If you don’t control completely the language of your presentation, you’re doing a disservice to your topic, you are giving a bad deal to your audience, and altogether you’re putting your presentation in great danger.
The status quo may be poor, and everyday we hear bad presentations, and those bad presentations are often done by non-native speakers. The fact that everyone around us is making the same mistake doesn’t make it right.
I give you two options: You can ask for a translator or you can select a crowd that speaks a different language.
Always present in the language that you master, that you control, where you feel more confident. This will boost your delivery in a way that nothing else can. No matter how much you work on your storytelling, no matter how much you work on your slide design, this will all go to waste if you are not proficient with the language
- You must master the language if you are looking for excellence in presentation delivery
