                  <font size=”2″>Dear Readers</font>,</strong><br />
                  <br />
                  Performing any job or task for an extended period makes us prone to bad habits, and it’s no different for experienced presenters. In her article this month, contributor Olivia Mitchell points out&nbsp;&nbsp;five bad habits&nbsp;she says veteran presenters fall prey to on a regular basis. While you may not see yourself in any of these troubling traits, videotape&nbsp;can tell a&nbsp;different tale. That’s why Mitchell says it’s important, regardless of your experience level, to periodically solicit outside feedback so you can&nbsp;catch these insidious&nbsp;habits before they&nbsp;undermine your credibility as a presenter.<br />

                  </span>By Olivia Mitchell<br />
                  <br />
                  I’ve been through a long journey (25 years) of developing as a speaker. I started off shy, nervous and tentative. Now I&rsquo;m a high energy, animated speaker and I love connecting, laughing and riffing with an audience. But along the way I&rsquo;ve picked up some bad habits. Attending Doug Stevenson&rsquo;s <em>Story Theater Retreat</em> helped me identify some of these habits. So I&rsquo;m starting off this list with my bad habits and then I&rsquo;ll go onto list habits I&rsquo;ve observed among other experienced speakers.&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href=”http://presentationxpert.com/articles/the-5-bad-habits-of-experienced-speakers” target=”_blank”>
