Little Things

Little things can irritate, especially when they are repetitive.  Along with ‘Do not let the audience get ahead’, ‘little things irritate’ should be the second golden rule of presentations.  Little fonts that are too small to read irritate.  Little repetitive movements backwards and forwards irritate, little repetitive hand gestures irritate, adding ‘alright?’ or ‘you know’ at the end of every sentence irritates.  Watch out for these little things, as you probably do not even realise that you are doing them.  Making a video recording of your presentation while you are practising can be a very good way to see and recognise these sub-conscious mistakes.
