Abstract

When you're called upon to give a presentation about your nonprofit, remember the KISS rule (Keep It Simple, Stupid!). Don't overwhelm your audience with too much information. Remember, they'll only remember a small portion of what you say anyway.In drafting your speech outline, select two or three main messages and then build your talk around them. Reinforce and reiterate these key points to make sure these are what your audience will remember.Limiting your words may be difficult. After all, you may feel so enthusiastic about your cause that you want to go on and on about it. Instead, channel that enthusiasm into sharing key points with an energy and spirit that your audience won't soon forget.
