I would say the most important tip is to be energetic and passionate - act as if you just had three red bulls and a Viagra (OK, not the latter, and I wouldn't recommend actually trying the former, but you know what I mean). Raise your voice while keeping it stable - do not shout - just talk loudly, and move about while switching your eye contact from the front rows to the back.

Ishai runs a consultancy - Extelligent Design - which provides clients with architecture advice, development services and products around Microsoft's SharePoint platform. As a Microsoft MVP he's well used to speaking in front of crowds, and will be speaking at Skepticamp Sydney 2011
