  3. 3. WHATis far more important than how
  4. 4. Presentations are not about actingRather, they are about being authenticWhy most coaches work on body language?Because it’s difficult to work on contentBut content is far more importantWhen speaker is comfortable with the contentBody language just comes naturally

  10. 10. If I cannot fix it I will feature itBut I will not hide it, becauseThe audience will discover it sooner or laterThey’ll get upset and I’ll lose their trustAlso I need that problematic partTo make my story work (no problem — no story!)Strengths and weaknesses ARE the same thing
  11. 11. YO U ARE THEH E RO
  12. 12. In a presentation it’s ok to talk about yourselfA LOTNot because you’re awesome, but becauseBest talks come from experienceIt’s not about showing off or braggingIt’s about revealing yourselfBeing transparent and honest
  13. 13. My target audience is simply“humans”
  14. 14. “ Target audience” is an abstraction So talking to “target audience” is pointless Of course trying to please everyone Is equally pointless, but the trouble is With the word “please” Rather than “pleasing” we should create An emotional connection with other humans
  15. 15. TECHNOLOGYMATTERS
  16. 16. Speakers can accomplish a lot more by using:Slide-ware / Clicker / MicrophoneLots of people are scared of technologyBecause it feels like surrendering your controlTo something that never quite worksBut learning to handle those devicesMakes them work so much better
