What Is a Technical Demonstration?

The types of presentations discussed so far in this book have been designed primarily to present information, concepts, or facts. From time to time you will be faced with the challenge of presenting a technical demonstration, which is a method of presenting the steps to complete a hands-on task or procedure. For example, you have been asked to demonstrate a new portable exhaust-sampling system. This is not a presentation on the importance of exhaust-sampling or on the international environmental regulations and certification associated with meeting exhaust particulate standards. It is to be a technical demonstration of the steps involved in setting up the testing equipment, taking samples, recording the data, and disassembling the equipment. As you can see, this sort of presentation is different from providing only information about exhaust-sampling systems.
