In the business world, presentations are regularly conducted for the purpose of persuasion, explanation, instruction or briefing. Whether it is a project meeting, a sales meeting, a frequent departmental meeting or a board meeting, the purpose of presentation is the same.

In doing presentations, the most important thing is not what you want to say, but what you want to accomplish. By using this approach as the foundation, presentations can be designed better in order to get the most desirable results from any group that the presentation is addressed to; be it the top management, colleagues, suppliers, customers or the public. In the business world, results are what matters.
