HOW TO START YOUR PRESENTATION

  • Walk up to the rostrum briskly (watching your steps) and place your script on it. Keep the Key Words’ Card in your shirt pocket.
  • Wait for the Audience to settle down before you start speaking.
  • Speak your first 3 sentence and then take a deep breath.
  • THREE THINGS WILL DEFINITELY HAPPEN!!

1.    FIRST THING – You will forget your script

2.    SECOND THING Your heart will start pounding

3.    THIRD THING You will panic.
