You the Speaker

January 5, 2010

Like it or not you are one of most important parts of the presentation, second only to the audience.

While some of the hints and tips in this blog have their origins in the theatre, one of the most important things when presenting is to be yourself.  Do not try putting on an act.  Do not pretend to be someone else.  Few people can do it well and those that do have glittering careers as film stars.

Even, if someone else wrote the presentation and provided a set of PowerPoint slides, you need to put the presentation in to your own words.

So be yourself, use your words, your actions, your thoughts, and speak from the heart.

Be proud that you have been invited to stand up and make a presentation to this audience.
