To leave a strong impression on your audience, you need to prepare and present yourself with a lot more than just clothes and accessories. Be it at a research-oriented presentation or when stepping-in for someone as a guest speaker somewhere, there are always moments when you feel nervous about speaking in front of an audience.
So, who really is a presenter or speaker?
