I Want to be a Better Presenter, <br>But I Doubt If . . .

I doubt if you’ll read all of these doubts – especially the last one!

I doubt if I’ll ever get any better at presenting.

I doubt if they’ll be interested in anything I have to say.

I doubt if practicing would make a difference.

I doubt if reading books and blogs on public speaking would help me improve my presentations.

I doubt if video taping my presentation would help me improve my delivery.

I doubt if having a digital recorder to capture ideas is worth the investment.

I doubt if joining Toastmasters is a good idea.

I doubt if asking people for feedback would help me.

I doubt if delivery really trumps content.

I doubt if non-verbal communication trumps verbal communication.

I doubt if using pauses in a presentation can have an effect.

I doubt if a smile really is universal.

I doubt if a strong opening and strong closing are really necessary.

I doubt if repetition really reinforces a message.

I doubt if using props would help the audience GET IT.

I doubt if the body language and facial expressions of the audience really give me feedback.

I doubt if my body language matters in my presentation.

I doubt if Q&A should be before the conclusion of my talk.

I doubt if I should redo those slides.

I doubt if using industry buzz words and acronyms really hurts my presentation.

I doubt if I should be supplying the text and use images rather than bullet points in my slides.

I doubt if high quality images are better than cheap clip art.

I doubt if ‘blanking’ the screen really takes the focus off the screen and onto me.

I doubt if refreshing my speech would make it better.

I doubt if writing my own introduction is better than just handing my bio to the emcee.

I doubt if arriving early to met and greet people as they arrive would ease my fear of public speaking.

I doubt if mind mapping is a tool I could use to develop, practice and deliver a speech.

I doubt if speaking really gives me credibility and would help my career.

I doubt if I really need to study all the elements of verbal and non-verbal communication.

I doubt if blogging regularly would help my speaking.

Finally, I doubt if you have any doubts.  Do you? If so, please comment.
