What is the difference between a persuasive, explanatory, or instructional presentation, an oral report, and a decision briefing?  
These are all different types of presentations. A persuasive presentation is one where the speaker tries to influence the audience perhaps to get them excited about a new concept or product – such as used by salesmen trying to promote his/her merchandise. Explanatory presentations are used to provide information, perhaps an overview of a new program being initiated in the organization. An instructional presentation is one used to teach the audience how to do or use something and may involve audience participation. Oral reports are similar to explanatory presentations, but tend to be used to present information more familiar material such as an update on a task or problem area. A decision briefing is generally used to present pros and cons about various recommendations to a problem for the benefit of a decision maker. More about presentation types, how and when to use them can be found in the references provided.
