Interesting point on exercise and eating a banana!

Sounds like practice is the main point.

This was very useful and highlights some of the areas I have difficulty with. I must remember:

- don't expect perfection

- listen to my self practice as I do repeat words

- eat well and exercise

A really useful article. I appreciate the advice on diet and exercise although its one point we all probably already know but its true that heavy meals affect my performance so I will keep this in mind in my working life. As I am exposed more in my professional life to more business meetings I can appreciate the need not to sound over rehearsed if i want the audience whether thats my staff members or commissioners to fully buy into the information I am delivering. I will keep these tips in mind in future meetings and training sessions which should have a positive impact on the inforamtion I am trying to deliver
