Some people rush through a presentation for fear they won’t be able to cram everything in during the time allotted to them. If your presentation has been prepared thoughtfully and rehearsed thoroughly, this not only is unnecessary, it’s self-defeating.
Thinking takes time. So give your audience the time to think about what you are saying.
Take a breath.
Look at your audience between passages.
Remember, you are having a conversation, not a speed competition. Let the audience appreciate your remarks, not struggle to keep up with them.
If you have too much information to deliver in a reasonable period of time, rewrite your remarks. Pare them down. Keep content tight and essential. That’s a more effective — and ultimately more satisfying — approach than trying to cheat the clock.
