5 Useful Preparation Tips Before Presenting

preparation-fashion-show-28880544Every presentation opportunity is an important one so make sure that you prepare well. Here are 5 things that you can do to make sure that you are able to give your best every single time:

Step 1)  Know your stuff… no really. When you know your stuff, you own your presentation and your audience knows it. It’s also true otherwise.

Step 2)  Never rush the set-up. Doing so will just leave you frazzled and more anxious and this will show on your presentation.

Step 3)  Get comfortable in the setting. If this was a play, it would be the final costume rehearsal. Go through your speech in the actual space or room that you will be using when you do your presentation.

Step 4)  Take a walk. Half an hour before your presentation, go for a walk. This will reduce your anxiety and the oxygen will do your brain some good.

Step 5)  Get relational. Talk to some of your audience before the presentation starts. Seeing that you are relaxed and comfortable around them will increase your credibility in the eyes of your audience.
