What I Learned From Public Speaking So Far

  1. 50%
    About 50% of the audience is not listening to you
  2. Underwear
    The old saying "picture the audience in their underwear" yea, that doesn't really work
  3. Own your mistakes
    If you mess up in front of people who are familiar with the topic, own your mistake
  4. Messing up
    If you're the only expert in the group and no one knows you messed up, just keep going
  5. Enunciate
    Open your mouth more than usual. When you're nervous, you tend to speak faster and mumble
  6. Nervousness
    Don't eat a big meal before public speaking, especially if you are like me and get nervous.
