How (don’t) fail in a Public Presentation

There are people don’t need to practice. People who practice a little and people who practice exhaustively.

The book TED TALKS by Chris Anderson, Teds President, is very useful.

It teaches you how:

  • choice of the theme presentation
  • start the presentation
  • prepare the thread of your main idea
  • don’t leave people to fall asleep
  • keep the ego in its own zone


In Porto Design Factory I learned about Design Thinking:

  • study and plan
  • test it
  • monitor it
  • evaluate it
  • start again


With this two kinds of tips, is easier to do a public presentation. But for now, this seems like:

  • practice, practice, practice
  • practice again: what do you want to say and how do you want to say it?
  • in the pre test you realise you presentation is not in the right screen resolution
  • look to the public and forget what you want to say
  • mix up different slides
  • legs start shaking
  • getting feedback
  • practice
  • try again!
