Abstract

How information is presented can have as much impact as the information itself. In order to ensure that you're getting your message across to the audience, you need to prepare your talk with as much care as you designed your research. This unit outlines information on how to prepare a great talk and deliver it for maximum effectiveness. © 2017 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
