- If you were selected to make a presentation based on your knowledge of the subject, use this to your advantage. Keep your mind focused and don’t worry about what the audience thinks. You are the expert here, so show them your passion.
- Organize your presentation like a story so it makes sense. This will help with memorizing it, too.
