According to Kirk (2019) – chapter 3, the essence of “Formulating Your Brief” is to “identify the context in which your work will be undertaken and then define its aims – this is the who, what, where, when and how.” It could be formal or informal as any project you think you must make it. This phase is where you create a vision for your work.

Why is it so important to formulate your brief for a data presentation? Discuss some ways (some methods, guidelines, strategies, etc.) you would use to formulate an effective brief. Remember, this discussion is about presentation – for example: you could talk about best practices for doing PowerPoint presentations (PPts) OR any other type of presentations. Also, cover: what are some advantages to your methods? What are some disadvantages? In what ways do the method, practices, etc. that you suggest, make for an effective brief? You will find some information for answering this Discussion question in Kirk (2019), however, you should research other sources as well.
