Too often the cruise ship lecturer has been to a destination and now considers him/herself an expert. By hook or by crook they are able to get themselves a gig and before they know it, they are on stage.
The problem is, they are not an expert. They are wannabes.
For sure, they do their research. They have their facts. They have done their homework. They are ready to pass the test and get an A on their latest oral presentation.
But, without their notes or their slides as a crutch, they are toast. When they get a question, they stutter and stammer till the bell rings.
For sure, the cruise ship lecturer can get by and even do an exceptional job by preparing in this way. But in the end, nothing will beat being a true expert on the topic you are presenting.
Any discerning audience can tell you when you have a memorized, even very well rehearsed script of solid content and when you are swelled up inside with so much information you don’t know where to start, you are just picking the best of the best of your deep reservoir of knowledge on the topic.
You don’t have to be an expert to a good presentation. But it really helps. And the more expertise you have the more likely you are to avoid a bad presentation.
To get on board, reach out and we won’t just tell you what to do, we will work with you step-by-step all the way.
