Smart Company’s Eve Ash walks us through the common mistakes we tend to make when giving presentations. Check out my key takeaways below.
- The usual problems that speakers find themselves making when giving a presentation is that they can’t control their anxiety, they don’t connect with their audience, it’s one-way, and it’s boring
- To avoid these, start out by setting yourself a more positive mindset, and research who you’ll be talking—so you can make it relevant for them
- Allow for questions to open up a two-way street; stay in control but keep them engaged with you in conversation
