Today’s Tip – Persevere through setbacks!; I forgot my notes, study hard –
When in a meeting research is essential to winning over your audience. If you forgot your notes how can one be prepared in that situation? Memorizing your research is a great starting point. It is not all about sitting down and memorizing every bit of information. It is about going over your research and presentation to the point where it becomes secondhand. Wasting your time memorizing is like getting ready for a test.
A presentation is more of a presentation of your personality. You are selling yourself so they buy into listening to you. How do you get this to happen? Understand what you are talking about. Notes are a simple selling point. People like to know you have your stuff together. That is the point to notes. They help visually prove you did your homework. Speaking off the cuff (with a memorized direction) will get the job done.
Set up your room in a meeting situation. Then go through your presentation. Start with talking alone, then bring friends over, or family, to watch you bring the magic. Ask them to give you notes on what you had done. You can even have them ask you questions during your presentation of where they may or may not be confused. This will allow you a moment to clarify, or rework your presentation to rid if of anything too convoluted.
