Suzanne, great points in here. We all have insecurities — I think bringing them up publicly can help sometimes, but as you rightly point out, it can highlight unprofessionalism, a blase attitude, and disorganization in a presentation.
You give some really helpful suggestions. When it comes down to it, presentations are damn scary. But there’s not too much unexpected that can’t be planned for.
I say yes to faking it til you make it in a presentation! :) I think it makes it worse to reinforce your own insecurities in that situation. It’s much better to just move on and review what went wrong later.
Thanks for sharing Suzanne. Cheers! :)
