Everyone experiences butterflies when doing presentations. The best way to get started, Peter Quarry suggests to Eve Ash, is introducing yourself, your expertise, before saying something unusual, such as a statistic, revelation, story or joke. Ask a question – this takes the pressure off the presenter. Learning to relax and enjoy the situation helps the audience relate more to what the presenter is saying.
Starting a presentation can be simple, says Peter Quarry. Offer your credentials. Do something unusual. Begin with a vision. Learn to relax.
