Making a 60 minute presentation takes a lot of preparation. People spend hours, if not days, working on that type of a presentation.
The thing people don’t realize is giving a 5 minute presentation is even more difficult. Determining what to include, what to exclude and how to summarize takes a great deal of thought, planning and understanding of the situation.
Unfortunately, too often people think they can spend a few minutes and be ready for that 5 minute presentation. They think a 5 minute presentation shouldn’t require much thought and preparation and sadly, it’s why most short presentations truly suck.
If you need to make a short presentation take the time to prepare properly. Otherwise your short presentation simply becomes a waste of everyone’s time.
Have a great day!
