How to give a better presentation

When you get nervous, you try to cover your vital organs.

And that’s why, you will see a lot of speakers sometimes fold their hands, bring their hands in front of them, and that’s a sign of nervousness.

Great speakers keep their body open, so there is no barrier between you and [the audience]”, Dananjaya Hettiarachchi.

Those are a few words of wisdom from Dananjaya’s video which you can find here on YouTube.

Check it out for the rest of his insights.

Here are a few other tips we found…

Don’t open your presentation by announcing who you are, where you’re from, or any other info people can already get by reading your bio.

Instead, open with a shocking fact, like “There’s more people alive today who than have ever died.”

This is actually untrue so pick something else!

Practice in a mirror, and count your “ums”.

Repeat until they are gone.

Remove as much text as possible from your slides.

Here is some more advice from around the web and remember this applies to interviews too!
