  Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking
 by: Dana Bristol-Smith

Knocking knees, butterflies (who came up with that word?) in your stomach, sweaty palms, quavering
voice. We’ve all been there – some of us more than others. I’m going to share with you some of the
tricks of the trade to help manage and reduce your anxiety before and during your presentation. These
methods are tried and true and have helped many presenters.

The first time is always the worst and it gets better from there.

In 1991, I gave my first presentation to a large audience. My audience was 150 fifth and six grade
students in an outside courtyard of an elementary school. I was scheduled to give a 35-minute student
assembly that explained a collection of international artifacts (masks, musical instruments, hats, and
other interesting items). It was a program designed to increase multicultural understanding. I was so
fired up about the topic, and thought that it was such an important subject that I thought I could deliver
the program.

Well, of course everything went wrong! The wind picked up and knocked some of the items off the
display table (the kids thought this was funny, I didn’t). The microphone had that horrible screeching
feedback. My knees shook the whole time, my voice quavered, my heart pounded – and I felt like it
was going on forever. I got through my content somehow and looked at my watch. I gave a 35-minute
presentation in 15-minutes! I think that I probably forgot to breathe.

After packing up my items and loading them in my car, I collapsed in the driver’s seat. When my heart
starting beating normally, I had a realization. My realization was that I did deliver the program,
yes–terribly, but I did finish it and it would probably never again be that bad. From that point on, I
learned something from every program I gave; how to keep the audience engaged, how to test AV
equipment BEFORE I started, how to breathe normally and speak at the same time. The list goes on
and on. In three years, I delivered this program to more than 100,000 students and teachers.

Today, I help adults develop the skills of public speaking. It seems that everyone has some degree of
nervousness or anxiety. What I know is that you can live through those feelings and that over time they

get easier and easier to deal with. Give these strategies a try and see if they will help you too.

How about having a conversation?

Use your mental energy to think of your next presentation as a conversation. You have conversations
all day, every day! Do you get nervous before a conversation? Most conversations are non-threatening
experiences, just a way for two or more people to communicate something. How is a presentation
different than that? Try to think of your presentation as a conversation, just with a few more people.
See if that eases your mind and nerves.

Make some new friends in the audience.

Most people are nervous in front of an audience of strangers. What would happen if you had a friend in
the audience, or a group of friends? Would you feel more comfortable? Next time you have to give a
presentation to a group you don’t know – do something revolutionary! Introduce yourself, shake hands,
and greet as many of the audience as possible before your talk begins. That way, when you’re
standing in the front of the room looking out, it is no longer a sea of strangers, but a friendly group,
because you met some of the people first. You’ll want to find them in the audience and make eye
contact, and it won’t be too hard, because they’ll probably be smiling at you.

Put yourself in your audience’s shoes for a moment. Imagine that you are attending a special seminar
at work. How would you feel if before the seminar, the speaker took a moment to introduce herself to
you? Would you be a more receptive listener to what she had to say? I bet your answer is yes!

How about smiling?

Smiling has a physiological affect on us – it helps to calm our nerves and make us feel better. It also
has the added bonus of making us appear more pleasant, comfortable and happy – definite positive
characteristics of a presenter. Often times, the audience will mirror the expression of the presenter. So
guess what happens when you smile? You got it; your audience will be more likely to smile back at
you.

Let’s review.

You’ve just learned some simple, yet effective, techniques to help reduce and manage nervousness
while giving a presentation. I challenge you to try them out and see if they work for you.

Remember to:

1. Have a conversation with your audience.

2. Make some new friends before your presentation.

3. SMILE! It just might prove infectious and make you feel a whole lot more at ease!

4. Learn from every presentation you give and you’ll see that it does get easier and easier.

Some people are stressed just with the thought of standing up and speaking in public. They avoid
public speaking like a plague. It´s hard for them to have all eyes on them. Whether they work alone or
with large numbers of people, they would have to speak in public if they want to accomplish certain
tasks. Also, one cannot be a leader and achieve meaningful accomplishments if they themselves are
afraid to speak in public.

One of the main things to remember in order to figure out a way on how to overcome fear of public
speaking is that it does not have to be stressful. Understand what the cause of the stress is and where
it is coming from. You would also have to remember the key principles. This will give you the
confidence that you need when speaking in public.

So many aspects in life are stressful as they already are. Public speaking does not have to be
stressful. If you can´t help but feel stressed with just the idea of speaking in public, then deal with the
stress in the same way that you would deal with any of the stress in your life.

So many people have already learned the tips when it comes to speaking in front of people and they
managed not to be stressed at all. Voices tremble and knees would shake – these are the most
common signs of fear of public speaking.

If these are already happening to you, and you want to overcome your fear, the first thing you should
do is to stop these from happening. It´s your body, clearly you can control it.

It does not make you abnormal if you are afraid to speak in public. A way for you on how to overcome
fear of public speaking is to have the right plan of action, right understanding, and right guiding
principles. It is not hard, in fact, you can do this overnight. You just have to set your approach on the
right path when it comes to speaking in public.

Another thing one must remember as a way on how to overcome fear of public speaking is that he
does not have to be brilliant nor perfect in order to succeed. The people who are afraid to speak in
public watch the people who could and think that they should be as entertaining, smart, witty, polished,
and calm as them.

just believe in themselves and to just do it.
