presentation part uno

The first part of my marketing presentation was this morning. It went fairly well. I am usually a nervous wreck before any public speaking engagement. But this morning I was too tired to be nervous. We were at the library until 1am. So, I only got about 2 hours of sleep. The prof said he really like what we are doing so far. Friday is our big finale!!

Any public speaking horror stories to share??


  1. I don't enjoy public speaking, but I don't hate it either - no horor stories on my part. But when I was in high school, my best friend was absolutely TERRIFIED to do public speaking, but we had to give 3 minute speeches in English class. She got up to do hers and started crying. The teacher wouldn't let her sit back down - instead, she bribed her with Werthers candy. For evey paragraph of her speech that she got through (she just read the whole thing!) she got a candy.

  2. Dude, I was the worst at it. I would totally shake in front of the class! I bet you did much better than I ever did.

  3. I get SOOO nervous every time!Little trick, pick out three people to make eye contact with ahead of time. It will let you mentally know where to look but look like to everyone else you're looking around the room! :)
