Always Repeat Yourself

Your audience probably hears about half of what you say… and then they filter that through their own perspectives. So create a structure that allows you to repeat and reinforce key points. First explain a point, hen give examples of how that point can be applied, and at the end provide audience action steps they can take based on that point.
Since no one can remember everything you say, what you repeat has a much greater chance of being remembered – and being acted upon. So repeat away!
