Nervous about making speeches? Listen to Matt Abrahams


Matt  Abrahams breaks it down. Keeping a speach doesn’t have to be a “near-death” experience. Listen, learn and enjoy . See below some points that I took out from his talk.

  • Control the anxiety, it’s ok to be nervous
  • Use inclusive language. You are not presenting, you are in a conversation.
  • Be present: walk around the building before, or sing a song. Get present and ready
  • Dare to be dull
  • Challenging question -> Listen – it’s an opportunity (yes, and…) – acknowledge  the  emotion
