Best tip ever for talk/speech presentation ...

I’ve got a big speech/presentation to give tomorrow afternoon at the Lean Agile Scotland conference. I’m the closing keynote. I feel a lot of responsibility because, as the last speaker, if I screw up then it’s a horrible way for folk to finish 3 days worth of an otherwise wonderful conference.

Frankly - between you and I - I’m a still a little bit nervous. 

So tonight I’ve gone back to my hotel room to practice and, while doing so, I’ve had a brilliant idea. You know how they say that if you’re nervous when you’re giving a talk you should just pretend everyone in the audience is naked, and then the nervousness will go away? Well, I’m a bit nervous, so I’ve stripped off and I’m rehearsing in front of the mirror, butt naked.
