Question: Do You Give Or Make A Presentation?

In general, people MAKE a presentation or, slightly less often, GIVE a presentation.

Whilst some people will DO a presentation, the number is pretty small compared to the other two options.

Do you give a presentation?

I’ll assume you mean ‘presentation’ in the sense of giving a talk or lecture about something. If you say ‘I have to make a presentation’ it is about the creation/preparation of the material for the presentation. It means ‘deliver’, with the emphasis on the fact that you are presenting something to an audience.

What makes for a good presentation?

Good presentations are memorable. They contain graphics, images, and facts in such a way that they’re easy to remember. A week later, your audience can remember much of what you said. Great presentations are motivating.
