One great thing that I learned from both managing an elaborate event and taking a public speaking course is that, often times, several things can go wrong without anyone noticing or caring. Maybe something you planned to happen, happens late, or doesn’t happen at all. Maybe you forgot one of the main points of your speech or stumbled over a word. These things happen and they can make you very self-conscious (if you’re like me then they may even give you mild anxiety!) but if you keep your cool and roll with it then all the audience will see is a good show.
