First, say things out loud to see. how they sound. Why? Thinking and speaking trigger different neurons. (See sports visualisation exercises)
Then, put on a timer and click through your slides. Modify as necessary.
- Q&A - don't do it unless you want to.
- Hallway track - usually good, not always.

- Improve your presentation
- Blogpost, tutorial, workshop.
- Spinoff talk, podcast?

- move around nervously
- if you have to move, direct it. (Walking is conscious.)
