Hi Professor Savings readers,
You’ve probably heard before that you shouldn’t give up before you’re out of the game. This applies to so many areas in life, including business presentations. As you’ll learn in this video, self deprecating statements, not to be confused with self deprecating humor, should be avoided at all cost.
While you may feel that lowering the expectations of the audience is a fail proof way to succeed
If they don’t expect much they’ll be impressed with little, however what usually happens is that they’ll find themselves agreeing with you. If you state that you aren’t ready or that your presentation is for some reason not up to par, the audience is going to hear a presentation that isn’t up to par.
So have the courage of your convictions and confidently move forward as if you believe you’re going to give the best presentation you ever have; even if that isn’t the way things turn out.
Confidence is a major factor to success, as is smart decision making, two factors that’ll tie in directly with not counting yourself out before you get to the finish line.
Advice from the experts is a great place to start when seeking help with decision making and professional skills that’ll enable you to get ahead; the sort of expert advice you’ll find here!
