The Art is in hiding the Art? Say what now? Let me explain.
If you’re good with people one-on-one, or in small groups, you already have what you need on stage. The art is in hiding the art, as they say in Hollywood. And, the more conversational you are, the more successful you’ll be!
Of course, it’s natural to be apprehensive before a major presentation or pitch. We’re all human and a large audience can be intimidating. So practice your speech as if you’re telling a best friend a story. You could practice with a colleague you love.
When you go on stage be mindful, relax in the present. Be a story teller. Your audience will be grateful and your talk will be remembered.
This video makes the point.
