From Seeds of SUCCESS eZINE, Guest Author
You may have heard that more people fear public speaking than death. Fear not; follow these surefire tips and you’ll be remembered as a stunning orator long after the mic is turned off.
2. Don’t get bogged down by thousands of facts. Focus on the essence of your message and present supporting data in a clear, relevant manner.
3. Never wing it. But don’t overplan either. Know your message by heart and bring note cards to mentally guide you in a coherent way.
4. Don’t focus on the whole audience; focus on individual audience members. In a room of 300, there’s no way to connect with everyone. Key into a few people and present to them. You’ll feel more at ease and your delivery will be more conversational.
