  • 6. 3 Your breath is your pathway to a great delivery. practice a slow and deep breath, focusing your attention on both the inhalation and exhalation.
  • 7. 4 Before crafting your next presentation, reflect deeply on the impact you want to leave on your audience, then frame everything around that.
