What if I fidget, sway, use fillers or forget my talk track?

It happens to all of us. As soon as we get up to present, the nervous ticks we forgot we had come right back up to the surface! The best way to combat nerves? Deliberate movement.

When you finish an idea, pause, take a few steps, plant your feet, inhale, then start your next idea. Your audience will be better able to connect, your pace will automatically slow down, and you have time to remember your next point. Practice deliberate movement to get comfortable with the pause.
