Azadeh Namdari: The actress and TV host
Practice your communication skills so you present clearly. Presenting requires you to speak with a clear and consistent tone so other people watching can easily understand you. Practice holding conversations with people without using filler words like “um” or “ah.” If there isn’t anyone to practice holding conversations with, try reading out loud since you may need to read from a script or prompter when you’re an actual presenter. Have a genuine interest in people while you’re holding a conversation with them. Rather than letting a conversation die, always look for ways to continue talking to have a deeper discussion. Practice articulating each word while you’re speaking or reading so you’re less likely to stumble over your sentences.
