re: What do you wish you knew before doing talks? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I wish I knew how fun it can be! Many people have 'public speaking' as a huge fear... but once you get over any nervousness it can be a ton of fun :)

My pro-tip: bring a buddy to presentation! Have this person write down the time it actually takes you to speak and any questions that are asked. I find that with all the adrenaline of giving the talk, I can't remember what actually happens. With your friend taking notes you can work on improving the talk for next time. (Which is another pro-tip: give the same talk again to a new audience!)

 

Thanks Elsa!

I recently thought about this! That doing the same talks in different locations can bring deferent people with different skill levels that could potentially bring more feedback and ways to improve my slides or topics related to it.
