Assumptions. What an interesting word!
How many of you have said to yourself or have at least once heard “I will not be a good presenter. That ain’t just me!”? Let me guess – a lot of you! And writing this (short) blog post, it hurts me. It hurts me that so many brilliant professionals just conclude that something, for some reason can “stop them” being great speakers/trainers/presenters.
The only thing I want to write is this – please, please, please, don’t think this way and let me tell you why. Yes, presenting and speaking in front of an audience is not an easy thing by any means. However, there are so many resources that you can learn from (even in my blog) and the only thing you have to do is trust those resources, arrange a speaking engagement and then apply them. Indeed, it will be a time consuming experience, but will you please trust me(and I believe the community will support me here) – it pays off. It just does, so go ahead and do it!
Thanks for hosting this one, Dev and I am sorry it’s that short. I just came back from a vacation and I should not even think of a computer at the moment, but I figured I just have to do it!
