Presentation Lessons from the Olympics

The London 2012 Olympics has just ended on August 12. What lessons have we gotten from it as presenters? Here are a few you may be able to resonate with:

Lesson 1: Great presentations are the result of relentless practice.

When you practice, you should also not repeat the same mistakes before. Practice to be better.

Lesson 2) Great presentations require unshakeable self belief

With enough amount of self-confidence, you can do anything, including presenting in front of a thousand people even if you’re the introvert type.

Lesson 3) Managing your “nerves” is a critical success factor

Find that inner calm within you and harness that nervous energy. That’s what the Olympic champions did and so can you.
