  • The power of the creative pause...Slow down!
  • A pause is an underline...
  • Never say "I'm feeling nervous up here..."
  • Make sure there's a logical flow to what you say...
  • Make sure there's at least one takeaway!
  • Avoid re-teaching!
  • Quote accurately...Borrow credibility
  • Been congruent!
  • Be yourself, but more so...
  • Watch what you say...no swearing or sexual innuendo 
  • Don't copy someone else's style! Be yourself, only more so...
  • No word whiskers! They're annoying...
  • Instead, use the power of the pause...
  • Keep it fun for you and them!
  • Say no to presentation you don't want to do!
