If you lack the confidence or ability to present your ideas fluently, cohesively, intelligibly and impactfully, then you’re unlikely to influence effectively.
Questions you can ask yourself to improve:
Have I considered actively working on my presentation skills via a training program or speaking group (e.g., Toastmasters)?
What opportunities do I have to practice my speaking?
Where might I get good feedback about my current skill level?
Are there interesting books I could read to hone my knowledge of effective techniques before practicing?
