Slow it down, folks.

Take time to look at your audience, really see them (and gauge their engagement).

Take time to ask questions of your audience (and build rapport, gain understanding).

Talk to them, not at them.

Breathe, pause, relax. Seriously, breathe. Inhale. Exhale.

Be careful not to be so anxious to motor through your presentation and “just get through it” that you forget to connect with your audience and be yourself.

Just slow it down a little.
