Interesting findings not related to CoPo (Presentation tips)

During a 'Professional Presentation' course I attended held by AIM, Judy Ludy from the 'The Learning Catalyst' suggested the following strategies to help overcome 'communication apprehension'

- be organised
- practice
- breath deeply
- move (take a few steps)
- focus on relaxing (tell yourself 'I am relaxed)
- release tension (tighten and release one set of muscles at a time for eg.toes)
- visualize(prepare a mental picture of yourself successfully delivering the presentation)
- reward yourself after your have delivered a great presentation
I have found the 'visualize strategy' the most useful. Prior to this course I was visualing - but that the presentation was a disaster!!! So now I visualise it succeeding and I am much less nervous.
