Practice. Practice. Practice. We’ve all heard that practice makes perfect, right? Well, the more you prepare for anything in life, the more comfortable you will feel – and the same goes for your next presentation. Public speaking can be a daunting task for some us, so here are a few tips to make your next presentation fly:
Write It Down
Yes, reading from a script or a piece of paper can make for a very poor presentation, but it’s still a good idea to have it with you. Not only will writing down your speech help you to memorize it, if you happen to lose your place or dry up you can refer to it quickly to get you back on track.
Start Preparing Early
You should begin prepping as soon as you find out you have a presentation coming up. Don’t leave it until the last minute because you are bound to forget something. Give yourself a realistic amount of time to prepare, you’ll be glad you did.
Have projectors to set up? Screens to display? Speakers to test? Give yourself plenty of time to set up the room. It’s also a good idea to get familiar with the room and go over your slides as if there was an audience sitting in front of you.
