RATHER DIE THAN GIVE A SPEECH
The Book of Lists
says that public speaking is the number one fear of people. Even above
snakes, heights, flying and yes, even dying. Do you ever have to address
a group and find that you are in a cold sweat and that a whole flock of
butterflies has somehow gotten in your stomach? You are
not alone. Even if you are not doing public presentation, we are all called
upon to speak to employees, peers, neighborhood meetings, service clubs
and more. In this program, Jim stresses the importance of preparation
for a presentation. This includes audience analysis, understanding the
physical facilities and equipment involved and the format of a good presentation.
Jim also gives tips on how to relax before the presentation and get those
butterflies at least flying in formation. He also talks about the Do’s
and Don’ts while on the platform such as gestures and voice, gives
tips on the use of AV equipment and helps you learn how to answer questions.
