Preparation tips for the DAY OF Your Speaking Engagement

It’s the day of your speaking engagement – the preparation is over. It’s time to take the stage and delight your audience. Of course you’re a little bit nervous! That’s normal. Now that you’ve done the work to prepare your material, here is where you need to shift your attention to your GAME DAY STRATEGY.

Try these tips and you’ll see what I mean.
