Positive Messages – How to be more positive in your next speech or presentation

If you want to be more positive in your next presentation, I encourage you to:

  1. Practise delivering your presentation out loud
  2. Record it (on video or audio) so you can review your presentation OR get a colleague to give you feedback
  3. Seek out negative language and replace it with more positive language
