You can’t always count on
technology. Nothing can throw confidence and preparation out the window like a presentation malfunction. Arrive early to the venue and test your presentation before you present.
If you’re scheduled to speak
for 45 minutes, time yourself to finish five minutes early for Q & A’s. You can recover from a tangent if necessary. Get a feel for how long you want to spend talking about each concept before you start to present.
The unavoidable fear that something
will go wrong, and a lot of times, it does. An audience member cans ask you a question you’re unable to answer, or you could get negative reactions from the entire audience. Have a recovery plan for failed jokes, tough questions, glitches in technology and any other curve balls.
