Don't you just hate to be around boring people?  They're a turn-off. We all prefer to be in the company of exciting, alive individuals who love life and show it.

Presentations are no different. If you can't get excited about your presentation, how can you expect your listeners to get excited about what you are saying?

All presentations are like the common cold: they are contagious.

Your audience can "catch" your emotions. If you are bored with your own material, your audience will be too. If you are passionate about your content, it will translate to your listeners.
