Okay, so I have a few presentations coming up at university. I'm absolutely **** at presentation, when I say im ****, I mean i'm actually ****. Thinking of dropping a few shots before to help loosen me up, anyone done this before?
Don't drink or take anything for your presentations.
It is perfectly natural to be terrified of presenting!
The way to combat those nerves is to throw yourself into it and not worry about what anyone thinks. In fact, most people are very kind about nervous presenters.
You can start your presentation off with "Sorry, I am a nervous presenter but I will do my best so bear with me..."
Afterwards, you will feel amazing for trying.
I used to be very nervous about presenting to the point I sweated and could barely speak. It was only at work I combated this head on and made myself practice.
The only way to get better is to dive in and throw yourself at it. It will be scary and nervewracking, but the more you do it, the easier it gets
What is your presentation preparation routine? Do you present it in your room first as a practice? Do you ever present to a friend for their feedback?
And that's a promise.
