Hi Chris,

That's a great point about researching the event and room set up. Doing that up front in the planning stage can really save time and misunderstandings later on!

Thanks for stopping by!

I like your system and the order of the steps. (And I absolutely agree with putting off designing your slides, or other visual aids, to the last, even though most people seem to start there.)

As part of Step I, audience needs analysis, I include research into the event itself. Where's it being held? How is the room set up? What time is my speech? All those sorts of questions.

Before I started asking all those questions, I often found myself dealing with situations that undermined my best efforts.
