Owning your presentation: Own the moment and take your time

by Jim Mosley

What kills a good presentation almost as much as a lack of preparation? Letting the adrenaline get the best of you.

Your first few sentences set the tone for a speech or presentation – don’t let that nervous energy force you into speaking too quickly.

Do more than just exude confidence – claim this moment as yours. Approach the mic (or the head of the table) at your own pace. Pause to inhale. Take command of the room by taking your time. It is always better to pause until you are cool and calm than to let the adrenaline do the talking.
