Homework

OK, this is the part you are going to hate, but it's the most important part of this entire course. You need to practice a presentation - any presentation on any topic - on video. You can be alone in your bedroom or your office and recording on your cellphone or webcam, but you absolutely must record yourself speaking. Skipping this step of recording yourself is not an option. It is a complete waste of time to just talk your speech out loud or to speak to a mirror. You must record on video!

After you have recorded your presentation you must review the video and take notes on what you like and don't like.

Next, you must record your speech again. This time, do more of what you liked in the previous presentation and less of what you didn't like. Review this video.

Repeat the process until you are happy that you look and sound your very best.
