We’re excited that it’s already episode fifteen of The Presentation Boss Podcast! All presentations need a structure. Simply standing and talking will rarely achieve much comprehension or communication at all. Preparation is always needed. And that preparation in part should be dedicated to the order and framework in which your words, thoughts and content will flow.
