Forget your nerves and just give the presentation!
As Loyalist College and Loyalist PR gears up for our Community Workshops it is amazing to see the nervousness and among people when you say you are going to give a presentation. As I have heard many times, some people fear presentations more than death. Seriously.
Since I barely have Shame, I do not really get how people get so nervous about presentations. If you give a great one, people will love you. If you give a bad one, people will be bored. So you bore a bunch of people and then keep living your life. At least that is how I think anyways.
One thing that helps is practice. I remember being taught to practice early on in September, and I thought “how does that really help?” but it really does work. I find that practice helps you remember and memorize the presentation. If your nerves start to creep up, you at least have the practices to fall back on.
Getting nervous about presenting is all about over-thinking what is going to happen. It is okay to be nervous. But get used to them and deliver the best presentation you can.
