Three Mistakes to Avoid!

Updated: Feb 15

Fred Miller, NO SWEAT Public Speaking.

Here Are Three Mistakes to Avoid!

Number One:

  1. Don’t let the emcee, or anyone else write your introduction.

  2. They’re probably going to grab your bio off the internet and that has nothing to do with your presentation.

  3. You write the introduction.

Number Two:

  1. When you take questions, do not take them after your presentation.

  2. Your Closing is your Closing.

  3. Take the questions before that because the Law of Primacy and Recency says the audience will remember the first and last things you say and do.

  4. That’s why I want a strong opening and a stronger closing.

  5. The last thing you  say and do as a speaker is the first thing they remember.

Number Three:

  1. Don’t think you can wing it.

  2. Practice – Practice – Practice

  3. The rule of thumb for Ted Talk speakers is one hour of preparation for every minute of presentation.

Avoid Those Three Mistakes and I guarantee your next presentation will be absolutely positively – NO SWEAT!


Pausing is a key component of presenting.
