Planning and Preparing to Deliver the Message

When you are developing the message, keep in mind how you will deliver it and where you will deliver it. The delivery of a formal presentation differs from that of an informal presentation. Location also has an influence on delivery.

How and where you deliver your presentation may depend on your preference, or it may be set by the group to whom you are presenting. Knowing in advance how and where you will present is critical to ensuring that your message is understood and creates the right impetus for action.

Note 

Part II contains much more material on delivering the message to audiences. For information on delivering the message to an individual, see Chapter 10, "Leadership Communications Coaching."
