A Tricky Balance to Strike When Presenting

“Step outside your comfort zone” they say.

Well, yes.

But.

I was reminded tonight by an MEP here in Hungary 🇭🇺 that there are instances where it’s important to speak FROM a position of comfort.

Maybe that means ditching the tie.

Or wearing flats instead of heels.

Or having speech notes (not full-blown script) to one side for occasional reference.

If it’ll make a difference to your ability to give of your best to your audience…

Then embrace comfort too.

Tricky balance to strike?

Often.

But an important one nontheless.

One of the best investments in personal development I had at BP was to engage Simon Bucknall as a personal public speaking coach. He was phenomonal and key to my moving from being a very nervous public speaker to a strong and confident one.
