Sanity's Blogtober TIP Parade: 10/21 ME? Speaking?

So, this post is for you moms who have done speaking engagements before.

I have.

I love them.

But I get real nervous.

And I am always looking for ways to "keep it fresh."

My tip for public speaking? Pretend you are talking to one of your best friends on the phone... under a spotlight... with 100 people staring at you ...and don't snort! Easy, right?

So, lay it on me! What are your PUBLIC SPEAKING tips?! If I get enough, I will post the video of the event here on my blog.

I think the number one thing that has helped me to remember that I know the topic well. After all, someone asked you to speak right? Own Your Expertise! Good Luck!

I memorize an outline. I know what I'm going to talk about and in what order, but I don't know exactly what words are going to come out of my mouth. I delivered a presentation 4 times on Sunday and every one was a little different.

I also like to group things in threes.

Have fun!
