The moment has come: you enter the stage. Then there are a few things you can pay attention to.


Stay close to yourself

To come across as authentic and credible, you have to stay close to yourself. Don’t pretend to be better or different than who you are. The audience stings right through that.

When you stay close to yourself, you feel secure, and that is the best starting point for every performance you do. That’s easy to say, but how do you do that, come across as authentic and stay close to yourself? Remember that, just like learning to drive a car well, you need to gain experience before you have mastered the presentation.



Seize every opportunity to speak in front of a group. You will see that over time you will discover more and more what suits you best.
