      • Know the room- become familiar with the place of presentation
      • Know the audience- greet or chat with the audience before hand. It’s easier to speak to friends than to strangers
      • Know your material-increased nervousness is due to un-preparedness
    • 21. Control the “Butterflies”
      • Relaxation- relax entire body by stretching and breathing so as to ease the tension
      • Visualize giving your speech-Visualize yourself giving your speech from start to finish. By visualizing yourself successful, you will be successful
    • 22. Control the “Butterflies”
      • People want you to succeed-the audience is there to see you succeed not to fail
      • Don’t apologize-by mentioning your nervousness or apologizing, you’ll only be calling the audience’s attention to mistakes
    • 23. Control the “Butterflies”
      • Concentrate on your message-not the medium. Focus on the message you are trying to convey and not on your anxieties
      • Turn nervousness into positive energy-nervousness increases adrenaline, transform it into vitality and enthusiasm
    • 24. Control the “Butterflies”
      • Gain experience-experience builds confidence, which is key to effective public speaking
