Public speaking, just as many other skills, can’t be mastered without practicing and knowing your mistakes. It is a first step toward improvement. Here are some of the most commonly seen errors along with advice on how to avoid them.

Mistake #1: Reading from a script

Not only does reading your presentation word for word significantly undermine your credibility, as people can’t be that sure that you know what you are talking about, but it is also very boring. Having your key notes beside the PowerPoint presentation is a good reminder that won’t stand in the way of your spontaneity.

Mistake #2: Talking too fast

You are anxious and you want it to be done as soon as possible so you speed up your speech. Talking too fast reveals your lack of confidence, undermines your credibility and makes it difficult for the audience to follow your presentation.

Excerpt from Kathy's blog post:


What is important when you present is the experience your audience has. When you design for a user experience, you quit focusing on your skills and start focusing on their skills.


Start asking yourself: 


  • What experience can you help them have?
  • Can you give them a more powerful perspective?
  • Can you give them a new idea with immediate implementation steps they can't wait to work on?
  • Can you give them a clear way to finally explain something to others that they've been feeling but could not articulate?
  • Can you give them a new tip or trick that hassuch a high-payoff it feels like a superpower?
  • Can you give them knowledge and insight into a tough topic, so they can have more interesting, high-resolution conversations in the hallway?
