Article Body:
If you search in Google for the term “public speaking tips” you get
roughly 2.6 million responses. That seems like a lot, but when you have
to be the one standing in front of the group there isn’t enough
information in the world that could get you over that fear.

Believe it or not, most of those fears are self imposed. What do I mean?
The people listening to you don’t really care how the information is
disseminated, they just want at the information. It’s the speaker that
puts themselves through the ringer weeks before the event. Here are some
tips that may seem obvious, but once completed, will really put your mind
at ease, trust me.

Public Speaking Tip #1

KNOW YOUR TOPIC! I don’t mean know your topic, I mean inside and out,
upside down, what ever question someone could throw at you, you know the
answer. You really need to be prepared to reach this level. You need to
know your speech almost by heart; you need to know the products you will
be discussing. Do your homework, you will know you have reached public
speaking Nirvana when you get that “feeling”, it will come with
knowledge. Believe!

Public Speaking Tip #2

Greet as many of the attendees prior to your speech as possible.
Familiarity promotes confidence. Besides, think of the benefit you
provide the topic you are to speak on when you take the time to meet
people before you go on.
This strategy also prevents you from pacing back and forth and worrying
yourself to death until you go on. There is no point in cramming now, if
you don’t know it, you wont, and it will show.

Public Speaking Tip #3

DON’T think everyone in the audience is naked, this in fact will hurt
your chances of a successful public speaking outing.
Public Speaking Tip # 4

When you find yourself with only a mouthful of uhs and ums, stop
yourself, repeat the sentence as if to add importance, and replace the
uhs and ums with silence to allow your points to hit home.

Public Speaking Tip # 5

Animate your speech. Most people think that good communication is mouth-
centric. Nothing could be farther from the truth! To be a powerful
communicator, you have to use your entire body. Gestures and body
language add energy and enthusiasm to your speech.
These are tips can really help you take your next step in public
speaking. Do you realize that people pass up promotions because they will
be required to speak publicly?

Do you realize people fear speaking in public more than they fear dying?
Maybe because dying is abstract and appears far away while the podium is
right in front of them. Either way, you really can come to grips with
your fear and maybe you won’t enjoy it, but you’ll be able to get through
it easier. I can’t emphasize enough that half of your battle will be
just knowing what you are going to say, and anticipating what others are
going to ask. It can be easy!
