The presentation coincided nicely with Jean-luc Doumont’s lecture at
Princeton University on September 19
. Many people would rather face
death than speak in front of an audience, but Doumont (with his lively
Belgian accent) gave eye-opening insights, ideas, and methods on planning,
designing, creating slides, practicing delivery, and answering questions. He
also addressed facial and body expressions, vocal modulation, and stress
management techniques. His ultimate tip: "Look where you want to go –
think of success, not failure."
