Game Day

It is the day for the main event. You have important research to share and you have carefully prepared your research talk. Make this moment count. Get enough sleep the night before to make sure you are physically prepared. Dress nicely. It is always better to be overdressed than underdressed. Wearing nice clothes will help you feel confident and will convey respect for the audience. Finally, build yourself up emotionally. Be your own coach. You have been practicing your talk, perfecting your slides, and honing your performance skills. You have got this.
