Writing out a script is an important part of your presentation preparation. You need to focus on the words you’ll use to communicate your messages. However, I’m not recommending that you read from this script unless your presentation topic is particularly sensitive.
One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they forget about rehearsing their presentation. Rehearsing your presentation out loud a minimum of 3 times will give you confidence and ensure you achieve a logical flow between your points.
Effective rehearsal and knowing that you have spent time really ‘feeling’ your presentation will do wonders for your self-confidence which feeds in directly to you giving a good performance.
