Quick Tips: 6 Steps to Conquer Your Fear of Public Speaking

For many people, public speaking is not easy. For some people, it is simply terrifying. Speaking in front a large crowd, particularly of your peers, has been likened to the trauma of buying a house, going through a divorce or going to the dentist. Of course, it is far worse when your career depends on it and the stakes are high.

Taken from a post I wrote over on CityAM (found here) titled ‘How to overcome the fear of public speaking’ here’s the summarised, Quick Tips version covering six easy bullet points to conquering your fear of public speaking.

  1. Bring real value.
  2. Keep practicing.
  3. Don’t calm down.
  4. Know the audience.
  5. Tell a story.
  6. Breath. Pause. Smile.
