My colleague @wilsonsherriff and I have a regular conversation about how when a presentation really matters, no matter how skilled or experience you are, you want to run away or hide under the bed.

 

In fact, its often a bad sign if the presentation matters and you are not nervous. So its good to review tips to help you come across as confident even when you want to run for the hills.

Preview of some of those tips:

  • 7P's = Proper Preparation & Practice Prevents Piss Poor Performance. (some call it 6 without the ... you know which)
  • Know Your Venue
  • Visualize Success
  • Know Your Audience 
  • Claim the three “audience truths.” One: They believe you’re the expert, so don’t tell them otherwise. Two: They want you to succeed, so they’re on your side. Three: They won’t know when you make a mistake, so don’t announce it
  • Realize you don’t look as nervous as you feel
  • Memorize your opening
  • Get psyched up before you go "on" - See Amy Cuddy  http://on.ted.com/Cuddy

This excellent article, suggests that you can prepare to deliver a memorable presentation, and it outlines six steps to take to achieve this result.
