Tech Speaking - Session #5


but before...

๐Ÿš€ย Homework ๐Ÿš€

There's no ONE way to do it

Before going on Stage

Have everything ready: slides, wi-fi, demo, offline/cached

Drink water, eat, physical exercise if possible :)

Warm up your voice, exercise, but not too much

Power posing :)

Switch to speaking mode, not reading mode

Going on stage

Sync with the event? How were the talks so far?

Introduce yourself, be excited about your talk!

Make people curious, engaged

Don't play all your aces in the first hand

On Stage

Eye contact, how?

Your body is not there to transport your head!

Watch your breath

Positioning: teaching vs preaching

As your talk progresses

Interact with the audience: show hands, rhetorical q.

Drink water if needed, stop for a sec if needed

Fighting anxiety, be prepared for the worst

Keep a close eye on your time and sync points


Always end on a high note!

Circularity is nice, bring back initial arguments

Include: call to arms, inspirational wisdom, etc.

Don't be rigid, invite people for follow-up
