Becoming a great speaker is not rocket science, nor does it need you to be super-calculative in order to gauge your success. In fact, presenting or public speaking in seminars or conferences is quite a skill. 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?
Well, the answer to this question is right there with you. Whether you are a research scholar, a subject-matter expert, a mentor or a business coach who is determined to drive his/her research team to a mutual goal, you’re also a presenter.

What obstacles does a conference presenter face?
