Put your best foot forward every time! One of the reasons that many people fear taking the
podium is because they are afraid of being the focal point of everyone’s attention and they don’t
want to make a fool of themselves. There are several things you can do to “fool-proof” your
speaking event so that you present well every single time!
1. Take the time to prepare well for your presentation. Preparation enhances your
confidence and it’s also an opportunity to refine any weak areas in your presentation.
2. Begin and end your presentation on time. Arriving late to your presentation is simply
unprofessional; not to mention that it won’t win you any points with your crowd. Also speaking
over time shows your audience that you don’t value their time.
