P4: It's All in the Presentation

Tutor was Bev Walshe.

Retrospective:
I now know more about giving presentations – while the vast majority of this was learned /in the workshop/, I can at least say I’ve learnt to look out for things to use.

I am still not calm most of the time – the only way I deal with it for now is taking a brief pause, and when that fails to calm my racing heart I get more nervous – OH NO WHY ISN’T IT WORKING – so for now my strategy is to try to avoid it in the first place, or just ignore it.

I haven’t had a chance (or haven’t taken a chance) to present to a large group of people – my favourite, as is, is one or two people asking questions as we go along – this enables me to keep up the interaction and remain fairly casual.

    Hello Christopher,
    I think the comments I made on your last blog are applicable to this one –
    you are energetic and warm in your deliver – essential to a successful presentation
    a lot of people yearn to develop their own ‘style’ in presenting – you have one quite naturally so don’t try and squash it
    breathe and breathe and breath again if your racing heart is a menace – if it is displaced energy use it

    It’s been a pleasure reading your blogs
    best wishes for the future
    Bev
    i’d stil liek to knwo who Nick is though!
