How to be a "Presenter"?

Today’s session by Des Patel was an insightful introduction into the question of presentation skills. By asking us to do various exercises, she helped us understand that developing presentation skills is just a matter of practice and anybody could develop such skills.
In particular, she highlighted a number of key areas that each one of should work on when doing our presentations-for example, building confidence, speaking loud, projecting your voice, body language, the way you stand etc. In general, I believe that today’s session was an extremely valuable lesson and a good practice for our oral presentations on Friday, the eleventh of May.

Hi Valentin,
I've missed your comments on my blog. I am not casting anything in concrete yet, but I do have afair idea of where I want to go. For now I am keeping an open mind because any chance to work is an opportunity to gain experience. It's good to keep your options open.

Hello Valentin,
I really enjoyed Des's session. Presenting in front of an audience has always been very difficult for me. I can navigate comfortably through a room full of people (schmoozing) as Gordon Freer termed it but public speaking...no, no. It gives me hope for Friday as well.
