A great presentation is really a demonstration of authenticity, an understanding who it is we're presenting to and of getting out of our own way.
Many of us don't look forward to speaking publicly. But we're often called on to do so — formally, informally, to big groups or small ones — often aiming to get people on board to our point of view. And we all instinctively know a good public speaker when we see one; they make it look easy, and seem so natural doing it. But if we want to get better, where do we begin? Ultimately it's all about being ourselves, and consciously approaching any kind of presentation with a practical framework and in mind and a willingness to bend it.
What we'll cover:
• How to relax and be yourself in the limelight
