Course Overview

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.
