I’m working on my presentation, and the stress of public speaking is making it difficult to accomplish anything substantial. Trying to craft something that’s clear, concise, technical yet easy to understand, and interesting is a bit of a challenge. That, and I’m having difficulty finding something new to say that hasn’t already been said in the previous presentation or written in one of the assignments. So far, I’ve only been able to accomplish an introductory slide sans transcript and two slides with visuals, and I’m worried that I won’t have enough material for ten minutes. Furthermore, I’m terrible at improvisation. Usually I’m so nervous that I have to read directly off of my notes, so I’m trying to finish the presentation in enough time that I can know it well and be comfortable with the material when it comes time to get up in front of everyone. Anyone else having difficulty with any of these things? Any tips?
