40 Fatal Public Speaking Mistakes from John Watkis

By Gilda Bonanno LLC

Check out this useful list of 40 Fatal Public Speaking mistakes, compiled by professional speechwriter John Watkis.  It includes my personal pet peeves:

23.) Go over the time you’ve been given to deliver your speech. This works well just before lunch.

40.) Don’t practice. I know this was #1, but it’s important enough to repeat again. Failing to prepare for your speech is the most fatal public speaking mistake you can make.
