stuttering and not saying the right words
Having to be funny - I'm not very funny
Everybody staring into my soul
Everyone is looking @ME
stuttering or failure
getting tongue tied
Everyone looking at me.
forgetting my message or stumbling
concern I will lose focus
Forget what to say.
rambling, saying too much, saying something that appears stupid
Losing my focus and train of thought
food in my teeth
*stumbling on my words
Tripping and falling, I am clumsy
When people are just looking but not giving no head nods or feedback. Appears that they are not paying attention to you
losing my train of thought
losing train of thought

Clear and direct information
Is this being recorded?

Energy is contagious!
start at the end
be yourself (to a point)
Focus on the audience! Keep them in mind with everything I plan when speaking.
practice, practice and practice some more!
To be the audience
Fake it to you make it
Everyone has fear - plan to account for it and not let it win.
I like the focus more on what the audience needs and less on my own nerves
Keep your audience in mind all the time.
hype yourself with your Theme song to get ready for your presentation
Preparation is key
The importance in preparation and practice!
Practice your script
make a motivational/boss playlist and planning the goal/experience of the talk. Make it about them and not myself!
people want me to succeed in my presentation
Get your Theme Song
Your audience is the main focus; pratice
To start at the end, don't wing it, be prepared
Even the big names can flop...and people feel dissapointed
Know your audience so you can prepare and practice
What is your go to opening? Always a story?
How have you handled an audience heckler and redirect?
any points on a technical presentation vs a more motivational presentation?
Thank you. I see your point there.
Do you have tips for how to get back on track if you get rattled halfway through your talk?
How can you read your audience?
how do you stay excited and inspired by a topic that you talk about frequently? Sometimes it can feel robotic if you talk about it often.
Any thoughts about PowerPoint versus Prezi?
What type of feedback (besides live audience interaction) has been most helpful to you as you've grown as a speaker?
If you have any other questions, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get them to David!
