“With confidence, you have won even before you have started.”
~ Marcus Garvey
Your listeners want you to succeed! Few things are more painful than watching a presenter in trouble. If you feel awkward or ill at ease, your audience will, too. If you keep a bold face and forge ahead, they’ll follow along.
When you step up to speak remember, you’re talking to a room full of your biggest fans, so be sure to project a confidence that lets your audience know you have everything “under control.”
