I've been to and given 1000's of presentations, online and in person. I've witnessed and sometimes been guilty of making fundamental mistakes that have hurt, rather than enhanced the content and the delivery. Getting it wrong can adversely effect the quality of the message, the credibility of the presenter and the outcome of the session. Regardless of how knowledgeable, professional or competent you are, the quality of your delivery and supporting resources can immediately turn your audience off, or draw them in.

So, if you have to stand and deliver, make sure your giving your presentation the best chance of hitting it's mark and achieving your objectives and showcasing yourself and your business in the best way possible.
