  1. Monitor your presentation skills constantly.  Tape your presentations, get honest feedback from friends and reflect on your own work.  Work at ongoing improvement.

  3. Use it or lose it!  Speak at every opportunity that presents.
  4. Don’t forget your enthusiasm, but make it honest, not fake.  Make a point of taking up opportunities that interest you and your enthusiasm will flow naturally.
  5. Dress appropriately for the occasion.  Look successful and confident.
  6. Ensure you are aware of new technology and how to use it.
  7. Attend and listen to other speakers on occasion.  Learn from them and get ideas for your own presentations.  Note good ideas and effective presentation measures.
  8. Always keep the needs of the audience in mind.  Are they bored?  Restless?  Hungry?  Is it time for a break?
  9. Enjoy yourself!  It’s your show and your audience needs to know you are enjoying it.
