A series of articles and videos to help you improve your presentation skills and oral communication
By asking yourself just two simple questions, you can make your presentation preparation easier, keep your audience engaged and prevent yourself from digressing whilst you’re speaking.
The question and answer section can cause a lot of anxiety for you, the presenter. You’ve been in control of your presentation content, but you can’t control the questions that your audience ask you.
