A good presentation is unique to the audience and circumstances under which it is given. Since 1996, I've been fortunate to present presentations like the ones below to a wide variety of audiences, including public safety. I can honestly say that even after 20 years, I still learn as much from the audience as I impart to them.
When I deliver a presentation, I hope that I am sparking each person's curiosity and inspiring them to act in some way that benefits their own lives, and the lives around them.
The key to a good presentation is understanding that when you provide good information that benefits the audience, it doesn't matter what kind of barriers exist. They can be overcome.
