Presentation Skills - Too Distracting To Listen To

I couldn't wait to hear the next presenter. He had great credentials, great experience, and knowledge that was going to help me advance in my business. But... he paced back and forth. He went to one side of the room stopped and spoke to that side of the audience, then came back to the side I was on and spoke to us. He kept doing this at a pretty quick pace. It was so distracting I couldn't focus on his content!

Then came the next presenter. This one spoke so loud that people out in the parking lot could hear him. This public speaker also came with great credentials, great experience, and knowledge that would help me with my business, but... I just couldn't focus on what he was saying because he was just giving me a headache.

It was time for the third and final speaker of the evening. But... you guessed it. I didn't learn a thing from her either. She spoke too soft and with no enthusiasm about her presentation.

Public Speaking Skills tip: If you want your audience to hear what you have to say, then be aware of your distracting habits and change them. Stand center stage most of the time, if not all the time. Speak at a normal pitch so everyone can listen to you with ease. And be enthusiastic and passionate about your subject.
