Organize ideas logically — A well-organized presentation can be absorbed with minimal mental strain. Master metaphors — Metaphors enhance the understandability of the message in a way that direct language often can not. Tell a story — Everyone loves a story.
Points wrapped up in a story are more memorable, too! Start strong and close stronger — The body of your presentation should be strong too, but your audience will remember your first and last words if, indeed, they remember anything at all.
Incorporate humour — Knowing when to use humour is essential. So is developing the comedic timing to deliver it with greatest effect. Vary vocal pace, tone, and volume — A monotone voice is like fingernails on the chalkboard.

Craft an introduction — Set the context and make sure the audience is ready to go, whether the introduction is for you or for someone else. Exhibit confidence and poise — These qualities are sometimes difficult for a speaker to attain, but easy for an audience to sense. Handle unexpected issues smoothly — Maybe the lights will go out.Examples of Materials That Can Be Adapted For Therapy a collection of resources by Judith Maginnis Kuster.
