How do you feel about Public Speaking?

    How do you feel about Public Speaking?

    By: Miranda Eisermann, Past President

    Your stomach is queasy, your palms are sweaty, and your mind has gone blank about your opening lines. What will you be like when you've been introduced and the room goes quiet? Are you doomed to presentation panic or paralysis, or can you overcome that debilitating nervousness and deliver a speech that wows the audience?

    If you are like most people, then public speaking or presenting is one of your major fears. Usually a number one fear and death is fourth.

    You don’t need to get rid of your nervousness. This is because presenting is not a natural activity; even the most practiced presenters get a bit nervous. The point is this: your nervous energy can be used to your advantage. When you are in a heightened state from the adrenaline that is being pumped into your body, you can use that energy to communicate enthusiastically, convincingly, and passionately. The key is to decrease your level of nervousness so you can use your energy on these positive activities, not on trying to control your nerves.

    The more you can control the uncertainty, the less nervousness you will experience and the more residual energy you will have to devote to the presentation itself.
