Delivering your presentation

The price of public speaking!- Here’s 5 things that brilliant presenters have to sacrifice

Here’s a collection of thoughts on the pursuit of brilliance.  More of a ‘stake in the ground’ than a statement of fact, and I’d be delighted to get your views too.  Brilliant presenters have to sacrifice-

  1. The warm feeling that not caring about how you were received can give you- You’ve got to care to prepare and present well.
  2. The comfort of sitting on the fence- Have an opinion because it’s what you’re paid to have.
  3. Being right- If you have an opinion, people will disagree and you may find out you were wrong.
  4. Being universally loved- Not even Jesus….
  5. Safety from rejection- You will be rejected and there’ll be good & bad reasons for it. Learn to tell which are which and learn from every one.
