How to Sabotage Your Presentation

Want to make the most common mistakes in the business? Just do the following:

Use PowerPoint as a planning tool.
Instead, first figure out your session’s Purpose. Write it down. Then identify the 3 major points you need to make. Write them down. Create your slides ONLY to support these points.

Practice just in your head. 
Yes, run through your presentation mentally-especially the first three minutes. But also present several times in front of a mirror or another human being.

Know that technology will always work.
Instead, do all you can to be self-sufficient. Be ready to use your own computer, cables, power strip, even projector. Have your presentation on a flashdrive (or several.) Be prepared for the worst–it may well happen.
