锘? Have you ever been really excited about going to a conference just to be unpleasantly surprised by the quality of the speakers?

There are some really high caliber speakers in the world, many of which charge thousands of dollars for a 1-hour keynote speech, but many of them still haven't mastered the very basics of public presentation.

Please, don't let yourself fall into these traps! But don't feel bad if you've done some of these things because even the pros slip sometimes!

1. You look awful

If I am wearing nicer clothes than you and I'm in the audience, you've got a problem. One of the very first lessons I learned about public speaking (when I was 12 years old) was that how you look matters more than what you say.

Yes Denver Broncos Hoodie , that's right. Disappointing, isn't it?

You can use all the flowery prose you like, but if you don't look well-groomed, professional and credible no one will care too much about what you have to say.

2. You forget you're wearing a clip mic

When you're wearing a clip mic, please don't look down at your shoes when you speak. You actually shouldn't be doing this anyway, but it's even more annoying when you're wearing a mic because you end up yelling Denver Broncos Jersey , spitting andor breathing heavily into it!

Also be careful that you don't hit the mic when you gesture. Finally, make sure that your jacket isn't rubbing up against it every time you move.

All of these extra noises are distractions to your audience.

3. You tell inappropriate jokes

It just amazes me in this day and age when political correctness is such a hot topic that so many people can still stand up in front of audiences and make inappropriate, sexist or just plain sexual comments to large groups of people.

Cut it out! It's not funny. It's just unprofessional.

4. Your examples don't fit the culture you're speaking to

I can't even count how many metaphors I've heard over the past few weeks referring to basketball and baseball or examples using basketball and baseball stars. If you're speaking in a country outside of the United States, use some examples that make sense to your audience. Here in Singapore you would get a lot farther talking about badminton, football (that's soccer) and cricket!

5. You think that yelling is the same as motivating

Really, it just hurts our ears. If you want to yell to make a point Jared Crick Broncos Jersey , please move your mic away from your mouth before you blow out the speakers.

6. You pace the stage

It gets very distracting watching a speaker endlessly walk back and forth across a stage. It almost makes me dizzy.

It also gives the impression that the speaker is nervous, can't stand still or is literally darting questions or issues.

Stand tall and proud (in one spot) and deliver a powerful message. Use movement when changing topics to signal a new train of thought.

7. You stand behind the lectern and read your speech

I simply couldn't believe it when not one, but THREE of the speakers I have seen lately simply stood behind their lecterns and read their speeches - word for word.

What a waste of time!

I could probably find those speeches somewhere on the internet and read through them myself, skipping the boring parts, and be done in less than half the time I spent watching them read their scripts.

8. You try to speak with your mouth closed

For those of you who have tried this, you've probably found that it's pretty hard to do. When you're standing in front of a large group of people Donald Stephenson Broncos Jersey , it is so important to enunciate your words.

Open your mouth, project your voice and speak CLEARLY. I can't stress it enough.

What's the point of giving a presentation if we can't understand what you're saying?

9. Your power point slides are illegible, and the ones we can read are littered with typos

Check, double-check and then triple check y.
