    • most ineffective presentations could have been prevented if the presenter had just asked two important questions before he began to prepare: (1) What’s my point? And (2) why does it matter?
    • Most presenters focus only on the what (information, data, more information…more data just in case) and then spend some time on the how (often resulting in the creation of typical bulletpoint driven ppt slides), but almost no time is spent really thinking about the Why
    • The Why is were we should start almost all projects, including presentations
