As a keynote speaker, the most important thing is that I deliver every time. Almost everyone has bad days but a keynote speaker simply can’t. We get one hour or so to deliver and you have to know that we’re going to do that every time.
When I point this out, it sounds a bit pretentious but I do think that a keynote speaker is a bit like an athlete. An athlete with a pretty high BMI and cholesterol, admittedly. The main similarity is that 99% of our job is preparation so that we can execute perfectly when called upon to do so. From the moment we sit down to write the presentation, through rehearsal, to getting a good sleep the night before, everything should be focussed on the moment of presentation.
