In this blog we’ll look at how you deal with the aftermath of a public speaking event or presentation.
So, you’ve delivered your talk, you sit down, you relax, you go home, you forget all about it, right?
Unfortunately, you couldn’t be more wrong. Because if you really want to be a good, even just competent, public speaker then post-match analysis is really important.
You know when you were at school, and you handed in a piece of work, then waited for the teacher to give it back, marked and (hopefully) not covered in red ink? The same has to apply to your presentations. They need marking…
Thinking about how you performed and asking yourself honest questions by not trying to forget all about it as soon as you breathe that final sigh of relief that it’s all over, you will be able to accurately assess your performance. So next time – and there will be a next time, even if it’s only speaking up at a meeting – you will perform so much better and enjoy it even more.
