’re presenting to 10 people for 40 minutes. That’s 400 minutes of people’s time – 6.6 hours. Isn’t it worth spending a few hours to ensure that 6.6. hours of people’s time is not going to be wasted?

2. The impact you can make

So devoting time to preparing your presentation is worthwhile. But, it’s also possible to waste time when you’re preparing a presentation by planning in inefficient ways. In my next post, I’ll give you my seven time-saving tips.
