The eloquence of the speaker might have been evident but like a cheap Chinese meal you were left somewhat hungry and disappointed soon after the presentation.
Content does matter as so do the actual words you will use and how you use them.
Aung San Suu Kyi will be addressing both houses of the British Parliament this afternoon in the historic Westminster Hall. This honour is usually extended only to heads of state. She will be only the second women after the Queen to do so.
The publicity of her European tour , her first since 1998 has raised expectations but the Nobel Laureate and Burmese opposition leader still has to deliver a speech of substance.
Her undoubted charisma , personality and eloquence are important of course, but I guess she will have to have thought and prepared very carefully what message she wants to convey.
Despite her outward serenity we can imagine that she will be nervous and excited by the occasion.

We may never have to make a presentation of such high profile as Aung San Suu Kyi's to the 'mother of parliaments' but the preparation of our presentation's content is the key to overcoming any nervous tension we may have as a speaker.
Our confidence will increase in direct relation to the amount of preparation you have done for your presentation.
If, however you get into the habit of preparing presentations fully when you do have the time, you will find it much easier to put together an effective presentation when time is against you.
