You’ll want to share the details of your survey, sure, but you will also need to explain the key outcomes. Explain the survey using a slide like this. That may look like explaining the challenge that prompted the survey or the challenges you faced when constructing the survey. Either way, you’ll want to provide background information for your audience on both the survey and the situation that prompted it. You’ll want to list the top 3-5 objectives so your audience understands the reason why the survey was necessary. It’s also a good idea to describe the solution you’re proposing and what the outcomes could be.
