It is NOT about you. It is ABOUT them. It is amazing how many speakers forget to remember that one simple sentence in their lives. Don’t worry on how you look as a speaker. Don’t worry on how you sound as a speaker. Don’t worry if your handouts look glitzy. Just worry about what your audience learns from your speech. Worry about not wasting your audience’s time. As a speaker concentrate on giving your audience the best that you have to offer. Give them the reason that they are glad they came to sit and listen to you speak!
