How to Overcome my fear of Public Speaking?
 
Hello Earl,
 
Maybe you can help me. I am speaking at a company event next week and have never spoken in front of an audience.
 
I'm finding as I get closer to the event, I am getting more stressed and have some anxiety. You could say, I have a fear of public speaking.
 
Do you have a couple of tips you can provide to help overcome my fear of public speaking?
 
Thank you for your help.

Hello Joel,
 
Thank you for your question.
 
Tips on overcoming the fear of public speaking is something I get asked often.
 
Here are some of the tips I tell people to try:
 
 
1. Know your material, don't memorize it, learn it.
 
2. Work from a bullet point outline.
 
3. Get to your event early and practice your speech in the room.
 
4. Meet a few people in the front row, that way, come presentation time you will not be speaking to a room full of strangers.
 
5. Speak to one person at a time. 5 seconds each in the front row until you're more comfortable.
 
 
I hope these tips on losing your fear of public speaking has been helpful you.
 
I also have video tutorials full of tips and pointers on my Youtube channel, feel free to have a look.
 
More information and additional resources to learn about public speaking and losing your fear of public speaking can be found on the Vocal Power Website.
