  • Lehua

    Great job Kay!
    You hit everything spot on 🙂 I would also add that, to keep the momentum and positive flow, one should speak in a way that is reassuring, positive and uplifting! You know how you can “hear” someone smiling on the phone? Well a great presenter should be SO delighted to give his/her speech, that he/she comes to the meeting EQUIPPED with an extra large smile for his audience 😀

    Swell Job Kay. I’ll talk to you soon,

  • Janny Manla

    I have always wanted to become one but never had any formal training about becoming a presenter. This post, though, was clearly presented in a manner so simple yet so informative and helpful especially for wannabes like me. Thank you, Kay! This is awesome!

  • Great post! I’ve only done a few webinars and they DO take practice. They get easier every time and you start to have a lot of fun.

    I have found the best thing to do if you are nervous is to start spending more time using voice chat to talk to people. Otherwise it feels a little awkward talking into a microphone if you aren’t used to it.

  • Thanks Lehua, I agree that is so true. We as business people should always Smile when on calls it brightens everyone’s day. Yes, you can hear a smile on the phone. Very good point indeed.

  • Thank you Janny. You know what Janny, that is why your first one should be with me. I help you through that uncomfortable feeling. That is why we keep our environment comfortable for our audience.


  • Amanda,
    I am proud of you that you have ventured out. Yes, with time you do get more comfortable. Although, you still have to practice your presentation. One thing I forgot to include is know your presentation like you were talking to your best friend. The better the presentation the better your conversion rate.


  • Very good points you make here Kay. Though I’m not looking to do any presentations at the moment, should I ever change my mind, I know where to go. Thanks.

    Very good informative and motivational article. and i really love it. you are right that we have to make this presentation as a routine in our business plan so instead of fearing about it take it as a challenge and make it happen.

    it is all about attitude. if you see this as an challenge than you overcome it and if you see it as a disaster than you are going to fail on it anyway.

    doing videos, feedback has taught me of essential contradictions – relaxed but brisk, neither over- nor under-inform, reinforce without circling.
    I found my best technique was to read it all the way thru twice, then turn on the recorder and read thru. That resulted n the least editing and got me the correct balance. The other practice that helped was to pick any random lenghty document and read it out loud; at first, the number of “pause sounds” (um, hmmm, really?) was far larger than I would have suspected.
    Think some of the same techniques would apply to webinars 🙂

  • Kay,

    I like your blogs. Written from your heart.
    Keep it up!

    Renu Bakshi

  • Great post and great advise from such an amazing leader in the Industry. Thanks for all you do, Kay!

  • What a great post! The best thing to help with being a presenter is practice as well. The more you do it, the easier it will get. Thanks for the pointers, Kay. I’m sure it will help some up and coming presenters 🙂

  • Thanks Jonathan. I certainly hope it does help people in the Internet Marketing world. It is important to get yourself out there and show the public what you have to offer. Your skills are very important to others. The way we learn is to listen and watch others. It takes an extreme amount of courage and self-confidence to do presentations. The biggest thing anyone can do for themselves is step out of the comfort zone and bite the bullet. Presentations are the key to your success IMO.


  • Wow Janet I am honored that you would say that about me. Thank you so much. You are a great presenter. You are one of the best out there IMHO.


  • Thank you Renu. I appreciate you taking a look at them. I am here to help if you need it.


  • Yes, Hagar you made some very valid points and I really appreciate you take the time for those who come and read the article to have more information. The goal is to be the best we can be. The whole intentions of my site and webinars are to help those who want to get out of the comfort zone. Your input is very valuable to those who would like to do webinars.


  • Sanjay, Yes, we all have some sort of fear. The best thing we can do is step up and not let that fear get the best of us. It is important to realize that most anything we fear is holding us back from success. Webinars have a fantastic conversation rate and you can’t go wrong. Challenge yourself to get out of that comfort zone and do something great for yourself. Webinars are one of the fastest and easiest ways to bring you financial growth.


  • Xarah, one day you will be ready to do presentations. Actually you already do them. You do YouTube videos. Those are considered to be a presentation. You have the skills the my friend.


  • Hi kay, That was quite an inspiring article. i also don’t do presentations but would love to do some day and will visit your blog often to see what you have to say. Your post was easy reading and look forward to reading more of your articles. I have bookmarked your site. 🙂
