Think about your last presentation. Think about how you felt an hour before you gave the presentation. You were probably nervous, desperately revising your script and terrified of one thing – “what if I make a mistake and look stupid?”
Let me share a secret with you, everyone who gives a presentation feels that way. No matter how confident they look or how many years they’ve been presenting, they will still worry about making a mistake.
The trick is to prepare so well as to reduce the chances of making an embarrassing mistake, and to have the confidence and skills so that if you do make a mistake, you can correct it and continue presenting.
And that is what Cogito Toastmasters Dublin can do for you, each of our meetings are designed to provide a comfortable environment to speak in front of an audience and if you make a mistake then we’ll give you the tools and knowledge to avoid it the next time you speak.
Come along to our next meeting and see how we can help you become the speaker you’ve always dreamed of being!
