Today I gave a presentation to 200ish staff at work. Am not generally a particularly outgoing person and you won’t often find me speaking in front of large groups. But I loved it. I loved being pushed. Being out of my comfort zone. Rising to the challenge. Doing something that I knew at least 80% of the audience would probably never do. The two main things that I think made a huge impact on how I performed and how I felt about it (both before, during and after) were 1) I was interested in, understood, and cared deeply about the content, and 2) practice, practice, practice. I had a similar feeling after delivering training as part of my train-the-trainer course (and the same reasons applied then too).
