The Rehearsal

Registration is now open for the UKOUG Unix SIG meeting to be held on 13th September in Slough, UK.

My Newbie presentation is on the agenda.

It'll be a good opportunity for me to practice before the conference in November and to make sure I have the content right.

Anybody that is planning on attending, feedback would be appreciated!

Remember that the people who are there in the audience want you to succeed. They want to learn something from you.

So breathe, talk slowly and REPEAT any questions you get -- you will hear them but the rest of the audience won't

Don't worry about being nervous. I still get nervous when I do a presentation. Harness the energy to become very aware of what you are saying and how the audience is reacting. If you suddenly see some members of the audience glazing over, don't be afraid to stop and say "I see some confused looks, let me try to explain it another way." Or offer to take a question on that specific topic. It's nothing personal, not everyone hears what you "think" you are saying.

Oh, and don't spill the water glass!

On the other hand spilling the water glass (make sure its almost empty first), and then telling the story would be a great, but brave intro.
