Would you like to give presentations with the ease of chatting with friends in your living room? If so, check out “Presentation Tips for Introverts,” a story I just wrote for business technology author Patrice-Ann Rutledge‘s blog. You’ll find answers to these questions:
- What’s the best way to manage your fear of public speaking?
- How can introverts learn to command a room and project a confident image while presenting, even if they don’t feel so confident inside?
- Do introverts share certain characteristics that actually make them good presenters?
If you use PowerPoint and want to learn to use it better, don’t miss Rutledge’s new book, Using Microsoft® PowerPoint® 2010, which is positioned as “more than just a book.” Rutledge (an introvert!) offers a wealth of online resources including video tutorials and podcasts to help reinforce the learning. You’ll find more about improving your presentation skills in my book, Self-Promotion for Introverts®. With these resources, you’ll become a more confident and technically proficient presenter—and in a relatively short time!
