Presenting and communication
At some point while starting up your business, you will almost certainly have to give a presentation. This might be to potential investors, to potential clients, or to members of staff.

Many people find presenting and public speaking very difficult. But the people watching you speak are likely to form an opinion of your business largely based on your presenting abilities. This might not be fair, but that is sadly the way it is.

If you are unsure of your presenting abilities you might wish to consider taking a course, either in business presentation or public speaking. This can help build up your confidence and provide you with some of the key skills required to get your message across succinctly and effectively.
