When a businessperson makes a presentation she really needs to be prepared. Every detail must be just right and the text of her discussion must be carefully rehearsed as if she was preparing to sing the lead in a production of "La Traviata." These days, a presentation is most often prepared using a computer software program like Powerpoint. It's now considered perhaps a bit quaint to present a series of pre-printed posters on a presentation easel, but it's a better idea than you might think; it is unusual and memorable.

If you are going to go the old fashioned route, however, you need to be extra careful. You will need to spend a great deal of time making sure all your posters have been printed attractively and are extremely easy to read as you build your case. You will have to be careful to keep your presentation dramatic and engaging through your verbal skills and the correct body language. It is even important to make sure your presentation easel is appropriate. A cheap piece of unfinished wood might be fine for a sign that says, "Please use the back door," but a presentation easel for a proper business "dog and pony show" must be the best of breed.

Easels are available in all kinds of shapes and sizes, from small tabletop models to larger deluxe types that you might imagine holding a classic work of art like Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" or Van Gogh's "Starry Night." They are also available in a wide range of prices. The important thing is that you get one that helps you make your point. How awful it would be to do all the work of preparing a big talk with an outstanding visual presentation, only to have it ruined by the wrong presentation easel.
