Positive Approaches to Presentations and Public Speaking:

  • ‘knowing your stuff’: having confidence in what you are saying

  • practicing and ‘doing’: it really does seem to become easier and less stressful with practice

  • recognising that it takes time to get better at presentations

  • go ‘into role’ - seeing it as acting on a stage

  • making one-to-one contact with the audience, perhaps through eye contact or through naming members of the audience when using examples

  • focusing on emotional engagement with the audience

  • writing down what you want to say - even if you only have it as a backup

  • visualisation before the event

  • speaking clearly and more slowly than feels natural.
