8. prepare to present

Now that you’ve finished putting together your presentation, there are some things you can do to make it better before you step on stage. The easiest way to improve your talk is familiar to anyone who has done any kind of performance: Rehearse it before you get in front of your audience. You can also send your presentation to co-workers for their comments; it’s amazing how often other people will suggest a great point that you missed.
