If you're not having fun when presenting, why bother?

How many presentations have you sat through that have bored you to death?  Chances are, many. My guess is the presenter was bored as well.

One of the keys to a successful presentation is to honestly enjoy what you are talking about.

Your presentation does not have to be a light topic. It can be technical, informative, serious or intellectually heady, it doesn't matter. If you are really turned on by your own material, it will show.

Next time you gather your thoughts for a presentation, choose a topic or a perspective that grabs you...excites you...gets you jazzed about the chance to share your passion with an audience.

If you're not going to have fun when presenting, then why not just type up a word doc and mail it to your listeners?

Have a blast when you speak, and watch how your audience catches your fire!
