Public Speaking Takes More Than You Think

by Gilda Bonanno LLC http://www.gildabonanno.com/

Public speaking is a skill that can be improved with practice over time... and sometimes, it takes more than you think:

1. Speak louder than you think you need to

2. Speak slower than you think you have to

3. Edit your content more than you think is required

4. Organize your material more clearly than you think you should

5. Use more relevant, engaging stories than you think you need to

6. Make the font on your slides larger than you think is necessary

7. Practice more than you think is needed

8. Spend more time preparing than you think you have to

9. Be more confident than you think you are

10. Present better than you think you are capable of

Great suggestions Gilda, especially editing down to fewer points.

TJ,
Thanks for your comment. Editing can be one of the most difficult parts of preparing to give a presentation, but one of the most important!
