About Presentation Nerves

The negative feelings and emotions about presentation and public speaking are so common that the fear about presentation and public speaking regularly top studies of people's fears. Beating even death. Fortunately, I am not aware of anyone dying when they think about presentation or public speaking or from delivering them.

One of the things to remember about presentation fear is that an audience is usually on your side. They want you to succeed. The audience is glad it isn't them presenting because they empathize with you. Also, you will feel more nervous than the audience will think you are.

The actions that have the most impact on reducing presentation nerves and building confidence is proper preparation and practice. The other actions you can take such as visualization, meeting the audience, relaxtion techniques etc will all help.
