If you are the type of person to get nervous before a big presentation, these simple steps are the cure for you! Have you ever noticed that the hardest part when presenting is the first few minutes? Once you've warmed up, things get considerably easier. So grab a buddy as you will need some help for 5minutes!

What You'll Need

  • A friend or colleague + a newspaper / magazine.
  • Do this 5-10 minutes before your presentation.

What You'll Do

  • 1) Get your friend to choose a subject at random in the newspaper and then ask you to talk about it as if you were presenting for 30 seconds. Repeat a second time (for 30 seconds as well).
  • 2) Get your friend to choose a section from your presentation for you to present. Do this a second time for 30 seconds again (another section from your presentation). Then finally a third section fro 1 minute. You will see you feel much more relaxed for your presentation!
