Delivering Technical Briefings
A technical briefing is a speech that conveys technical information to a specific audience, usually in a workplace.
Technical briefings should be presented in a way that allows an audience to understand and apply critical information. Technical briefings can range from an engineer briefing a group of managers on a current project, to a retail supervisor explaining a new company policy to the store employees. Follow the steps below to ensure your technical briefings are as effective as they can be:
- Know your audience. Avoid using too much industry jargon or material that is too technical for your colleagues to easily understand.
- State the purpose of the technical briefing in one or two sentences and use this summary as the focal point for the entire presentation.
- Arrange the material into an outline containing an introduction, main points and a conclusion.
- Summarize the main points of the technical briefing during the conclusion.
