Dale Carnegie: Successful Presentation

“If your own mind is muddled, much more will the minds of your hearers be confused.”
- Dale Carnegie

The effective speaker should have a clearly organized and purposeful presentation. Here is the basic structure of a successful presentation:
  • Opening - Favorably attract immediate interest from the audience
  • Message - Clearly state your message or theme
  • Evidence - Establish credibility and inspire respect and confidence by using convincing evidence
  • Closing - Leave the audience with a favorable, memorable impression
