Thinking About Presentation

Most people, when they think about presentation or public speaking, when they are new to it, focus on what could possibly go wrong. They imagine the mistakes they could make or forgetting the words of their presentation.

This way of thinking about giving a presentation or a speech increases public speaking anxiety. There are actions that can be taken to help lessen this anxiety:-

Start off small and be brief. Seek out opportunities to give a presentation to a small number of people and keep it to a few minutes only. In this way you build up confidence in your ability to present.

Present to people you know. It is easier to present to people you know. Ir doesn't seem so bad, if you make a mistake in front of them.
