This Mind Map was developed for a Presentation to be delivered to an Open House at a Toastmaster Club.
Read it by starting at 12:00 and going clockwise.
“See” how much easier it is to look at an icon vs. black and white text. I “know my stuff” so I just need a reminder of each nugget.
I won’t go thru the entire presentation, but here are a few “Nuggets.”
1. You are not alone! 75% of the population suffers from glossophobia, the fear of public speaking. It is a word, not a disease, and it can be controlled!
2a. You really never want to get rid of the butterflies in your stomach. A little nervous energy is good. You want those butterflies to fly in formation!
2b. Never, Never, Never tell the audience you are nervous. They will be looking for it and it could become a self-fulling prophecy.
3a. Arrive early at the event to Meet & Greet people who will be in the audience. You will be amazed at how much easier it is to present to people you’ve already met.
3b. Name Tags make the Meet & Greet much easier. They close the gap between people by reaching out and pulling you in.
