PodiumWise | Tips for advanced presentation skills

I’ve been asked to give a talk this weekend and as I started working on it I caught myself organizing too quickly.  With limited time to prepare, I was eager to get an outline nailed down.  No time to waste!

As reassuring as an outline can be, rushing to create one short-circuits creativity.  Engaging and creative content requires some brainstorming.  I needed to give myself the freedom to scribble random ideas on paper without any concern for how I might use them. 

This was not wasted time.  It generated pages of possible material with several options I had not thought of initially.  Now I can begin work on an outline.

I’ll get done on time with a better message.
