Overcoming Presentation Anxiety
If you’re not naturally eloquent, presentations can be nerve-racking. Here are some tips that can help you get through it without too much anxiety.
- Practice makes perfect. Don’t skip this step. Rehearse your presentation many times and in different positions – sitting, standing, etc. The more you mix things up, the more comfortable you’ll be no matter what you’re faced with when you get to your meeting. Another thing that can be helpful is recording yourself while giving the presentation. Play it back to find out where you need more practice.
- Arrive early. Allow yourself plenty of time to get settled into your presentation area before you have to talk. Spend some time in the room. Practice with the microphone, if you plan to use one, and the lighting. Notice things that may distract you, such as people walking past the windows or noise on the road outside, and try your best to ignore them.
- Meet and greet. Chat with people before your presentation to make yourself seem approachable and likable. Ask questions and make note of the answers. They may give you the inspiration to weave into your presentation somewhere along the line.
- Stay calm. It’s easy to talk too fast when you get nervous. Try to stay calm. Smile often; it will make you seem enthusiastic and confident and relax you. Use pauses in your presentation and works in a story or two to help your talk feel more conversational. Wondering whether people are noticing your nervousness will only increase your anxiety. Don’t panic!
