Another big mistake is to write out their entire presentation longhand. Many presenters see delivering a presentation like learning lines in a play. We think that we have to create a script first. If you think about the logical "next steps,", though, you will quickly see the big challenge. Because, after the script is written, you only have two choices. Choice one is to just read the entire presentation. (Very boring!) Option two is to memorize the entire script. That adds an extreme level of complexity to the delivery, and it doesn't fix the initial problem with option number one. (It is still going to be very boring.) To fix this, just create a simple outline of your major points.
