Take it easy - Part 1

Fellow speaker,

Speech coach Jeremy Donovan suggests using these methods to relax and be more prepared before your speech:
  • If your speech is within easy traveling distance, travel to your speaking location before the date of your speech to get an idea of how long it takes to get there
  • Look at the setup of the room to become familiar with any room challenges
  • Test the technology and bring a backup method of presenting in case the technology fails (e.g., if doing a slide presentation, print out your slides and bring them so in case the computer doesn't work, you can give key slides to the audience)
